Jimmer was the consensus Player of the Year in college basketball. A lot of people thought he was more than just a "good college player." Like it or not, Jimmer was an icon and will be a good pro player. There may never be another john Stockton, but you're right, not even Steve Kerr thinks Jimmer is a Steve Kerr. Kerr thinks he's much better.


Mildred in Fillmore "40 points"? on how many shots? How many turn overs? How many points surrendered trying to defend the six foot seven guard he's defending? You're dreaming. Don't you think an NBA team would have exposed his talents by now? These owners know what they have. The word on Jimmer was that he had a very difficult time playing within a structured offense. BYU let him run wild, shooting more than half of the teams total shots. Kobe maybe, but even LaBron and the others must play within there teams given offense or it doesn't work. Now add in Jimmers lack of size and ball handling capabilities and you have a kid that will struggle with NBA talent. This isn't BYU, and they are playing the best and biggest every night. Jimmer can shoot, there isn't anyone that doesn't agree with that. There are many more requirements to play in the NBA.
