I've been waiting for something like this to come out, but I'm not sure this is
exactly what I was looking for. What I want is a DVD full of highlights from
his college games, mostly the key ones, including interviews before and after
key games with the voice of Greg Wrubell calling the game in the background
while showing the clips. I'd be interested to know if the DVD is like that.
I am a Ute fan who rooted for Jimmer hard last year. It was fun. Jimmer
captivated the nation.As for Jimmer and the NBA. I still root for
him to succeed, but I don' think he will be an NBA star. Hopefully, Jimmer can
fill a role and will find his niche with the Kings or some other organization.
I understand the love affair with Jimmer, but I think many of his
fans need to be realistic about his NBA status.The Jazz were smart
not to draft Jimmer despite what many wanted in that regard. As great as things
were in college for Jimmer, the NBA is a different animal. If Jimmer
was in a Jazz uniform and things weren't going well for him, many fans would
blame Corbin or the team for Jimmer not thriving. That's to much pressure for an
organization to take on (a home town hero who the community thinks is better
than he is). Fans yelling for Jimmer to come back in at the end of
the game the other night at Energy Solutions Arena was embarrassing for me as a
The U never put out a DVD about Bogut. Jimmer is how he is because of the
typical Cougar nation hype.Thou shalt not worship any graven image
ya'all.I agree with Johnson. Puh-lease!!!
So as to not be misunderstood as one who thinks Jimmer is Superman, allow me
state my position. I personally don't think Jimmer will be a superstar in the
NBA but he could make a living for a number of years and do well if he can
improve in a few areas. However, he was an excellent college basketball player
and accumulated a long list of fantastic plays, shots, etc that were amazing.
Regardless of the team or the defender, they couldn't stop him.
I bought it and watched already!!!!!
I have a terrible feeling I'll be getting one of these DVD's for fathers
day...after Deseret Book tosses them into the Bargain Bin.
Thanks for the bitter comments Ute fans....typical and so predictable
