TheSportsAuthority has no authority!"Another sad, jealous
comment from a BYU hater."I am a BYU alum, and hardly a BYU
hater.Just a Jimmer hater.Deal with it.
@ Dennis1. Jimmer is married. He won't be going on a mission
anytime soon.2. Jimmer is making $2.5 million this year and his
contract is already guaranteed for next season because the Kings opted him in.
If he retires from the NBA, he will have made between $9 and $10 million in
salary, plus whatever he has made in endorsement money. He could retire and
live high on the hog with simple interest from a savings account. Jimmer is a
made man financially. He has no need to do anything more. 3. Jimmer
is a marketable product for NBA franchises. He will get another contract even
if it is as a third string guard on the end of the bench. That's pretty good fishing.
Jimmer is really living in a pipe dream thinking he's going to find real
success in the NBA. Nothing personal here, he's just the cut out for the
job. Were I advising him I'd get him on a Mission, make sure he has
his degree in place and with his BYU (celebrity) I think a good future with a
career in a Utah business would do him well.It's not time to fish,
it's time to cut bait!
How Utah fans can badmouth Jimmer's talent after he practically single
handedly destroyed Utah when he played them is beyond logic. You realize that
you haters who have zero objectivity, also have zero credibility.
@ Chris:If you put even a fraction of the time into objectively
following BYU sports than you do hating and disparaging anything BYU, you'd
know that there are several players from BYU in the past 30 years who have
played more years in the NBA than you have correct game predictions.Danny
Ainge is a player that comes to mind who was very successful. He probably has
more NBA title rings than Utah will have wins the rest of this season. People who criticize the success of others who make more in one year than they
do in a lifetime seem pretty petty and jealous.
@ Chris B:Yes, indeed, what a program. That basketball program at
BYU has totally dominated the Utes over this past decade (winning 90% of those
games) in a way that has been making Utah seem more like a Junior College
program.So you may want to stop and realize that the more you put
BYU's program down, the worse you are making your Utes look.
@ Chrissy B, and Not-so-Brave Sir Robin:You simply can't pass
up the temptation to badmouth anything or anyone associated to BYU. I'm
actually starting to feel a bit sorry for you guys with your perennial negative
mindsets. BTW: Chris... you predicted Jimmer wouldn't even
make the NBA. And as usual, you were wrong once again. At least Jimmer is trying
to improve his game. Too bad you can't do the same with your predictions.
Robin... The reason the Kings are the worst team in the league is
mostly because they have a coach who doesn't seem to know what he doing
most of the time. That is a more valid reason for Jimmer not playing a lot, as
opposed to your weak and unsubstantiated analogies.
The comments on this page say a lot more about the people making them, and the
peculiar pathologies of the region in which they live, than about the subject of
His new role will be riding the pine, hoping another guard has an injury, and
collecting a big fat pay-check most of us would be jealous off. Jimmer could
last a while in this league, but not as a player with many minutes. Jimmer your
future lies as a shooting coach at a junior college.
Our Utes will donminate this year in basketball and we for sure will have at
least 4 nba stars from our team this year with our powerful bcs program.
He will never make it in the NBA because he did not play at a bcs school like
the Utes which would have made him a three star in the nba.
His "career" has turned out, exactly as I said it would!Best
player at byu in 30 years, and perhaps ever, can't even make it off the
bench.What a program!LOL
The Kings are bad. Jimmer is worse. The Kings drafted him because they wanted
him to play. But he quickly proved to them that he's not good enough to
play on the NBA's worst team. Put it this way: The Kings are the worst
defensive team in the NBA, but Jimmer's defense is so bad that he
can't even crack the rotation. Who's fault is that, The Kings'
or Jimmer's? I suppose it's the Kings' fault for not being able
to see past the Jimmer hype machine when they wasted a draft pick on him.
@BYUalum if Jimmer was such a great player he would be PLAYING. Unlike certain
Federal Gov't jobs, the NBA is not a league where you get rewarded with
playing time based on seniority. If you want to be on the court, go out and
prove you have to be on the court. Something he has yet to do up to this point
in his career.Also, tread lightly Brandon Judd you're stealing
Gurney's bi-weekly go to column. That's no way to promote harmony in
Maybe the article should say Jimmer is looking for ROLL. Sweet roll, dinner
roll...That's more likely than a role as in playing role...
Howard @. - what's the matter, jealous?Hope Jimmer get traded
to the right nba team soon. Good luck with Sacramento if they will let you play.
The Kings are maybe the worst managed team in the league. They have about 10
guards on the roster it seems. They are on their third coach in as many
years......add in all of the talk of selling to Seattle........poorly managed. I
would much rather see Jimmer play somewhere else in the NBA.
@idabluWhy not traded?Jimmer has no NBA value... simple.
With all those guards, why in the heck didn't they trade him? It makes no
sense at all!Free Jimmer!
I agree with rval2. Too bad Jimmer got drafted by such a bad team. He is a great
player and has been very patient waiting for his chance. I admire him greatly!
One more year on his contract, and he can choose his team. Why would any team
draft and keep that many guards? Such a waste of talent!Go Jimmer!
We love you!
I wish him well, but Jimmer is all but gone from that team.Here's hoping he hooks up with an NBA team that can utilize him in the
right way. It's unfortunate (for him) that the Sacramento Kings drafted him
in the first place.
Y-Ask-Y?Another sad, jealous comment from a BYU hater.
Here's a U fan hoping Jimmer, Davies, Andre, and Andrew all do well this
"Michael Malone...has made solid defensive play the team's top
priority."Enough said. Fredette, some of your fans can look
forward to seeing you playing in Europe.
