    Utah Jazz - Jimmer will not be an all-star in any organization. His biggest asset is his cult like fan base. As part of the ailing Jazz franchise he will draw fans and sell merchandise. There are thousands of fans in Utah Valley willing to purchase tickets and scream like lunatics for the opportunity to see Jimmer lobbing half court shots. From jersey sales to the "Get Jimmered" ticket sales promotional, Utah is where he should land.

    Mussing with U.

    I think that Jimmer is one of the purest shooters out there, his stats don't lie. However, and I am only quoting with experts are saying about Jimmer and having a little fun in the process. I like Jimmer and truly wish him well and that he will blossom on a different team that isn't so disfunctional as the Kings.

    GO UTES!!

    I see you'e still smarting from that 47-point beat down Jimmer laid on the Utes in his final visit to the HC.

    It's hilarious how the BYU haters are forced to remember how badly Jimmer owned U every time another Jimmer article is posted.

    Best team for Jimmer hands down is BYU. There he can stretch the floor, have no restrictions on how many shots he takes, he can also play a lot of minutes and contribute immediately. As for any other NBA team, he isn't quick enough to play D, can't create separation for his own shot, his ball-handling skills are lacking, and he is too small for the 2 guard.

    Jimmer is a good kid and a great role model. I hope that he finds a team where he can work his magic like Alex Smith did at Kansas City after having his talents lost at San Fran for a number of years.

    GO UTES!!

    BTW, this article was absolutely hilarious.

    I don't care where Jimmer plays I'd follow him. What a class act in a classless sport. I'd even love to follow him in Europe. Needless to say, I'm a Jimmer fan and always will be.

    Very good article. Let me start by saying even though we had Linsanity, I would very much hope if Jimmer went to the Rockets, which I hope he does not, that he would play ahead of Jeremy Lin, we are comparing apples to oranges here when talking about the 2 of them and that's been the issue with Jimmer all along, no one even knows yet what he's capable of. 3 year's in Sacramento, 3 different Coaches and never a chance to prove himself! Had Westphal stayed Jimmer may be an All Star by now! I have been confused so many times watching the Kings. I mean when Jimmer plays, he has an impact, he leads the team. Even in the Knicks game, you could clearly see how much better the Kings were with Jimmer running the point, as soon as Isiah came in and Jimmer moved to the 2, the game changed flow and the Kincks came back. It was SO evident, both in the 2nd and 4th quarters. I cannot wait to see Jimmer leave the Kings, mostly so he can torch them when he plays them!

    I'm hoping he'll land on a team where he can contribute. My guess is that someone will pick him up this year to finish out the season, and he'll end up on a different team next year.

    This is all good news. Jimmer will be free... Jimmer will play for a team where the players actually want and know how to win games... which means they will pass him the ball. And I will not have to pay attention to the Kings anymore. I have already deleted Kings from my sports updates list..... Yeah for Jimmer....

    I agree completely. Jimmer is the only reason I have for paying attention to the NBA. Being able to watch Jimmer without having to watch the Kings would be just great (not that I get to watch much of any US sports down under). I just hope he makes it onto a team where he is put in a position to do what he does best - score points. Even if that team is the Lakers, which would be a little tough to stomach. But the Lakers are definitely struggling right now, so it might present a good opportunity.

    Amen brother! Jimmer's freed! No Lakers though, I want to still like Jimmer.

    What team can't use shooting? Always nice to have some shooting coming off the bench. For a playoff bound team though, I could understand the hesitancy given Jimmer's lack of defensive skill set.
