    I completely agree idablu. Cousins, Evans and Jimmer all wanted to be the star. Evans is a legitimate star, Cousins is immature and Jimmer is just not good enough at this point.

    This was the first time I have seen Sacramento play this year. What struck me most was how selfish each of the players were . . .including--I hate to say it--Jimmer. There is definitely some talent on the Kings, but until they show some teamwork and less selfishness, they'll continue to lose.

    "Most said he would never make it in the NBA."
    Maybe some disgruntled Utah fans said that, but "most"?
    You don't get picked 7th in the draft if most think you won't make it.

    Basically, the Kings don't need Fredette to be Jimmer. Once the ball is fed inside, they have enough talent to put it in the hoop. They don't need to kick it outside. Thomas was lighting up the 3's. Definitely glad the Kings coach bowed to the crowd chanting "Jimmer" and didn't put the ball in the hot hand of Thomas.

    Jazz are actually lucky it was Fredette with the chance for the last shot. Isaiah Thomas was the one who pulled the Kings back in it and, with how hot he was, I think in any other venue would have been the one to take that shot in those circumstances. Glad it wasn't him, glad the Jazz got the W and got a good laugh over the airball.

    Sorry BYU fans but Jimmer is not going to last long in the NBA!!! Should have shipped him to Provo today, they sure could have used him there!!

    Well Jimmer is still BIG time in my book. Most said he would never make it in the NBA. He did and that's history. Glad the Jazz won.

    Good luck Jimmer.

    How about that Jazz. Lucky, lucky, lucky. Playing one of the worse teams in the league I would have hoped they would have played much better. Lucky, lucky, lucky that Juimmer missed that last shot.

    Don't worry Jimmer, you will always be welcome in Utah either as a player or H.S. coach sometime in the future...
