    Excuse me? There is NO SUCH THING as "irrational love" for Jimmer. Ha ha.🤗

    I think those of us who adore him have sufficient reasons for doing so and are in reasonable control of our emotions. I have no doubt that the majority of us are fairly stable adults who (otherwise?) function rather well in society.

    Just my humble opinion.

    It’s obvious that the usual haters are still smarting over the beatdown Jimmer laid on the Utes in his final game at the Huntsman.

    No, we're still laughing at cartwheels BYU fans are doing for an overrated player that went 3-4 in the NCAA.

    BYU's only 3 R64 wins in over 2 decades.

    Y Ask U - “Jimmer is overrated.”

    Remind us the last time you scored 50 points in a professional basketball game.

    Remind us who hasn't scored 50 points in the CBA?

    Pierre Jackson has done it in 7 of 21 33% games.

    Who? Exactly!

    If you can't hate Jimmer, then hate the haters!

    Now there's a contribution to society!

    Grow up. We each have our opinions. Mine just happens to correspond with the opinions of NBA coaches and agents.

    Yours doesn't.

    And if my failure to score 50 points in a (semi)professional basketball game eliminates the validity of my opinion... doesn't the same apply to you? When was the last time you scored any points in a pro game? OK, then, I guess your irrational love of Jimmer is meaningless!

    BYU beats U for the 14th time in the last 18.

    Jimmer will have an avid fan-base at the Maverick Center. He still is a sharp shooter scoring nearly 45 points a game in China. Cry your hearts out those who wish him ill. He's coming back!

    @Roy88 and kimmyp

    Always enjoy seeing "positive" comments about the great Jimmer Fredette and BYU.

    Most of us can't come close to matching his annual income nor his positive influence on others.

    So, keep those "cards and letters" coming.

    Isn't Jimmie like a big time star for the Sac Kings??

    I guess his annual earnings are "overrated" as well.

    @USAlover

    Jimmer "haters"?

    Well, if there are any, isn't it time to forgive and Fredette?

    Good deal. This will give some happiness to the blue faithful in July before the reality of 0-9 sets in during August. 😹
