Allan Ray Mentoring Jennings in Italy

Here's an interesting piece from ESPN The Magazine about Brandon Jennings' transition from high school to professional ball in Italy.  The 18-year-old Jennings is playing for Lottomatica Virtus Roma, which is the same team Allan Ray plays for, and A-Ray is helping the young point guard both on and off the court. 

After Jennings was thrown out of the gym by his coach for dogging it during practice"After practice, Allan Ray, the former Villanova star who is in his second year with Virtus Roma, gave Jennings a pep talk. Ray got kicked out of several practices last season. "

"Jennings leaves the crib for three things: basketball, food and visiting those famed Italian landmarks—Gucci, Prada and Versace. He usually hits those hot spots with the 24-year-old Ray"
