Jimmer is one of the most overrated players in the history of basketball. He
can't defend. He is a decent shooter, but that's it. If he has a headache he
sits out three weeks. He'll come back for sure and with the new
signees, look for ute domination this year.
Chris - you troll, get out of here.Jimmer is a very good player on a
very good team - his drives and scoop shots around big guys are amazing. Clearly
he can shoot the lights out. He has torched some pretty good programs and
players despite the extra attention their D gives him. NBA ready...I think not.
We'll see how next year goes for him.
Hey Chris, Utah basketball!!! LOL!!! Wow, that was the shortest debate I've ever
been a part of.
I like the guy in all aspects, but his ball handling is really suspect; he'll
get stripped several times a game if he doesn't really improve on protecting the
ball - that NCAA game wasn't an abberation - there are tons of guys as quick as
the guy who picked him clean several times. I called it several months ago;
Ainge will make sure this kid eastern boy gets a look see at the celtics...
I don't see him as a 1st round choice, and the dollars that go with it, but he
can make it.
Saturdays headline, "Jimmer returns to BYU for senior year!"The only
reason he's getting looked at by the Celtic's is..... ummmm.... let me
guess..... Danny Ainge? Go figure?How amusing, Andre Miller is
quietly having a career in the NBA, 2005 #1 Draft Pick Andrew Bogut helped the
Bucks make the playoffs. But the only news coming out of the BYU camp is...
Danny Ainge throwing a towel in the air while a Cavs player was shooting a free
throw in game 2.Talk about a classy move, from a classy "ex" player,
now having to apologize for his "CLASSLESS" act. Doesn't this sound
all to familiar Cougar fan? And before you go off about Danny Ainge being a
Champion in '84 and '86 (like HE led the Celtics those years), Larry Bird, Kevin
McHale and Robert Parish get more credit for those Championships then Ainge ever
will, just relax. It's just a game.
Eyepatch is right. The Utes are classy. I mean who really cares about Drca
tripping that loser from Oklahoma. Who cares about Henderson and his cheap shot
to Emery. They deserved it.Go Utes
LOL!If there’s a stereotype of the "typical BYU athlete"
it’s Danny Ainge.
You are right hedgehog, Ainge is a loser, what has he done? Who cares if he was
first team All-American in college and at the same time made it to the major
leagues in baseball while still in college. Who cares if he has a couple of NBA
titles, who cares if late his career he took his hometown Trailblazers to the
NBA finals, who cares if he played 14 years in the NBA. What has he done lately?
I mean besides winning the NBA executive of the year.
hedgehog, you mean the guy that was drafted into MLB, won multiple NBA
championships and is basically a scratch golfer?On the other hand,
when I think of the typical Utah athlete, I think about someone like Lance Rice
or Brett Elliot. Remember when Elliot tried to dive through like 4 guys at Texas
A&M and busted his hand? LOL!!! Remember when Bogut tried to do a one arm
handstand? LOL!!! Silly Utes!
Lol! The last 4 posts are the reason I read these articles. How did that taste?
Re: hedgehogLOL! If there's a stereotype of the "typical
BYU hater" it's hedgehog.
Note to all BYU-hating posters out there: Please don't try and sound smart and
be persuasive with your arguments about basketball by adding "look for ute
domination this year"! You just lose all credibility right there! How can anyone
take you seriously?Re: Chris B,Hyperbole much?
I thought this article was about Fredette? Trollers are probably Laker fans.
re: eyepatchYou're kidding right? The NBA is upset
because someone threw a towel in the air while a player was shooting a free
throw.That's got to be one of the most upsportmanslike things ever
to occur in professional sports.Imagine, someone trying to distract
a free throw shooter.Outrageous!
"hedgehog, you mean the guy that was drafted into MLB, won multiple NBA
championships and is basically a scratch golfer?"No I mean the
insufferable crybaby and poor sport. A guy who was disliked by almost all other
NBA players and fans. That’s what I mean fibbler, K?
I see the high school kids are out in force trying to talk smack. Keep
practicing--someday you'll get the hang of it.
BYU needs Fredette to stay. There is no way they want to rebuild in both sports
after all the smack they have talked this year. At Utah, we are used
to players leaving early.
UteMan, you are more right than you know. Half of your bball team leaving is
something you'll have to get used to as long as you have that clown for a
coach.Also, as far as weather Jimmer leaves early or not, BYU will
beat Utah twice whether he stays or goes so no one is really worried about that.
Jimmer is working out for the Knicks. They like him a lot it sounds like. They
also have 2 early 2nd round picks. If Jimmer sees a chance of leaving and making
a decent living, I think he might jump on that. We'll see. It certainly leaves a
leadership spot that the cougars will need to fill. Who will step up?
RE: FiddlerFredette is the key to BYU having a successful season
next year. If you don't realize it, you are blind to the reasons you had
success last 2 years. You really think it will be easy to replace him with
Lloyd being run out of town and Hawes leaving on a mission? Without Lloyd's
play late in the year, you would not have beat Florida, you lose 7-10 more games
this year without Fredette's play. BYU had a good team last
year, but replacing these players will be no easy task. Utah on the other hand
is glad to be replacing players they lost regardless of the reason...Graduation,
lack of playing time, cancer in the locker room etc. We will see how it all
pans out but enjoy your success while it lasts.
