Video: Brandon Jennings gets slapped by former NBA player Mike Taylor at Drew League

Tuesday August 20th, 2013

Unofficial summer league play is chock full of showmanship, and tempers can flare a bit as a result of high-level, highly confident athletes trying to upstage one another. Such was the case Monday when former NBA player Mike Taylor -- who last played for the Clippers in 2009 -- taunted the Pistons' Brandon Jennings after a made basket in a Drew League game. It was a quick face-off that was broken up before anything could escalate, but Taylor swung at Jennings and slapped him in the face before the two were separated.

Taylor was ejected, while Jennings -- to his credit, I suppose -- didn't really pursue the point.
