If only Jimmer Fredette can do in the NBA what he did in college, he will be a sensation.

That's how a lot of basketball fans viewed things a couple of years ago.

But actually, that plan isn't looking so good. The Jimmer has been doing what he did in college — and it hasn't worked with the Sacramento Kings. Those concerns about his ability to play the point? His defense?

They were real.

But don't trust us. Check out this assessment by an NBA scout, who says Fredette is destined for a career in Europe.

"Jimmer Fredette will be in Europe in a year or two. He has no future in the league. None. He can't create his own shot, he has a hard time coming off screens for a shot and he's not a point guard."
