@benbackstreet And the Kings couldn't figure out how to use "pure gold"!! Totally amazed and baffled by this for 3 years!! And I'm not a Jimmer fanatic. I'm just more stunned no Kings coach knew how to use someone with such an offensive talent. "THE" most important talent in offense. Such a head shaker.
We'll see I guess with his new team whether he was really a wash or not.
1 week, 4 days ago on Why Jimmer Fredette no longer made sense for the Sacramento Kings
CRAP title for this article. You said nothing!!
Super Disappointed with the Kings. Even this New Organization couldn't find a way of using someone with this type of shooting talent. Unbelievable!! A team could be doing everything right in a game. But if you can't put the ball in the hole as the Kings couldn't do as in tonight's first quarter, YOU LOSE! Ultimately baskets wins games. And we got rid of the best capable shooter on the team. And couldn't find a way of using him!! Blown away Unbelievable!!! Sad day as a King fan and ashamed. Good Luck Jimmer and I wish you the best. And as much a King fan I am, I hope every time you play us, You Kill US!! We (the coaching staff) deserve every spanking you give us. Stay Classy and have a wonderful career!!

they have Jimmer at 1.217 PPS. IT at 1.318. Acy at 1.330 & Cus at 1.357. Didn't see a TS% header.
Don't get me wrong. I like and want Jimmer to really explode and start showing his stuff. He just needs more time on the floor. I think someone is nuts for not giving him more chances to shine.

@Charger11 Sorry. You're right. I should have said "for this team". His points per shot are just behind Cousin and Acy. I'm just a Kings fan.
@benbackstreet @Mad Dam @daddychop @Charger11 Agreed. Teams will focus hard on Gay and Cuz. Thats why IT will keep his dribble swirling around like he does to break down the defense on these 2 so he can get them open. IT is a perfect distraction to draw these defender away from our guys with his shooting ability. IT has always made the Kings better for years when he's on the floor. Many coaches have tried other things for years. And it always comes back to IT being the guy because we play better when he on the floor.
Give this team a break. Between the youth, the merry go round of coaches, strategies and players, it's gonna be a while for things to gel. Give this organization at least a season or so once it has defined its roster. No team in the league as replaced more than the Kings.
I'm as frustrated waiting for things to gel but you have to be realistic about what these guys are dealing with.
@Charger11 @Mad Dam @TABDOG I can't argue with your negativity here. I'm quite baffled myself and understand your frustration. I understand the point "Defense wins games". But not without balls in the basket!!
@daddychop @Charger11 Well, we had a pass first PG in GV, no? Players need to get open in order to be passed to, No? And when passed to, shots need to go in the basket to count, no?
Why do you think Malone leaves IT in when he dribbles around looking for his shot? He's far from being a coach to not sit a player who he disapproves of their play.
IT's strength is breaking down the defense with his dribbling to find a shot. And his percentages are high. So teams double him trying to stop him. It's then IT looks for the other open player to pass to. Unlike Gay who never seems to pass and who takes horrible shots no matter how many people are doubling up on him. I always feel more comfortable when IT shoots than any other on the team. He's got the touch more so than many on the team, most nights. And usually he takes over late in the game because those who he does find open are not consistent with their shots taken and we are behind in points. Granted, Gay can make some amazing shots in those situations mentioned above. But he should be the one your complaining about when it comes to "moving the ball and playmaking". Teams double up on him just like they do with IT. In my observation, he's the most "shoot first" one on the team.
@TABDOG Yea, he does seem to be a Good Guy!! I'd like to see him finish strong this year. I had good feelings that he'd have a rebound year during this past summer. So far, I'm proud of him and how he's done. I still feel he's gonna get a little better before the years out.

@TABDOG Agree with you on the Malone comment. Jimmer's shooting numbers are decent considering his minutes. And did well when he got good time in the game the other night. Malone sees something we don't. I see good scoring and percentages. Defense isn't everything when you don't have high percentage scoring on the floor. For some reason, that doesn't seem to be of a value for Malone. I'm baffled by that. There are many in the league who can't do both and yet they play and are valued on other teams.
@TABDOG All I'm saying is, He not as bad as you make him out to be. To me, it seems a lot of folk give him a back hand afterthought. He has been very productive and beneficial coming off the bench. His numbers aren't great. But I do like what he does when he gets in the game. He rebounds, makes Big 3's when needed and with those arms of his, does a good job of defending. He plays with heart and hustle. And he contributes well in my opinion.
And I know you were tired. I was just doing the math for you as directed. Take Care! Didn't mean to seem like I was going off on you.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Sacramento Kings acquire Roger Mason Jr. and cash from Miami Heat for conditional second rounder
@TABDOG @Mad Dam Shooting %: Thornton at 38; Ben at 36; Ray at 36.
3P%: IT at 37; Gay at 34; Dwill at 25; Thorton at 32; Ben at 33; Ray at 29.
He beat these guys with the math as requested.
@sebass31 @snooch2danooch The Kings have never used Jimmer to any great extent. The argument that they won't use him because he's likely going to sign with another team is Crazy. What's Crazy is for Jimmer to stay with a team that has yet to give him a decent chance of developing into anything.
His percentages are very very good for the time he is given. Yes, maybe not the best defender but he hustles far more than most on the team. And his shooting is too good not to utilize. Say what you will about defense and I totally agree defense is big but hitting the buckets more frequently wins games just as much!! I just can't understand how this is not a value on a basketball team!!!
And his game against Brooklyn is a perfect example. He was given great minutes. He scored in the IT, Cuz and Gay range. And we won the damn game!!

@TABDOG Yea Outlaw was horrible scoring 18 points against the Warriors. Worthless.
2 weeks, 5 days ago on Sacramento Kings acquire Roger Mason Jr. and cash from Miami Heat for conditional second rounder
Gay tried 3 times to go up with the ball. The first 2 times he's stop due to being hit across his right arm. What else would have stopped his upward momentum in this clip? The 3rd you can't see because his body is blocking the ball from this angle. Apparently that's the one that resulted into the jump ball which is wrong too. It just got smacked out of his hands.

James Ham, I don't know what you're not seeing. Gay was whacked across his right arm twice. Once by Lee, then Conley. End of Story, dude. Plus IT got the no call also.
Sure we should have played better at the end. But it doesn't excuse the Ref no calls on fouls.
Love his Spark off the Bench!! Love hearing of the off court chemistry.

@kevshootit @Mad Dam Would Love It to happen. I sure his ceiling hasn't been reached yet. His quickness and strength ARE impressive. I'm with you. If he could get stronger, he would be a King for a long time.
