While he's not quite to the Kobe Bryant(notes) level of being on the cover, Brandon Jennings(notes) is featured in the newest issue of GQ. The article, which isn't yet available online, goes in to the basic Jennings info: he's young but talented, he played in Italy, he scored 55 points in a game once. You know, the hits.
But there's also something that we didn't know — he's head-over-heels for Ciara and she doesn't even know it. Davy Rothbart's profile provides Jennings' suave plans for their first date.
First, he'll fly you to his new, adopted hometown of Milwaukee, where you'll sit courtside at one of his games. Then he'll take you out downtown for a nice (but not extravagant) dinner at a steak house called Carnevor, a favorte spot of his. From there, the nightlife options are a bit limited; Jennings, still months away from his twenty-first birthday, can't get into any of the local clubs. So a movie might be in order — say, "Ninja Assassin?" He's already seen it, but if you haven't, he'd watch it again. Or maybe some video games back at his condo?
"We don't have to be in a rush," he says. "we can take it step-by-step. Let's just hand out, have fun, and see what happens."
Sounds like an awesome date. There's nothing girls like more than dinner, followed by a ninja movie and some video games. At least the ones worth keeping.
So if you happen to know Ciara, do your best to get a copy of this magazine in her hands as soon as possible. We could be looking at the NBA's next power couple. Sorry, Lamar.
