Pete - Queen Creek, AZJune 11, 2019 3:15 p.m.I was recently at the
Jazz/ Suns game in Phoenix and I will tell you that Jimmer had a louder greeting
than any of the other Suns players... just saying... fan base is everywhere.-------Kardashian's have a fanbase everywhere, what
they lack is talent.
Having Dave Rose as the coach for Team Fredette will make James Taft Fredette
feel as though he is finally "home." Rose will say
this.........."Okay kiddos, Jimmer has the ball at all times, no need to
play any defense at all, just surround the basket after Jimmer shoots, get the
rebound, kick-it back out to Fredette's clapping hands, let him launch it
again and again..........now, fellas, I'll scream at the refs all game
James Taft Fredette is headed back to Utah because he has to. He will be
fielding many social events in Utah County this summer hoping for huge donations
to his "charitable" foundation? Donald Trump also had a "charitable
foundation" a while back as well. I'd love to see the factual financial
structure of Fredette's "charity."
@ Rockwell,I know U are angry with me. I didn't wanna rain on
your parade dear soul, but I obviously did. Fredette was a fluke-flash-flood
back then and is now water-under-the-bridge as it stands today.Try
to smile more often pards!!!
@ Phoenix,You accuse me of "spin" dear saint? What I stated
about the struggling PHX Suns giving James Taft Fredette a 10-day contract
wasn't a pure economic ploy to sell tickets because there is a high-density
Mormon population there......?..... of course it was. Sir, that is pure
"economics," and I earned a MBA from a real school in that exact
subject. Is that okay by U?I don't care about Fredette's
old college box scores in Tucson pal......old, meaningless news....if that?
Utah-Hawaii Alum"I'm equating Rudy to Fredette as it
relates to JTF's current/last NBA stint."A desperate
apples-to-oranges comparison.Jimmer was Consensus National Player of
the Year in college and played several seasons in the NBA.Rudy
barely played in college and didn't even get a sniff at playing in the
pros.Jimmer's appeal to the crowd in Phoenix had absolutely
NOTHING to do with Jimmer being an underdog, but everything to do with BYU fans
rooting for a former BYU player.It's obvious that you're
still having nightmares from Jimmer's utter destruction of the rundown utes
in his last game in the Huntsman.
@ Rockwell,You are spot on! However, I'm equating Rudy to
Fredette as it relates to JTF's current/last NBA stint. As I
stated......"everyone cheers for the underdog." And yes, Fredette was
the "Rudy" for the PHX Suns this spring......I'm sure you agree
with me now. All the best to U sir.
Utah-Hawaii Alum"Just remember a true fact as it relates to the
greater PHX area...........Gilbert, Mesa, Chandler, some other small areas as
well, are high density LDS enclaves."LOL at your spin.After Arizona was pasted 69-99 by BYU at McKale Center, Arizona fans gave
Jimmer a standing ovation when he left the game after scoring 49 points, a new
McKale Center record.Jimmer's box score: 16/23 FG,
9/13 3PT, 8/9 FT, 7 Reb, 9 Ast, 2 StlJimmer was, quite frankly,
UNSTOPPABLE that night and even the home Arizona crowd appreciated his brilliant
Oh my goodness.......the BYu-LDS brethren are coming on strong this morning
indeed. Gosh, I'm so sorry that I don't share the same
"spirit" about y'all's historic hero.....James Taft Fredette.
He just cannot play basketball unless he is the SOLE ball hog."You people" try to keep your chins up! I'm sorry I hurt your
Utah-Hawaii Alum"Folks always cheer for the underdog. Did you
ever watch the movie "Rudy?" He was a walk-on kicker for Notre Dame
decades ago and was a crowd fave like Fredette."Just another
example of your delusional fantasies.Jimmer was Consensus National
Player of the Year.Rudy was strictly a practice squad player who
only dressed and got onto the field ONCE during his entire collegiate career.
ut-HAW"We Utes don't care at all what JTF did.......- LOL! You're obsessed with ALL things BYU."We are
in the PAC my friend.......feels good indeed."yawnYour rundown utes have been DOMINATED by the BYU COUGARS for a decade and a
half:14 of 20, most by double digits, including THREE 20-point
blowouts.Utah hasn't beaten BYU by 20+ points THIS CENTURY!
Utah-Hawaii Alum@Pete "Are you even remotely suggesting that
others, like I, in fact, have not accomplished things much more impressive on
the world stage than James Taft Fredette has? If so, then U are sadly
mistaken."It's not a suggestion, it's an absolute
FACT!Except for constantly spamming sports blogs with a steady
stream of inane, BYU-hating comments, what have you ever accomplished on the
Utah-Hawaii Alum"Of course James Taft Fredette is QUICKLY headed
back to milk his tiny fan base."Just another example of your
rival-obsessed hatred of all things BYU...living in your head, rent
Does the author not know that if you have an NBA contract, you cannot play in
this tournament? I thought Jimmer was still under contract with Phoenix. That
would be the reason he is listed as a coach.
I love that Jimmer and his empire of China, international college fan base, fans
in Arizona, and many, many little red brothers absolutely are thrilled Jimmer
keeps getting these great summer leagues to play in to keep us all interested in
what he's up to. Keeps us busy these summer months when some of us are
stuck in dad's basement working contracted customer service jobs. Thanks
for living Jimmer! Looking forward to a fun summer!
@ Pete,Just remember a true fact as it relates to the greater PHX
area...........Gilbert, Mesa, Chandler, some other small areas as well, are high
density LDS enclaves. So, you are correct about fans cheering loudly @ PHX. I
watched that game on tv and saw all the Mormons sitting in the rafters at that
venue. James Taft Fredette was signed at the end of the season by the struggling
Suns to sell tickets, which he did......not that many however.I'm happy for U Pete! Y'all adore your heroes.
@ Pete,You are 100% correct! Folks always cheer for the underdog.
Did you ever watch the movie "Rudy?" He was a walk-on kicker for Notre
Dame decades ago and was a crowd fave like Fredette. Folks wanted to see Rudy do
well....... a fair comparison to U?

had a louder greeting than any of the other Suns players... just saying... fan
base is everywhere.

@ Pete,So what........? We Utes don't care at all what JTF
did.......We are in the PAC my friend.......feels good indeed.
@ VA Texas,Utah hoops was a dumpster fire back then. Fredette was a
ball hog all his life is it. He is in the top 20 all-time NBA Draft busts. We
all saw his unfortunate effort in PHX this spring. I'm old, but I can play
far better D than that poser.
The Utes did get scorched a few times by Jimmer
Utah-Hawaii Alum sounds like a guy whose team got thumped a few time by
@ Pete,Are you even remotely suggesting that others, like I, in
fact, have not accomplished things much more impressive on the world stage than
James Taft Fredette has? If so, then U are sadly mistaken.Fredette
played basketball kinda not very good at the pro level is all. Don't speak
for others kind sir.
I love it when people say that somebody is no good and cannot play. Makes me
wonder how many NBA games they have played in or how many fans they have.
Does Fredette even have a contract with the Shanghai Sharks now? That guy cannot
Of course James Taft Fredette is QUICKLY headed back to milk his tiny fan base.
Even he knows now that he cannot play basketball at all after his unfortunate
NBA fiasco in PHX this spring. Even a goldfish, in a quart jar. could go 0 for
13 from beyond the arc in the NBA. The "lonely master" sure did.
