Wizards' Jennings: 'I didn't really understand the triangle' with Knicks
After signing a one-year deal with the Knicks last summer, Jennings was initially excited about playing for New York, but admits that losing quickly began to take a toll as the weeks progressed.
"It was a dream come true for me to be a Knick and to play in Madison Square Garden every night," Jennings told Stefan Bondy of The New York Daily News. "It was just too much going on behind the scenes that I didn't understand."
The 6-foot-1 guard became increasingly frustrated with the Knicks' offensive approach, saying he never fully grasped the triangle during his time in The Big Apple.
"I think what just happened was they were just going in a different direction. I wanted to play fast. I didn't really understand the triangle," Jennings said. "I think that was my biggest thing. I really didn't understand it. I'm not saying it doesn't work. I just felt like the way the game is being played today, I just felt like you got to score. You got to score. You got to get up shots. When I came to New York, I wanted to put on a show every night. I wanted to put up shots with nice passes and things like that. So I guess it just wasn't the right timing."
Jennings added the constant changes on offense became a challenge, noting the team's strategy often changed from game to game.
"It was just different. Every day it was just something different," Jennings said. "It was just like, if we could just stick to what we could do, we'll be fine. So at times, you'd just come into practice and you didn't know what was going on."
