As the mother of JimR (the original "Jimmer" as documented in my
journal from 1973) a rose by any other name will smell as sweet. We all have
something to give and contribute. Our JimR is the best son, brother, friend,
husband, and dad ever, and a true blue Cougar fan! We have loved this season of
celebrating and cheering for the "Jimmmer's" in our lives; our JimR
Petty and Jimmer Fredette. Go BYU and Jimmer!
Can't wait to watch the MWC tournament and actually watch Jimmer play. All the pressure is off now. BYU won the MWC and they don't feel like
they need to win the MWC tournament to prove anything (a tournament that I
personally think is a total joke since every game... every year... is a home
game for UNLV). But I think BYU is going to play very relaxed (which may give
us a chance to see Jimmer at his best). The NCAA tournament may not
be so relaxed for BYU. They have a lot they need to prove there.
I love BYU and Jimmer... but am I the only one tired of hearing about Jimmer
every day? It's almost as bad as the daily Charlie Sheen articles!I
guess I'm just Jimmer'd out.Love to watch him play... just tired of
all the talk.
Is Jake Heaps a ball hog for passing the ball more than anyone else on the team?
No.Like Heaps, Jimmer starts with the ball. Also like Heaps, Jimmer
takes so many shots because that's the style of the offense. He can make long
jumpers, short jumpers, crazy layups, or draw contact, which results in free
throws for a 90% free throw shooter. Defenses cannot lay off of Jimmer. They
have to swarm him or get burned ... which allows other players to be open. For
as often as Jimmer does shoot, he does pass off more. That does not always add
to an assist, but he is looking for other players.
And can I be Hedger or Hogger?
Can I be Chrisser?
"Scott Brown doesnt quite capture the attention of the nation."Ever consider a senate run in massachusetts?
@7dawg: no, not jealous at all. I wish Jimmer all the best. I think the Jazz
will draft him for PR reasons, but I don't think his game will play well in the
NBA, and being a fan of teams and team-minded players, I find it difficult to
see a man celebrated for taking so many shots, especially when his game is off.
How many more shot attempts does he have over the next BYU player? I bet if you
ask some of his teammates off-the-record, they would admit that they don't like
playing with him. Excuse me if I don't like the carnival that is Jimmermania.
Let's see how BYU does in the tournament--they don't exactly have a good track
record.Oh by the way, better enjoy this year because next year
starts the obscurity of high school gyms and no name teams (other than
Gonzaga--for nostalgia and possibly St. Marys) in the West Coast Conference. I
kind of feel bad for the BB team getting thrown under the bus for BYU
Great article - I can totally relate - we have Jimmermania in our home - glad
I'm not the only one with a worried wife.
jealous much wildcat?
No it's not too late, just shoot the ball 30-40 times a game with a handful of
those attempts five feet past the half court and you are there.He's
a nice person, but I wouldn't like his style if I was a teammate of his, and yes
Damian Lillard is still the best potential NBA player in the state right now!Have a pleasant Sunday everyone.
