Jimmer is one of the most overrated players in the history of basketball. He can't defend. He is a decent shooter, but that's it. If he has a headache he sits out three weeks.

He'll come back for sure and with the new signees, look for ute domination this year.

Madden

Chris - you troll, get out of here.

Jimmer is a very good player on a very good team - his drives and scoop shots around big guys are amazing. Clearly he can shoot the lights out. He has torched some pretty good programs and players despite the extra attention their D gives him. NBA ready...I think not. We'll see how next year goes for him.

Hey Chris, Utah basketball!!! LOL!!! Wow, that was the shortest debate I've ever been a part of.

I like the guy in all aspects, but his ball handling is really suspect; he'll get stripped several times a game if he doesn't really improve on protecting the ball - that NCAA game wasn't an abberation - there are tons of guys as quick as the guy who picked him clean several times. I called it several months ago; Ainge will make sure this kid eastern boy gets a look see at the celtics... I don't see him as a 1st round choice, and the dollars that go with it, but he can make it.

THEeyepatch

Saturdays headline, "Jimmer returns to BYU for senior year!"

The only reason he's getting looked at by the Celtic's is..... ummmm.... let me guess..... Danny Ainge? Go figure?

How amusing, Andre Miller is quietly having a career in the NBA, 2005 #1 Draft Pick Andrew Bogut helped the Bucks make the playoffs. But the only news coming out of the BYU camp is... Danny Ainge throwing a towel in the air while a Cavs player was shooting a free throw in game 2.

Talk about a classy move, from a classy "ex" player, now having to apologize for his "CLASSLESS" act.

Doesn't this sound all to familiar Cougar fan? And before you go off about Danny Ainge being a Champion in '84 and '86 (like HE led the Celtics those years), Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish get more credit for those Championships then Ainge ever will, just relax. It's just a game.

GoUTES

Eyepatch is right. The Utes are classy. I mean who really cares about Drca tripping that loser from Oklahoma. Who cares about Henderson and his cheap shot to Emery. They deserved it.

Go Utes

LOL!

If there’s a stereotype of the "typical BYU athlete" it’s Danny Ainge.

GoUTES

You are right hedgehog, Ainge is a loser, what has he done? Who cares if he was first team All-American in college and at the same time made it to the major leagues in baseball while still in college. Who cares if he has a couple of NBA titles, who cares if late his career he took his hometown Trailblazers to the NBA finals, who cares if he played 14 years in the NBA. What has he done lately? I mean besides winning the NBA executive of the year.

Fiddler

hedgehog, you mean the guy that was drafted into MLB, won multiple NBA championships and is basically a scratch golfer?

On the other hand, when I think of the typical Utah athlete, I think about someone like Lance Rice or Brett Elliot. Remember when Elliot tried to dive through like 4 guys at Texas A&M and busted his hand? LOL!!! Remember when Bogut tried to do a one arm handstand? LOL!!! Silly Utes!

Lol! The last 4 posts are the reason I read these articles. How did that taste?

Note to all BYU-hating posters out there: Please don't try and sound smart and be persuasive with your arguments about basketball by adding "look for ute domination this year"! You just lose all credibility right there! How can anyone take you seriously?

Re: Chris B,
Hyperbole much?

I thought this article was about Fredette? Trollers are probably Laker fans.

re: eyepatch

You're kidding right?

The NBA is upset because someone threw a towel in the air while a player was shooting a free throw.

That's got to be one of the most upsportmanslike things ever to occur in professional sports.

Imagine, someone trying to distract a free throw shooter.

Outrageous!

hedgehog

"hedgehog, you mean the guy that was drafted into MLB, won multiple NBA championships and is basically a scratch golfer?"

No I mean the insufferable crybaby and poor sport. A guy who was disliked by almost all other NBA players and fans. That’s what I mean fibbler, K?

I see the high school kids are out in force trying to talk smack. Keep practicing--someday you'll get the hang of it.

UteMan

BYU needs Fredette to stay. There is no way they want to rebuild in both sports after all the smack they have talked this year.

At Utah, we are used to players leaving early.

Fiddler

UteMan, you are more right than you know. Half of your bball team leaving is something you'll have to get used to as long as you have that clown for a coach.

Also, as far as weather Jimmer leaves early or not, BYU will beat Utah twice whether he stays or goes so no one is really worried about that.

TexasAggie

Jimmer is working out for the Knicks. They like him a lot it sounds like. They also have 2 early 2nd round picks. If Jimmer sees a chance of leaving and making a decent living, I think he might jump on that. We'll see. It certainly leaves a leadership spot that the cougars will need to fill. Who will step up?
