I can't wait to see Jimmer leave the Kings! Now I just hope he ends up on a good team with a coach who knows how to use him properly. Here's a hint: "Jimmer for threeee!"

If we put on our realistic hats here we would realize the Kings did use Fredette the way they needed to. Fredette will play in the NBA as a twin brother to Shawn Bradley. Very much overrated as a NBA player but will find a 11th - 12th role player for a good career. To slow, no defense, to small = no much interest.

To slow, no defense, to small - and can't spell 'too'. I guess we all have our weaknesses. Jimmer is at least a multi-millionaire in the midst of his.

U-tah,
Sure seems like there is interest from not just one but at least three NBA teams that think Jimmer would fit on their teams and contribute!!! Imagine that!!! Hope Jimmer gets a better chance to help a team and has as long a career as he wants!!!

Go Jimmer!!! Go Cougs!!! Rise Up!!!

My my Chris b still hurt from 47. Holding grudge is not good for your health. As a fellow Utah fan I wouldn't want you to see unwell.

I hope Jimmer finds a new team. Bulls/Cavs/etc., pick up Jimmer and I will be a fan of your team. Heck, if Jimmer becomes a starter (I know, a long shot) I will even buy a jersey. Good luck Jimmer.

San Antonio, Chicago, Boston and Chicago would be decent choices. Stay away from train wreck teams that are similar to the one you are now leaving. That includes New York and Cleveland. Jimmer has already been there and done that and should learn from that experience. I hope that he gets with one of the better coaches like Pop with the Spurs.

I love Jimmer! Can't get enough of those highlights on youtube! JIMMER FOR THREEEEE!

Okay. Understand that Jimmer will for all intensive purposes never about too much in the NBA. He is vary slow and has no ability to play defense. And his haircut is not that of a thug.

Take four example on the other hand the Utes. None of there players play in Europe. They all play in NBA. Or are at least really good at NBA game on Xbox.

Pleas stop writing about this young man. He is to boring too here about. He only make some few millions and does not live in mothers basement. Please wrote more about living in basement of my parents since I need to reed articles about normal people like me.

I bet the idaho stampede would take him. That will be the best offer im thinking. Maybe he can go back to BYU. Lol

Jimmer has been set free from the NBA basement. Now he can sign with a team that knows you have to score more than the other team to win. Funny to see so much interst in Jimmer from the Ute trolls. They must be getting tired of admiring their skiing trophies.

All these haters of a kid who is the classiest, friendliest and most humble guy you can find.

All the hating on the internet is old, old, old.

Best of luck to Jimmer who is shooting 49% from the 3. If somebody believes enough in him, they'll be getting a steal for a low price and a great teammate.

Man in Charge-

Ending a troll post with "lol" pretty well dates someone as over the hill or never been on the hill.

I don't think he'll improve his situation by going to the Cavs. Then again, any of his suitors could be a crap-shoot.

USAlover,

So you were on a team with Jimmer? Cool, when?

from all the options listed above I think Pops and the Spurs are by far the best.

Good for Jimmer. I hope that he can end up contributing on a good team, but I must admit that even as a Jimmer lover, I am not sure if that will ever happen.

Chris B, the one question I have for you is which of the following is greater: your hatred for BYU or your love for the Utes? I can answer the opposite question easily. My love for BYU is far greater than my mild distaste for the Utes. How is it to have a hatred for a team so strong that is as large or larger than how much you like the team you cheer for?

I think some of these comments show some know nothing about basketball. Even here at Duke we have had guys who were the cream of the crop in college ball, but whose game didn't translate well into the pros. I think Jimmer falls into that camp. Its not that he doesn't have skill... it just doesn't transfer into the very upbeat to the hoop style found in the pros. How many pro teams do you see no days relying on the 3 to win games? I will give you a hint.... next to none.

So while I hope he does well... it is time to realize that he isn't going to be the great white hope from Utah. At least he got to play at the highest level.... 99 percent of college players can't even say that.

Hmmm...whether one thinks Jimmer will have any type of NBA or professional bball career, we can speculate all we want because our opinions won't matter.

In fact, could you or I make an educated guess as to Jimmer becoming the NCAA Basketball Player of the Year (2010-11)? Could we have foreseen Jimmer not meshing well and/or getting little (or no) playing time with the Kings?

Similarly, we really don't know how his career will pan out. I hope we all wish him well whether you are a Ute, Cougar, or otherwise type of fan. He's the "consummate teammate and professional" as his teammates and coaches have said.

Whatever happens to him, good luck Jimmer! :)

Jimmer! The Lakers are waiting for you! Utah doesn't want you, but we do.
