Yes!!!!......Jimmer is the KING!

Sugar Land, TX

Great News. Congratulations. He will do a very good job.
Go Cougs!

Ann Arbor, MI

Deep sigh of relif....I can continue to be a Jazz fan!

Good luck to the Jimmer. I hope he does well.

Vancouver, BC

Thank goodness he's ending up in Sacramento! I think he would have been "stifled" in Utah......under a microscope.. and you just know the immature BYU-Utah bickering would just get worse with him around, especially during the inevitable early struggles to adapt.

Iowa City, IA

Wise move by the Kings.

Sandy, UT

Ugh, he couldn't at least go to another team I like.

I have a feeeeeeling you will be sneaking a lot of peeks at Sacramento games - deep down inside you are a Jimmer fan. Oh, and do I dare say you have been proven wrong once again on this one. 10th overall first round pick. You and Chris B are weeping in your corn flakes.

My guess Jimmer will be starting again in the fall. What say you??

I just became Kings Fan :)

Orange County, CA

Move the Kings to Anaheim!

Gilbert, AZ

Deep sigh of relief....I don't need to become a Jazz fan!

SLC, Utah

If H-hog is a Jazz fan, then I've been cheering for the wrong team for 20 years. That makes me want to be Kings fan more than them drafting Jimmer.

Cedar Hills, UT

Hedgie, if that all it would take for your to leave I am even more ticked we did not get the Jimmer.

The good news I am still a jazz fan because the didn't screw it up. But get ready he is going to drop 40 on us every night we play the kings.

Lake Elsinore, CA

Go Anaheim Royals!! Jimmer Time comes my way in 2012-13!

Ann Arbor, MI

I thought Sacramento folded the franchise a few years ago for little to no fan support? in California it's all about the Lakers.

Will the jimer be able to deal with a fanbase and media that could care less?

Where's Stockton ???
Bowling Green, OH

Hedgie....the Jazz don't even know where Ann Arbor is... let alone where your home is on the edge of the Great Black Swamp...and I don't think they really care that you're the only fan they have up there.

SLC, Utah

Kings are a terrible organization, too bad. What a joke, the Jazz had their chance and they chose to pass on Jimmer. Haven't bought a Jazz ticket since Jerry left, Jimmer would have made me buy season tickets. I won't buy a ticket to watch KOC's latest creation. I'll follow the Jimmer instead.

Orem, UT

Congrats Jimmer!

Your NBA dream is reality!

...and JT is the best sports agent on the planet; one for one in players selected in the Top 10 of the NBA draft!

Ann Arbor, MI

"Hedgie....the Jazz don't even know where Ann Arbor is."

Dude, your lucky no one on this board knows were Bowling Green is... but I do. You don't want me to let everyone in on your dirty little secret.. do you?

Bluffdale, Utah

Hedgie who cares... he will still be lighting the Jazz up every time he comes on the floor
