Sacramento Bees, not Milwaukee Bucks.

Beverly Hills, CA

Yeah clearly his track record in the last couple NCAA tournaments says he can't play in the NBA... Even against Florida he was getting his shots off just fine he just had a bad night. Jimmer will do fine in the NBA. Keep doubting him if you want.

Hayden, ID

Consenous national college player of the year, led the nation in scoring, consensus all American, broke scoring records of the MWC and BYU, has more awards than I have room to list here and STILL some of you can't believe Jimmer can play basketball? Most of you couldn't play on a Jr. High and you feel qualified to judge Jimmer? Why is it that some people who are failures are irritated by those who succeed?

Tremonton, UT

Look at the bright side maybe he can wear # 32 ..

This is the perfect team for Jimmer to shine. He will find himself at the starting point guard spot, and will shine. Yet again he will prove the doubters wrong.

"Arrival of Jimmer Fredette in Sacramento creates a buzz" but the article is about Honeycutt & Thomas. How many readers have come to this article wanting to read more about Jimmer? I'm sure Honeycutt & Thomas are great players but if I had wanted to read about them, I would have found another article.

Jimmer will do well. He does not have the pressure of the past on him and can be a part of a team where he can play fewer minutes and does not have to score so much. It is disgraceful that some folks would wish this fine young man ill. I always want good people to do well...we don't have enough of them. Jimmer is excitment.

Congratulations to Jimmer, Sac. will be a good team for him to get started with, with Sac. trading Udric , that leaves the starting point guard open for Jimmer to step in and start. I'm not sure that will happen right at the start but it could, it looks like the table is set so that could happen. It would be great if it did. Go get'm Jimmer, prove you can be a pass first point.

Congratulations for Jimmer,have fun best of luck out there!

Ann Arbor, MI

hmmm, Just don't read Espn ( a partner..right?) today. They article running today views SAC town as the biggest loser in yesterdays draft.

Mesquite, NV

It seems like their are a lot of opinions out there, so I'll make a prediction.
Jimmer will be fine. People are making too much of his height. Most of his college career he was having to shed two or three guys under the basket and still put it in. I don't know if San Diego State, Utah, New Mexico or Arizona are believers, but they should be. I would not bet against him. Besides skill, he has heart. You don't teach that. There are many who have talent that don't succeed. I am betting on Jimmer. I have watched too much of him to bet against him.

Hey deseret news, please tell us what Jimmer had for dinner. Also, does he put high octane gas in his car? What color socks are his favorite? Does he like crab cakes?

Orem, Utah

Jimmer in college: POY
Jimmer in NBA: ROY
Bank it!

You have to be impressed that in the midst of the endless discussion of Jimmer's "limitations" he remained non-defensive.

Pocatello, ID

Well, for people like myself who don't give a rat's rear about pro basketball, it does provide a bit of a look inside the NBA when they hire a cool dude like Jimmer Fredette. How cool is that name? And to be born with it! That's almost as cool as Broncho Mendenhall being a coach. Some names just scream for that job.

I think the biggest loser is michigan and the trolls that post from there

SAGINAW, Michigan

Jimmer will be a good fit on the Kings. Tyreke is a great #2 and DeMarcus is a scoring big. They should improve this year. They just need a couple more quality players.

"They article running today views SAC town as the biggest loser in yesterdays draft."

Maybe, just once in awhile, you could accurately report on a BYU-related article. None of the Sacramento critics is connected with ESPN. They're all TrueHoop Network writers: Hayes Davenport, Celtics Hub; Dan Feldman, PistonPowered; and Mark Haubner, The Painted Area.

But, I can see why you admire them so much. They're just as clueless about Jimmer's NBA career, as a certain prickly critter from the upper midwest has proven to be about Jimmer's college career.
