Brandon Jennings sends three tweets about Warriors in middle of night

While many of you were asleep last night, Brandon Jennings was awake.

The point guard had some thoughts about the Warriors, so he sent out the following three tweets at about 1:30am PT:

Jennings signed a 1-year, $5 million deal with the Knicks last summer, but was waived in late February.

He signed with the Wizards, and averaged 3.5 points and 4.7 assists in 16.3 minutes over 23 games with Washington.

The 27-year old shot a dismal 27 percent from the field and just over 21 percent from deep.

OAKLAND -- Upon closer review of the Washington Wizards and some of their late-game actions, JaVale McGee feels vindicated.

McGee was blistered by the Wizards, particularly guards Brandon Jennings and John Wall, for hoisting a 3-pointer with the shot clock ticking down Sunday in the final seconds of a game in which the Warriors were leading by 22 points.

Though McGee and the Warriors generally defended the shot, Jennings, who was assessed with a flagrant-1 foul for purposefully shoving McGee on the play, claimed McGee and the Warriors were “trying to embarrass” the Wizards.

Turns out, the Wizards under similar circumstances have not exactly been guilt-free.

“It was just crazy how I was getting hella mentions on Twitter of how they did the same thing this season,” McGee said at Tuesday morning at shootaround.

Jennings himself fired up a 3-pointer with the Wizards leading the Nets by 23 (120-97) inside the final five minutes of a game on March 24 at Verizon Center. In that same game, Trey Burke launched one in the final seconds, as McGee did.

The Wizards took a 129-108 victory.

More than two months earlier, on Jan. 16, Wizards forward Tomas Satoransky jacked up a 3 with eight seconds remaining in a 120-101 rout of the Trail Blazers at Verizon Center.

As McGee discovered late Sunday, fans have long memories. And, moreover, few misdeeds have any chance of escaping the unblinking eyes of social media.

Knicks PG Jennings: Draymond Green's a Hall of Fame player

Knicks PG Jennings: Draymond Green's a Hall of Fame player

As LeBron James and Hall of Fame player and current analyst Charles Barkley found themselves in their own criticisms of each other recently, Warriors All-Star forward Draymond Green took James' side, along with other NBA players. 

Seeing current NBA players take James' side was no surprise to Barkley. "This new generation, they all stick together, they all play together, they’re all AAU babies," Barkley said Wednesday on "Mike and Mike." 

To Knicks point guard Brandon Jennings, the "AAU babies" comment was pure comedy. Who Barkley specifically said it about though, Dwyane Wade and Green, happen to be two future Hall of Famers in Jennings' eyes.

Currently in his fifth NBA season with the Warriors, Green has averaged 9.0 points, 6.7 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game for his career. The 26-year-old is a two-time All-Star, two-time All-Defense First Team and made the All-NBA Second Team last season. 

Through 49 games of the 2016-17 season, Green is scoring 10.7 points per game while grabbing 8.4 rebounds and dishing out 7.3 assists per game. He is tied with Kevin Durant for the team lead in rebounds and leads the Warriors in assists per game, beating out Stephen Curry (6.4 assists per game).

Speaking on his podcast "Dray Day," Green spoke out about James' comments to Barkley. 

“I’m all for destroying Barkley,” Green said. “You know, Barkley talk a lot. A whole lot for a guy who has not won a championship."
