Rock On: Learning from Jimmer

Published: Monday, May 19 2014 6:07 p.m. MDT


If the Sacramento Kings seemed clueless as to what to do with Jimmer Fredette, consider this: they are now seeking public input on their June draft pick.

In a promotion the team is calling Draft 3.0, fans are encouraged to share their own analytics and rank their draft preferences. In return, two winners will be “considered” for admission to the draft room on June 26.

Here is Rock On’s sole analytic, which the Kings can take to the bank: Don’t draft a 3-point scorer unless you plan to use him.

Yes, Brad is correct. The Kings simply overlooked all of the physical tools Jimmer has, the lockdown defender, the ball-handling magician and the uncanny passer when they continually left him on the bench during his time in Sacramento. And, it appears the Bulls are doing the same thing. What is wrong with these coaches, can't they see they are letting a sure fire Hall-of-Famer go to waste by not playing the college basketball player of the year?
