    "That's odd, I'd have thought they'd have guarded guys who played their own position."

    SDSU routinely had bigger guys with longer arms guarding him. Billy White was normally their PF at 6'8" and he or Kawhi Leonard at 6'7" usually guarded Jimmer. Matter of fact, many times they both guarded him at the same time in a fruitless effort to slow him down.

    I am going to ask the question. Is Jimmer's playing time, being restricted because of his views on traditional marriage. Forget the haters, their IQ of basketball is usually low anyway. Simple question on basketball IQ. How do you know if you are shooting the ball correctly? His defense has been improving. He is one of only a hand full of pure shooters in the NBA. He needs to play and prove himself. There has got to be another reason. I find it interesting to note that suddenly guards are coming out of the woodwork at Chicago. It seems like there is tremendous pressure not to play him.

    The haters are simply trying to remove the bitter memory of Jimmer totally abusing their team - see highlights of Jimmer's last appearance in the Huntsman - on his way to winning every major national award and being named the consensus national player of the year.

    Here's a clue.

    Nothing Jimmer does in the NBA will change what he accomplished at BYU.

    As for not playing anybody - ask Arizona, Florida, and Top 5 SDSU what it was like to try to guard Jimmer.

    This from another post to put in the pie hole of those who claim Jimmer doesn't belong in the NBA:

    Per 36 this year:
    Jimmer: 18.9 ppg, 4.6 apg, 1.0 spg, 46% fg, 49% 3pt
    DJ Agustine: 17.0 ppg, 6.0 apg, 1.0 spg, 41% fg, 42% 3pt

    What exactly do you all mean by "belonging" in the NBA - not everyone is LJ or MJ.
    As quoted by the Spaniard in the movie Princess Bride - "I do not think that means what you think it means."

  • jaba166 Wasilla, AK

    To say he has proven nothing of value in the NBA is also a bunch of bunk. He has a BETTER 3p (49%) and overall shooting (46%) % this year than he ever did when he was schooling almost everyone who tried to guard him in college, only now it's AGAINST NBA TALENT!!! To claim he doesn't belong in the NBA is ridiculous. The evidence is clear. Also AGAINST NBA TALENT, he has more points per minute played than a huge portion of the NBA. He may not be the next LJ, but he belongs.

    To those who say Jimmer played no D in college, or now, you're out to lunch. Granted, he wasn't the team's designated stopper like Emery, but I do believe he was second on the team to Emery in steals / game. He anticipates very well, and though not a lock down defender, his defensive spacing is excellent, and the points scored against him in the NBA is actually better than about 30% of players in the league, and that when almost all teams admit to specifically scheming against him when he's in there because of the "perception" that he's a defensive liability. Yes - it's true - many other coaches have admitted it.

    "Which byu player of the last couple decades wouldn't trade their NBA career for Andre Miller or Andrew Bogut's?"

    Why did you arbitrarily stop at 2 decades? Why not 3 or 4? Or 5? Is it because you didn't want to include Ainge, Roberts' or Hutchins?

    Or why didn't you stop it after 7 or 8 years? Is it because the ute's haven't had a player even drafted in the NBA in that time frame? In fact, wasn't Bogut (the guy who goes fishing 50% of the time during every season because of some form of injury)the last ute actually drafted? Wasn't that something like in 2005? lol.

    I've just spent a couple of hours reading numerous articles about Fredette and the Bulls and the general consensus is that Jimmer should be fine... Apparently when the Bulls waived Murphy that secured Jimmer for the Brewer acquisition... This opinion is led by none other than ESPN itself...

    The general comment supporting the fact that Jimmer will stay on through the play offs is based on the fact that Fredette is still considered by Thibs and many players on the roster as one of the best 3 ballers in the league... And they quickly add, "He wasn't acquired for his Defensive Skills, he was acquired because he can shoot the rock..."

    There is one reason, and one reason only, that the troll haters spew their meaningless rant - he played for BYU. And they are still aggravated about being lit up by 49 at the huntsman center.

    And "he played in the MWC, before the MWC got good"??? Good grief - are you kidding me?

    I see how this works... How's this: What Ute football player of the last 40 years wouldn't trade their NFL career for Steve Young's?

    I was comparing the critics to the doers, Chris, not trying to avoid the argument by moving the goalposts.

    Jimmer is a fine person, a fine basketball player, and universally respected by real Utes -- the ones who actually played. It is the live-life-vicariously crowd that hopes and looks for flaws.

    For those who think Jimmer can't create his own shot and is mainly a post up shooter - your bball i.q. is extremely low (and you've never watched him go to work on his you tube highlight game videos). There are many NBA guys who cannot create shots like Jimmer. He's fearless in taking the ball to the hoop and is quite capable of making lay ups frequently against the trees down low in the NBA. I've seen it with my own eyes, and it's quite impressive.

    One on one in the open court, ha! You can practically count the two, or the pull up three - he's likely to score most anytime in that situation - deadly. His floater in the lane is george Gervinesque, sweet touch in the lane (did I say no FEAR)! I don't understand why he hasn't been let loose in the NBA? No one plays defense in the league durring the regular season. A person who is quick enough to juke just about any defender in the NBA is quick enough to play some D.

    Even though Jimmer drilled my Utes, I was really hoping things would work out for him in the NBA. I've rarely seen such a pure shooter in college and thought he could have a Korver, JJ Reddick, Steve Kerr, type of career with the right offensive scheme/team. I don't understand why Chicago signed him and planted him on the bench with several DNP/Coach's decision since his arrival.

    Hopefully the right situation exists for Jimmer in the NBA, if not, European hoops is not a bad way to make a living for the next several years.

    More quotes:

    "Until he shows more interest in defense than a blind man has in rainbows, he's going to spend most of his NBA life sitting on padded folding think this barely 6-2 kid with no speed and YMCA hops can be the next Maravich or Ainge or Westbrook? Fredette about it."

    "Finally, the Jimmer was unveiled as 90 percent media creation, 10 percent basketball prodigy. No reasonable person can watch Jimmer and Kemba, and tell me Jimmer's in the same league. Laughable. The Jimmer and that hype is done! That guy, trust me, is coming to an NBA bench near you."

    "Jimmer Fredette will be in Europe in a year or two. He has no future in the league. None. He can't create his own shot, he has a hard time coming off screens for a shot and he's not a point guard."

  • Henry Drummond San Jose, CA

    I agree. Give Jimmer his due. He was far more than an "OK" college player. He lit it up. Some may say he's a "one trick pony" but its one great trick. If you can shoot as well as he does, there is a place for you in the NBA. What he really needs is to settle into a role with a team that plays to his strengths. And there's no question he needs to work on defense - a lot. There will be a team that will pick up Jimmer at bargain basement prices, teach him the defensive skills he needs, and be well rewarded.

    "He doesn't belong in the NBA!"
    "He won't be wanted in the NBA soon!"
    "He is too much of an offensive liability!"
    "Neiner, neiner....I told you so!"

    "Jimmer is amazing! He just needs a good coach and time!"
    "Sacramento was horrible for him - terrible team and coach!"
    "Jimmer's defense will improve!"
    "Look at his points per minute played and %s on 3's and FT's!"
    "He needs more playing time!"

    Honestly, I'm sick of everyone assuming they know exactly how Jimmer is going to pan out as a player. I give him nothing but mad props for being in the NBA.

    Lets play the yes/No game....

    Was Jimmmer Awesome in College.... Yes.

    Lets move on....

    Has Jimmer done well in the pros... No.
    Is Sacramento considered a quality basketball organization... No.
    Did many pundits think that Sacramento was a good fit for Jimmer... No.
    Has Sacramento....

    He's not in Sacramento anymore, move on from those excuses.

    Did NBA scouts think Jimmer's game translated to the NBA... NO!

    “Jimmer Fredette has never shown that he can do all that much in the NBA. He’s not playing against college kids. He’s playing against grown men, professionals. Everyone he plays against has great athleticism.” Fredette, he explains, lacks the physical attributes required to play at an elite level in the NBA. “Where’s the strength? Where’s the foot quickness? Where’s the length? He’s way down in the equation physically in the NBA.”

  • Qwest Perfected Salt Lake City, UT

    I don't think anybody can deny that Jimmer was a great college basketball player. He is a great shooter and was given a total green light from anywhere on the floor. He didn't play much defense at byu because he didn't have to that wasn't and still isn't a big part of their game plan. That is the biggest knock you hear about Haws.

    There is no doubt that Jimmer can still shoot, but at his height it is tougher for him to get off his shot. There have been plenty of successful players in the NBA that are the same height or even shorter but they have better speed than Jimmer and they can all play good defense.

    I would say that the verdict is still out on him as being able to be a legit guard in the NBA. I do think that it will be harder and harder for him to find playing time on any team as he sits on the bench. If he is going to have a chance, he is going to need to learn how to play D.

    Some of you folks need an introduction to some facts:

    Cottonwood Heights, UT


    "'...I witnessed him totally outplay Kawhi Leonard...'"

    "That's odd, I'd have thought they'd have guarded guys who played their own position."

    If you'd seen the game(s), Steve Fisher (SDSt Coach) played Leonard on Jimmer in an attempt to slow him down. So one guards the guy the coach assigns you; and yes, it was a severe compliment to Jimmer for Fisher to make that assignment.

    Gilbert, AZ

    "Jimmer is slow but quick and can shoot but can't jump or play defense."

    Jimmer maybe slow and poor on defense, but his vertical leap is ~39" so I wouldn't say he "can't jump."

    When are people going to learn to be objective and admit that Jimmer is a bust at the NBA level? He isn't getting playing time for a reason. If he was as good as you all say he is, he would be getting playing time. First he was going to be the MVP of the Sacramento Kings, but the Kings didn't play him because they were a bad organization. Now he is on the bulls where he was going to take Derrick Rose's spot. But now Chicago is a bad organization because they aren't playing him. This pattern will repeat until he is out of the league within a year or two.

    April 8, 2014 12:45 p.m.

    To be fair, Jimmer can shoot the long ball like none other. The problem is, shooting (from long range) is only one part of the equation for playing and excelling in the NBA. Jimmer was allowed to play no defense at BYU, and so half of the overall game needed in the NBA is none existent on his part. Unless he can suddenly become a defensive stopper, I don't see him having much of a chance at this highest level.

    Is Jimmer getting more minutes in Chicago.... No.
    Is Chicago a better basketball organization than Sacramento.... Yes
    Is Chicago one of the top defensive teams in the NBA... Yes
    Did the coach for chicago say that Jimmer would likely get few minutes this late in the season when they signed him... Yes.
    Has Chicago been winning most of their games without playing Jimmer... Yes.
    If I am the coach of Chicago and I am already winning a high percentage of my games without playing the new guy who is not experienced with our offensive or defensive schemes...would I mess with my rotation in order to play the new guy more?.. Probably a No..

    There are plenty of players who are amazing at the college level, whose skills don't translate to the pro's. This doesn't mean they were "overrated" in college, it just means the game is different. "Jimmer" is playing teams where all the players are far superior to the best of the best players he ever faced in college.

    Even at programs like Duke and UNC, we have seen plenty who were stars in college, and failed to reach the same level of play in the pros. And we have equally seen the opposite come true as well…

    Lets be really clear…. Jimmer played in a weak conference. He did well. But it was not the same competition that players like J. J. Redick played against, and got similar or better college numbers.

    I hope Jimmer can come to the Portland Trailblazers team. He fits the system that Coach Stotts has set up there, and it is time for them to weed out some of their young but unimpressive bench talent and to pick up scorers like Jimmer. He'd have a very long career there. However, I am more worried that he'd end up on a San Antonio team or worse yet, a rebuilding Knicks team. There are not many guys in the NBA with Jimmer's talent for finding the cup or for finding the open man. San Antonio has a shooter in Patty Mills, but he was passed around and not given much of a chance until Coach Popovich gave him a chance. And New York has a great talent evaluator in Phil Jackson. Please Portland, bring in the Jimmer!

If Jimmer isn't up to par in practice, he isn't going to play in the game. I'm not saying Jimmer wasn't a great college player, but we all saw this coming that he won't make it in the NBA. He would be playing if he was the best player, but he isn't and the coach sees that in practice.

  • eastcoastcoug Danbury, CT
    April 8, 2014 8:06 a.m.

    I'm amazed at some of the comments here. Jimmer had some amazing games in college. Yes, he's done poorly in the NBA. But to go back and say he was NEVER good is illogical. He was one of the best collegiate athletes to play in the state of Utah.

    It happens often that standouts in college don't make it in pro's. I'm sure many of us have had the experience of only being able to "make it" professionally at one level. How many of us have gone from a small national company to a much bigger global one or moved to another city and part of the world and made it to the top levels of leadership and performance? That rarely happens too. So many variables at play...

    Before you go knocking Jimmer, ask yourself what you have done in your life and if you've EVER done anything equivalent in sports or work or anything of a competitive nature on a national or global level. Why would you want to take away what Jimmer (or anyone else) has done simply because they're struggling now?

    "The only reason Jimmer did okay in college was because he played in the MWC before it got good so he never had any competition."

    The best year the MWC has ever had was during Jimmer's senior year. BYU, SDSU, and New Mexico were all extremely good teams that season. If I remember correctly, the MWC was ranked the 3rd best conference in RPI. They haven't done that since. So, to say he didn't face any competition is just ludicrous.

    And, yes, Kawhi Leonard did guard Jimmer at times. Many teams tried to put long, athletic defenders on him to limit his shot. As we all know, it didn't work.

    You don't know what you don't know. It would be nice for Jimmer to get several quality starts where he knows the game is his and see what he can do. That hasn't happened in his time as a pro. Wasn't too long ago he got a few minutes and pumped in 24 points. Imagine if he had the whole game, or like I said, several games. Then you could determine if he was able to compete at that level. From what I've seen of the few minutes he's gotten, he does fine. He just hasn't found the right fit.

  • thebigsamoan Richmond, VA

    To be fair to Jimmer, he has never been given the chance to really see what he could do. Those who are hating and dissing on him are not being fair in their assessments. I mean how can you judge someone's real value to a team when you're only given 25 minutes in 7 games? C'mon guys! Let's be real here! That's about 3.2 mins a game? How many any other players can you honestly say would do better if they were all given the same chance? Can you all honestly say that Jimmer wouldn't produce more if he was given a fair share of playing time instead of a measly 3+ minutes a game instead? I hope Jimmer will eventually find a team that will give him that chance. He deserves it and more!

    To AggieAndee, Worf was right. Tell that to the U of Arizona faithful, no opposing player scored more points than Jimmer. They gave him a standing ovation at the end of the game.

    We seem to not have a shortage of opinions concerning Jimmer, both good and bad. Most players are judged after they have played significant minutes. Unfortunately for Jimmer, he is not one of them. In college I witnessed him totally outplay Kawhi Leonard and other top players when they played. Kawhi was fortunate to get drafted by and to play for San Antonio. If Fredette was given the same chances as Kawhi we might not be discussing whether or not he can play in the NBA. We would already know.... As for whether he can play at this level, we can only guess.

    Jimmer will sign a contract with an NBA team after the season ends. Guaranteed.

    Jimmer scored around fifty on PAC 10 Arizona. Twice

    The only reason Jimmer did okay in college was because he played in the MWC before it got good so he never had any competition. He would've been on the bench in the ACC or Big 12. Jimmer belongs in the D league, if there even.

    We all say this coming. Jimmer is not NBA material because he doesn't have the skills or the speed. He was overrated in college and turned out to be one of the biggest busts of his NBA class.

    It's probably a good time for Jimmer to brush up on his Turkish because he'll finish his career overseas.
