So he's already been crowned? :D
Sorry, couldn't resist with that headline.
Congrats Jimmer.

That $2 million will be the best money the Kings ever spend. They'll make that much back in jerseys. Just got my tickets to the Jazz/Kings game in February. If he played for the Jazz, I'd have season tickets. Just sayin'

Why do veterans feel the need to haze other millionaires simply because they are rookies? Does that happen in any other industry outside of sports? Do new accountants get hazed by the CEO or COO? Do junior lawyers get hazed by senior lawyers with the firm? I think it is a silly tradition that needs to stop... It is cool in fraternities and sororities but that is where it should end. I guess the two most guilty of it are athletes and military guys.... But at least the military guys have reduced it significantly.


Fantastic Jimmer, We love it. Jimmer fans everywhere support you and your pursuit of success and happiness this coming season in the NBA. Seasons greetings to all Jimmerfans.

For the rookies, this is part of working your way up the ladder so to speak. Much the same at all other jobs and professions. It's not hazing, it's you get the the new guy treatment. I'm sure Jimmer is fine with it. I'm sure there are a few first year lawyers and accountants who have been told to get the coffee.
