The famous Drew League opened its gym to NBA players on Saturday and it marked the first day that the pro's could showcase their talents to admiring fans and Brandon Jennings lit up proceedings with a dazzling 57 point effort.

Not only did the Pistons point guard easily muster 57 points on Saturday but he followed up that performance by effortlessly dropping another 50 points in Sunday's scheduled action.

It seems as though Jennings has started off white-hot in his pre-season pick up games and the difference in class is evident for fans to applaud as the point guard continues his grind in the Drew League.

Jennings suited up for 'The Clozers' on Saturday and faced off against fellow NBA player Derrick Williams of the Sacramento Kings who represented the 'Sole Clinics' in the opening ball game of the league.

Jennings stole the show in a comfortable 107-84 win for the Clozers and the 24-year-old was awarded with the performance of the game as selected by the Drew League, they announced the proceedings on twitter.

The Drew League tweeted: "The Clozers defeat SoleClinics 107-84, on the back of @BrandonJennings' 57 pts, 6 rebs and 5 asts. Yeah, he is the Top Performer. #thedrew"

The Compton native is one of many players who annually compete in the prestigious pick-up basketball tournament, other star names include Kevin Durant and James Harden.

Jennings is known as somewhat of a revolutionary figure in today's NBA, when the professional ranks made the decision to ban high school prospects from jumping straight to the league without any College experience, Jennings made an almost unheard of decision by heading to Europe to play ball.

After spending one year playing professionally in Europe and foregoing College, Jennings was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks with the 10th pick in the 2009 NBA draft.

Since Milwaukee, the 6 ft 1 inch point guard has moved on to the Detroit Pistons franchise and averaged 15.5 points per game along with 7.6 rebounds per game in his first season with his new team.

Not only were the crowds who came to watch Jennings at the Drew League enthralled by his performance, he seemed to be rather happy with his outing and celebrated with a glass of the world famous 'Drew Aid'.

He tweeted saying: "Shout out to that #DrewAid Punch. Omgggggggg!!! @DrewLeague what's in that man?"
