Jimmer will proof them wrong when he goes to another team.

As evidenced by Davies, sometimes you don't know what you've got until you give them a shot. Davies was never on the NBA draft radar yet because he hustles, is smart and has good character he is getting playing time. Jimmer could really help some team that knows how to use him.Put him in the last 5 minutes with a lead and he'll preserve a win, IMHO.

Jimmers game may never translate to NBA greatness. He's still the best thing to happen to basketball in the state of Utah since the Jazz made their title runs back in the late 90's. We all enjoyed his antics and performances on the basketball court. Maybe he does just need a change of scenery or maybe he needs to go to Europe to hone his skills. As for now he is wasting away in no mans land in Sacramento. As for the other locals in the NBA, Andrew Bogut has been in the league for several years now and is finally in a place where he has blossomed. It has taken him years to make a difference. Many called him the biggest first round mistake in the History of the League. Golden State has had the patience to let him develop. Andre Miller has a great home in Denver. He has been a player who has contributed to every team he has been a part of. He can fit in anywhere. Good luck to all our locals in the NBA.

People in Portland keep calling for a pure shooting guard, and I think Jimmer could fill the bill there. Coach Stotts likes fast play and long-range shooting.

Yes! Free Jimmer! Send him to the Blazers!

Rockarolla - Bogut in the 1st round pales as a mistake in comparison to the Blazers taking Sam Bowie No 1, leaving Michael Jordan in the 2nd spot....

With their program in disarray and stuck in the lower third of the pac 12, it's quite understandable that Utah fans have an interest in BYU.

Great point about Damon Lilliard. C'mon Dnews what's up with that ommission?

I submitted a comment that Brandon Davies was not a center at BYU. The comment wasn't approved, which I can live with--I guess we don't want to hurt anyone's feelings?--as long as the article is corrected.

One poster here said something about another poster having a point when BYU fans don't respond to him. To that, I would say that there are those here who, upon seeing certain people posting, don't respond because they don't know what was written since they knew it wouldn't be worth their time to look at it. Some BYU fans, as well as some Utah fans, agree that is the best way to deal with a person who knows nothing but negativity. I as well have mentioned that before: Someone like that is simply looking for attention. It's a sad existence, in my opinion, but the rest of us could realize that type will eventually slink away if they are consistently unable to get anyone riled up.

I'd like to see a daily feature setup in the same place for easy reference that has the Utah colleges' pro players ongoing stats - and a paragraph about the most outstanding individual effort among them. There are so few players, it wouldn't take much space. How about it DesNews ?
