DeMar DeRozan and Brandon Jennings met as 10-year-old basketball players in California.

Today, both are young, potential stars in the NBA.

The pair appreciate having a peer they have been friends with for ages to relate to.

"Man it's great, it's awesome," Jennings said before his Milwaukee Bucks took on DeRozan's Raptors on Wednesday night.

"It's like how they do in the movies when you're boys and everybody talks about what they're going to be when they grow up.

"We're kind of living that right now. Living our dreams."
