It appears China is where the lord wants Jimmer at this time. Perhaps it is his
mission calling. I never thought Jimmer was NBA caliber. Never was one to
play defense. I wish him the best in his endeavors.
@Illuminati After all Jimmer's NBA stints, you still see Fredette as
I'm on my way to China right now, i'm there a week each month, people
forget the 1.4 billion people there and the sport of choice is basketball (and
ping pong in the Olympics).Jimmer is becoming a huge star there,
he's got a great following, it's cool to see.
Excellent interview. Class act. I wish him well and hope he makes it in the
Who is Jimmer?
Love this guy. Such a good person, inside and out.@illuminated. I
share your frustration but the reality is his game is great for college and
other leagues (China is lower than NCAA) but not the NBA. Even Danny Ainge has
the same view. And there have been plenty of others who were stars in college
but didn't succeed at a higher level.@burningblue. I agree.
Stephon Marbury loved it in China. So maybe Jimmer has found his calling? That

Reading this article I have to wonder if it isn't better for Jimmer and the
church to have him playing in the CBA. He's having a positive impact on
China that he never would have had if he hadn't left the NBA.
Love Jimmer and think he got totally shafted in the NBA. He's the biggest
basketball star in China right now (ever?) and leads the league in scoring.
You're telling me he couldn't legitimately cut it on a single NBA team
while countless other Chinese players have? Right.
