In Arizona~ The comment was meant for folks who reside in Utah (go back and read
it), However, if you ever got to watch Jimmer torch Arizona in person then you
to owe him for the entertainment! HA! We here in Glens Falls owe Jimmer as well.
He has brought a lot of joy and excitment to the area. In addition~ the BYU vs
Vermont game brought a lot of attention and sold a lot of tickets/generated alot
of money for the area. Jimmers hometown has gotten a lot of attention during his
climb to POY and will continue to. Same with BYU, when have they ever been so
relevant, 30 years ago when Ainge played? People take these young athletes for
granted, they make $ on their names and success. Bottom line, Jimmer kept
everyone on the edge of their seats all year (and he filled a lot of seats) he
will have success and live a comfortable life because of this hard work, but we
owe Jimmer, especially anyone who made a dollar off his name. Octagon has an
opportunity to get Jimmer what he's worth!
Well it seems several of you do find this of interest. I still don't but I stand
killerbees has it right - Jimmer's agent search (and selection) is indeed news
to all of us who enjoy the vicarious thrill of following Jimmer's storied career
(past, present, and future).It's an especially big deal to the
sports agents involved. :-)
To Killerbees: "You should read anything with his name, support him and
follow his every move. You owe him that much."Why in the world would
I owe Jimmer anything? Wow, what a statement!
It's all about readers.There are many, myself included, who read all
Mattered so little that Duckhunter has commented twice....Go Jimmer!!!!
It is "Big News" for those of you that live in Utah because Jimmer is
one of the greatest athletes to ever go to Utah to play basketball and one of
the most successful and decorated athletes to ever come out of a University
located in Utah. He will be an NBA star and picking the right agent was as
important as anything else he will do to prepare for his career. Look at what he
has done for BYU and the state of Utah. I think at this point anything related
to Jimmer's future is "Big News" as it is for us folks located across
the Country in Glens Falls where he is from. He has done a lot for our community
even though he is in Utah, I can't imagine the impact his success has had on BYU
and Utah. You should read anything with his name, support him and follow his
every move. You owe him that much.
Good luck to Jimmer. Can't wait to see where the unanimous POY gets to play next
Come on now. Why do so many of you think that we only receive "news"
in our daily reading? Sometimes it's just plain old information... that's what
this story was. I couldn't care less who he picked as an agent but sometimes
it's just interesting to read about the process. Relax.
What would be cool is if Jimmer fought in the Ocatgon! Jimmer is going to be a
Is this the same group that Heaps works with?
"...is also a Octagon client." Do you lack a grammar checker?
I'll tell you why it's such a big deal...because it isn't that often that a
player from BYU gets this much attention. Before you BYU do-gooders jump all
over me, I'm not criticizing this, I think it's a good thing, but that is the
reason this article with this non-issue topic was written.
I did read it but then wondered why. Probably because it was there. But answer
honestly pete do you really care what agent any athlete signs with? I hadn't
given it much thought until I read that article and then I thought to myself
"so what"?I'm not making a statement about Jimmer here it
is more a statement about what is considered to be news these days. Surely this
is one of the less interesting peices of news out there.
Dear duckhunter: You cared enough to read it. --- Maybe you didn't see
I'll be honest here, as much as I have enjoyed the entire Jimmermania I really
couldn't care less about this "news". I don't see how this matters to
anyone outside of the Fredette family.
sounds like that decision was almost a no-brainer. Is he being represented by
two different agents because one will focus on his NBA contracts and the other
will focus on endorsements?
glad he didn't choose Dan Fegan :)
Boom! It's payday, Jimmer.
