In Oakland last night TV color guy for the Warriors' Jim Barnett (former NBA
star), after watching him for the first two games, described Jimmer as "the
real deal". That was right after Jimmer buried one from 4' beyond the arc.
Do I remember some trolls up north last year predicting Jimmer's
demise in the NBA??
Steph Curry's ankle got jimmered.
Hope Rick Reilly sees this article.
Reilly needs to be bombarded with requests to pay up his offer of $5k to any
charity. In a follow up article, he made a promise to pay if Jimmer started
"any game" in his first year. Since he started the first preseason
game, I think that qualifies, but even if not, there is no way he won't start at
least ONE game this season.
Killer crossover? He almost got the ball stolen. Nice one, Jeff. Glad to see you
and the D-News are still beating this drum...
Tj (Jimmer brother) need to start working on his rap song "Crossover"
and he will rock.
I'm just as big a Jimmer fan as anyone, but let's not blame Curry's ankle injury
on his cross over. Curry has had problems with his ankle for a long time and
it's not like Jimmer blew by him. In fact, Curry poked the ball away.
@Tom in CAA couple of points:1. Jimmer hasn't played one
single game in the NBA yet. Not one. It's too early to call him a failure, but
it's also too early to call him a success. I bet you were calling Alex Smith an
NFL failure, and we saw how that worked out.2. Did you notice that,
despite having a great game in his first preseason game, that his team lost by
30 to Golden State (!). They allowed Golden State to put up 127 points. It
doesn't matter if you score 35 when the guy you're guarding scores 40. Wake me
up when Jimmer learns to play defense.
@ Brave Sir RobinDon't know what game you watched but Golden State
scored 107 to Sacramento 96. Jimmer scored 21, playing about three quarters.
It was hard to tell how many his man scored because none of the Sacramento
guards play much defense. Jimmer did appear to hold his own and score more than
his opponent. In a related story, Sacramento has two employees whose only job it
is to fill orders for Jimmer's jerseys. You'd better get used to watching him
because he will play more than "a single game in the NBA." And, I
don't know about Tom in CA, but I always thought Alex Smith would be successful
and am happy for him. He probably worked as hard at his game as Jimmer has on
Jimmer may have the best range of any collegiate player to ever come into the
NBA. Most of his 3 pointers were several feet outside the nba line. Coach has
said he can already see how he stretches the floor for all the other players,
buy a clue Brave Sir Robin.
Enough with the Jimmer haters he is one of the greatest bball players of all
time his work ethic is amazing and he has one of the prettiest shots around
there would not be any hating if Jimmer wore a Ute jersey through his collegiate
career give him the credit he deserves how well has Bogut done in the Nba not
that amazing I believe Jimmer will start the season and the Kings will more than
likely have a much better season than last year and once Jimmer returns to Utah
he will torch the Jazz with all those 3's face it the NBA is about to be
timid sir stormcrowGet over your BYU hatred; Jimmer is the real deal
and he's going to be a great NBA player.
Reminds me of the video on youtube called "Jimmer Fredette Court
Intruder" when they said "Jimmer Fredette breaks ankles with his
crossovers." I just chuckled when I read this article and the quote came to
my mind. Go Jimmer! LOVE Jimmer! :)
I hurt my ankle just watching it and ended up going to the E.R.
And the legend grows!
