If anyone has been keeping up (I know it is hard because the Utah media and 75% of this state has a Jimmer fetish) the guy is struggling...
some sympathetic Utah fans may think that is awful, sad, wish the poor kid the best...
Me, personally... I LOVE IT. I really don't know if I have ever liked a "superstar" less... and as I predicted he was just not an NBA player... I heard BYU fans compare him to Nash which is potentially the dumbest thing I have ever heard in sport's history...
but The Kings are frantically looking to deal the little pudgy boy who cannot create for himself... or others.
Adam Morrison 2.0 has a nice ring to it... ask your BYU neighbors how Adam Morrison 2.0 is doing... Let em know Andre Miller just signed a 3 year 15 million dollar deal... Jimmer might be in the unemployment line soon... or worse... the D league :)
The funny thing about Adam Morrison is, he's still in the NBA.
Well, sort of—if you count Jimmer Fredette as Adam Morrison 2.0.
The story arc is familiar: Sharpshooter becomes a star in the collegiate ranks, is drafted too high and into a bad situation, promptly falls flat on his face as a volume shooter.
And, frankly, it looks like the ending might be the same, too, if failure in the summer league is any indication. The former BYU standout put up some gaudy numbers at times in Las Vegas (18 points per game, including a 30-point outburst against the Houston Rockets), but shot horrifically from the process.
By that, I mean he hit just 35.8 percent of his attempts from the field, including a woeful 21.9 percent from three.
Not good, especially for a guy whose whole reputation is based on his ability to shoot."
