He does realize that he is being filmed from every angle when he is playing right?  He and J.R. Smith aren't going to get away with stupid stuff like that.

I have become a Kings fan because of Jimmer, I got caught up in Jimmermania when he was in college and haven't gotten over it.  I was hopeful for Jimmer with the Kings this year when Coach Malone said it would be an open competition.  Maybe it was my Jimmer colored glasses, but it seemed to me that it was never very open. Jimmer outplayed Marcus and Ben didn't he?  I don't think Malone ever expected Jimmer to outplay them when he made that statement. Maybe it was his turnovers, or defense that made the difference, and Malone honestly felt the other guys gave his team a better chance to win.


I try not to be an over the top Jimmer fan.  I realize he has things he needs to work on. As much as I try to see the Kings side of this, I just don't understand why they stuck so hard to shooting guards that can't shoot.  Marcus had a history and Ben has a potential future, so I can see the logic to start the year. But as the year went on, why couldn't the Kings see a potential future in Jimmer?


Maybe Jimmer will move on and find the same kind of situation on whatever team he joins.  But my Jimmermania still thinks that his flashes of brilliance will be on display more often as he just gets the minutes. Travis Outlaw has flashes of brilliance sometimes too, so maybe Jimmer isn't all that different in terms of why he didn't get more playing time?


Well Jimmer, if you are reading this, just remember that the you ARE the best player on your team. It was never your first couple years at any level that you proved that.  Year 4 will be your breakout year, so modify "the contract" to include the Hall of Fame and I'll see you in the all-star game soon.

@snooch2danooch  If they had shown Jimmer any love leading up to this point, they could play him a lot and likely get him to re-sign with the Kings.  The problem is,  they don't value him, and he knows it.  So even if they play him now, he's as good as gone at the end of the season.


So, there is no incentive to play him...  to develop a player that won't be here next year?  NOPE...  to win more games?  NOPE no point in winning now with playoff hopes gone, and draft pick on the line.


So, I think Jimmer fans will just have to wait until next season.  Hope he can find a team that believes in him.

@Andromeda4 @layituplikeaman  Second video here shows his inbounding mistake (along with the airball) http://on.nba.com/1h0iNTV

I certainly hope some team picks him up today and let's him play through some mistakes, because when he's on fire he's really fun to watch.

@Cowbb Here's hoping that things can continue when we are playing against the playoff bound teams.

@Cowbb The Nets looked pretty old and slow.  I think Jimmer would have torn them to bits too.  If the writing weren't on the wall before, it seems obvious now that Jimmer is gone.  I hope they find a trade partner who will let him play.

I was really hoping your "projected starters" would shed a little light on the situation.  So, you really think coach Malone will start the same 5?

Wow a question about possibly starting Jimmer.  And coach Malone entertained the idea.  We'll see if Jimmer can continue playing well.  He won't play this well every game.

Ben is probably shooting better because he's got Marcus and Jimmer playing defense against him now :)
