Who can blame him? It's been a long time since he's seen a court.

Hey Jimmar! Welcome to Utah. Be glad they didn't try to have you invest in a Ponzi scheme that is common in the state.

Another blotch on Utah business practices.

Better get his money from somewhere, since he won't be collecting a check from the Kings much longer.

Based on my long experience, do not do business deals with Utah based businesses where there is not immediate performance. They more often than not don't keep their promises. The stories I could tell, especially the more where there is the claim of being good members of the church. If that ever comes up in any context, get ready to be ripped off.

Sounds like Jimmer was a bust for Black Clover's marketing dept and they're trying to get out of a bad business deal. I think BC thought that Jimmer and his image would be much more popular than it really is. Unfortunately Jimmer didn't turn out to be the NBA player many thought. I doubt outside the confines of Sacramento, Utah Valley and upstate New York that any apparel associated with Jimmer is doing very well right now.

Maybe with the right team he could restore some of his image and rebuild some of his marketability, but not right now.

Ironmomo:

It doesn't matter how good a player Jimmer is or what they thought he would be, they owe him $$$ and they need to pay up. Also, some of us haven't given up on Jimmer's NBA career just yet, probably needs a different team or a different coach. But bottom line Black Clover, you need to pay up. The fact they haven't returned calls probably speaks volumes...

Zebulon,
The Kings picked up the option on Jimmer and his contract is guaranteed for next season. Also, the contract with Black Clover was not contingent on performance by Jimmer, but performance by Black Clover who failed to deliver.

A contract is a contract. Legal and binding. Jimmer needs to be paid. This is a no-brainer for anyone in business. Jimmer may not like the PR, but I back him 100%. Should he be traded from the kings (totally separate issues from what this story is about), I feel he'll have a much more fruitful NBA career...

At the end of this hearing the judge is going to bang the gavel and say "Jimmered"
