Jimmer a busy in Chicago?I'm shocked. We just need
to free Jimmer
Jimmer laid 47 on the Utes home floor....otherwise known as the days of 47 to
sore loser ute fans like Chris b.
Oh no, the Bulls are done for the season and jammer is out of a job.
Problem with Jimmer is he is only a one tool player (to use baseball terms). Top
ten shooter in the NBA but that is where his success ends. The issue is that he
needs more quality playing time against quality opposition in order to improve
the weak areas of his game but that becomes a catch 22 as any team he is on
needs a more well rounded player in the game against those quality opponents for
a better chance at winning. He is kind of in a pickle in those regards. If he
can go to a team with the goal of 'tanking' (which I don't
condone) they can leave him in there with no worries about losing or winning and
he MIGHT, and I repeat, MIGHT improve. Unfortunately that is his best chance at
salvaging his career.
Tajemnica, just because regular season/postseason games are all that the fans
see doesn't mean that's the only experience against quality
competition guys are getting. Guys that aren't starters get all the minutes
in summer league games, they play against the top rotation guys in practice
everyday, participate in shootarounds, etc. There is no vast conspiracy against
poor Jimmer, if he gave a team the best chance to win by playing a lot of
minutes, he'd be getting them. If there was, more people than just BYU fans
would be bringing awareness to it.Also, really improving a
guy's game doesn't happen in the 48 minutes of each game, it happens
over the offseason. We see it every year with emerging players, or already great
players with emerging skills, like Kobe spending an offseason working post moves
with Olajuwon, or LeBron developing a jumpshot early in his career or learning
to score with his left hand later in his career. The onus is on Jimmer to round
out his game to contribute more than shooting ability, not coaches to
arbitrarily play him to see if it ever happens.
