I'm confused...what's the point of signing this guy?  They let Jimmer go so they could give the Kings rookies more playing time, and then turn around and spend money on another guy who isn't really going to help with anything either?  Jimmer wasn't in the Kings' future so they released him, and I'm guessing Orlando Johnson isn't either so I don't understand the logic here.

@Kingznut Actually, having Jimmer gone will make me more willing to write on this site.  The comments here often annoy me because they only involve people whining both for and against him.  I'm a big Jimmer fan, but I I'll be happy to be able to have more objective conversations about the Kings as a whole instead of only focusing on one guy.

Help defense means you bring one other guy, max two, to stop the guy with the ball from getting an easy basket.  It does NOT mean bringing the entire team in to stop him, which leaves everyone else wide open.  When someone is shooting like Krover was, you have to have someone on him the entire time and never come in to help--leave that to someone else.  I can understand having that problem on a few possessions, but by the fourth quarter it should definitely be stopped.

@TABDOGI completely understand where you're coming from, but you're never going to be able to convince anyone to like Jimmer by throwing stats and "facts" at them (especially since everyone's definition of a "fact" is usually very biased), and it usually just has the opposite effect of causing people to like Jimmer even less.

@al asifyouknow  I think IT is the best PG we have right now, but no he's not one of the top 3 in the league.  He has made some mistakes and I think he'll get better, but I like his aggressiveness and his quickness really helps him to get to the basket.  I am a BYU alumnus and so I really like Jimmer, but I don't think he's better than IT.

In short, I am both a Kings fan (I grew up here) and a Jimmer fan, but I understands that while he has a great skill set for the NBA (primarily his shooting ability), I'm not going to let that blind me as to the accomplishments of other guys on the team. IT has played better than Jimmer and therefore he (IT) deserves to be starting.

If your sole purpose for posting here is to talk about how bad the Kings are (especially due to their use/non-use of Jimmer) then please just don't post here.  If you're a Jimmer fan then the greatest disservice you can do is to annoy everyone by constantly complaining about his lack of playing time--all that does is make people dislike Jimmer (unfairly) because some of his fans are over the top, and causes James Ham to regret ever mentioning Jimmer's name in the first place.  :)

So please, if you like Jimmer then turn it down a notch so that he can be judged purely on his performance rather than on his fanbase, which is too frequently over-aggressive.  (hint: if you're calling people names and claiming that they live in their mom's basement, I'm probably talking to you.)

I just hope they don't bench him all year and lower his value further.  If they're not going to play him then they should trade him now while they can still get some value for him rather than just having him walk away.  Either way, I wish him luck.

I say we drop Cousins, Salmons, Hayes and Patterson and pick up 4 more guards, because that would make sense too.

No matter how people feel about him, you've got to admit that Jimmer has class.
