    "Jimmer is just another of a long line of college players who don't have skills at the next level."

    That remains to be seen. Jimmer certainly doesn't have the skill set to be successful in the chaotic, one-on-one style of "offense" that the Kings run.

    2 points, 3 turnovers, 1 assist

    I can't believe nobody could influence Jimmer to attempt to model his NBA game after Nash and Stockton as a point guard distributor and not as a scoring #2 guard. He doesn't have the skill set to be a scoring #2 in the NBA but does have the skills to run point and manage the team.

    Maybe we should have a popularity contest: Chris B vs Jimmer?

    Let's see, who should we vote for?

    Should we vote for somebody that has skills, actually competed in intercollegiate athletics, take his chances in the arena, always has a great attitude, gets along with others, never puts others down?

    That sounds good...let's do it!

    Here's one Ute Fan who wishes nothing but success for Jimmer; however, I am glad he's gone from BYU to the NBA.

    Jimmer's just a bad fit for Sacramento. In order to excel, he needs to be in a more structured playing environment; instead of the helter skelter style they play in Sacramento.

    Says the guy who is proud to call Duckhunter one of his own.

    Same type guy as Chris B., different color shirt.

    "And once again we will have to listen to "classless" ute fan "boo" him everytime he touches the ball."

    Actually, Utah Jazz fans booing Jimmer is just more evidence of the large number of "Utah fans" who are really just BYU haters. Most of those Utah Jazz fans booing Jimmer haven't stepped foot in the HC in years.

    From the vast sea of empty red chairs in the HC, it appears that even a train wreck can't hold the attention of Utah fans forever.

    And once again we will have to listen to "classless" ute fan "boo" him everytime he touches the ball. How many times was Damian Lillard "booed" last week?? If their "booing" you, you must be doing something right. Grow up ute fan.

    I see that Jimmer's last game in the Huntsman is still giving you nightmares.

    However, you have captured the essence of Utah basketball very well.

    "Watching [Utah basketball] is kind of like a train wreck that you know is happening over and over again. Its ugly and tough to watch, but somehow you just can't look away, as painful as it is."

    The train wreck on the hill continues.
