After discussing his 40-points a game average and what happened when he broke a scoring record held by Yao Ming, one segment of the interview showed Fredette making croissants with a Mormon family.
"There is a Mormon community here," Fredette said in the video. "It's great to be able to have that, to have people I know and can meet and have something in common with."
After asking Fredette about his future in basketball, the reporter concludes with a compliment.
"Well Jimmer Fredette, you are quite possibly the nicest man I have met in basketball," the reporter said in a British accent.
