We want Jimmer! We want Jimmer! We want Jimmer!.......

Hope they leak the results, so we can all know how Kemba and Jimmer fared.

Riverton, UT

This is one workout that Kemba Walker will skip.

Jimmer is the best player in the draft. Hope the Jazz take him and let him shoot it everytime he touches it, just like he did at BYU.

Bountiful, UT

Shooting every time he touches barely got the Cougs to the Sweet 16. It wouldn't even get the Jazz to the playoffs. But I do like Jimmer.

Sweet! Talk about hype! Go Jimmer.

When did Jimmer become 6'3"?

I wish these NBA teams would get someone who knows how to evaluate athleticism and NBA talent. My neighbor (who is an expert because he watches ESPN all the time) says Jimmer Fredette isn't good enough to be in the NBA. Something about not having enough tattoos?

Anyway, it is so disappointing everyone is getting their hopes up.

Jimmer is 6'3? He's on some pretty hefty juice if that is the case.

Draper, UT

James Fredette is up to 6'3"? Wow! I guess he's wearing 2.25" heels.

Quit being a Cougar fan and stick to the facts.

Here's the big question:
Walker has been projected to go to #3.
If Fredette outperforms Walker, does #3 sound farfetched?

Re Clovis:
The Jimmer obsessed Utah media always exaggerates Jimmer's exploits, I'm surprised they only added 1 inch.

This should be a great work out though, if Kemba or Jimmer shows extremely well the Jazz might have to consider trading down to get one at 6 or so.

In last year's "super workout" Hayward impressed enough for the Jazz to get him even though most people had him projected 12-20. I think these types of workouts matter.

I don't think anyone knows what KOC is thinking, he's probably the most tight lipped GM in the league. If he does have something up his sleeve we won't find out until it becomes official.

Just feels good to type "J I M M E R" again. The Jazz won't get him if they wait til #12. Watch for them packaging both of their picks for a big guy (like Greg Monroe on the pistons) and a single-digit pick. Jazz get Jimmer and another young player with a year or two of experience.

How about the jazz send both picks and Okur to Milwaukee for Bogut and the Bucks #10 to get Jimmer.

West Jordan, UT

Lets see if Kemba actually shows up this time, or if he bows out like he did for the Sacramento Kings. I am sure his agent is telling him not to go head to head against Jimmer.

"I am sure his agent is telling him not to go head to head against Jimmer."

Do you know his agent?

Orem, UT

The Jazz will get a glimmer of the simmer that's in Jimmer while the Walker will grow dimmer so I hope they take the Jimmer. Lame but I couldn't resist.

Provo, UT

Finally Jimmer gets to workout against Walker who, along with Knight, is one of only TWO PG's rated higher than Fredette...too bad it took this long for it to happen!

I have no clue why Kemba, with all the positive attention he's had, would risk it by going up against Jimmer--but hey, now we'll finally know once and for all what would've happened if BYU played UConn.

If Jimmer's workout defense has been as adequate as everyone says, and if he can hold his own against a quick guy like Kemba, he'll have a good and long NBA career ahead of him.

Provo, UT

Love to see Kemba kick some butt. A true winner who carried his team to the ncaa championship. The jazz should get Kemba at the 3 and one of the foreign bigs at the 12. But I don't mind if they trade out of the 12. After the top 5 there just isn't many good players out there in this draft. Make it happen KOC.

Tokyo, Japan

if Jimmer owns Kemba...he'd be drafted at 3...
