“Can Jimmer play in the NBA?
Sadly after 3 seasons I still don't know, which is more a judgment of this
organization than Fredette.” Well said nchr.
If Smart or Malone ever played him,
we would know. Macallum played 28 minutes last night—when did Jimmer ever get
that kind of pt? Apparently the Kings brain trust was so convinced that Jimmer
is no good from getting a better look at him in practice and so forth, that
they didn’t feel it was necessary to play him more minutes to find out if he
The only problem with that logic is
that these are the same geniuses that drafted Ben MacRobinson and stubbornly
continue to run him out there for 25 minutes a game to stink the joint up when
it’s obvious to us real basketball experts that he is a hopeless case.
And Chicago apparently thinks it’s worth a small risk to
see if the Kings are making a mistake with Jimmer. And the Kings should have
made sure too. There was no mystery that Isaiah was a good player—Malone didn’t
need to keep running him out the 42 minutes a game. For what—they are in last
place for crying out loud! The Kings should have given Jimmer some Macallum type
minutes for 25 games or so to make certain he was a bust—dumb.
Oh, and sorry about the ad hominem
stuff—it’s a bad habit I picked up from listening to the Grant Napear Show!

@Jim Les for 3 @Charger11@KennethBrody
you just proved my point for me--
“But I'm willing to bet much more on the
Kings organization's ability to make those assessments than your ability.”
You don’t even know who I am?
“Remember how much more they know
about a player than you do. They see practices: we don't. They know the
player's personality: we don't” Apparently not—I could tell in no time from
watching the Maclamore and Robinson were busts. I don’t need to see practices
or anything else—all I need to see is he has bad hands—can’t play.oh, but I
forgot, according to you I’m not qualified, because I’m not a “professional”
You sound like either a bureaucrat or a college professor—scheesch!

I believe the “assists” metric in basketball
has some flaws—it is not perfect. For example, it would be interesting to count
dribbles and compare that to assists—I believe that Isaiah Thomas gets cheap
assists because he is always dribbling so much. Theoretically, if a point guard
dribbled out the shot clock every possession and passed the ball of with 5
seconds left, that PG would get a lot of assists because the player receiving
the ball has to jack it up before the shot clock expires. I think this
generally accounts for Isaiah’s “assists”
And, I don’t think IT “earned” his playing time either—this is not an ethics class. For example, you might
have a player who has a ceiling of 100, let’s call him Jimmer, and he shoots 38%-42%-49%
from 3 his 1st 3 years, but is slower to develop. Then you might
have a player that has a ceiling of 80 that is faster to develop, let’s call
him Isaiah, and he shoots a consistent 36% from 3 (which is league average). It
would be intelligent for certain “people who work in
professional basketball” to give more player development time to the player who
has the higher potential. Especially considering the KINGS ARE IN LAST PLACE—HELLO!!!!!!!
@Jim Les for 3 @KennethBrody
“I just don't understand why you
would call people who work in professional basketball "simple-minded"
in contrast to your own abilities to project player performance.”
You make the same mistake that many
people make—you assume that the Kings management and coaches are better
evaluators that any fan could possibly be. That is really a bad assumption—and yes—a
stupid assumption. There are thousands of basketball fans out there—surely there
are some that understand basketball a lot better than certain “people who work
in professional basketball”
For example: The “professionals”
that you refer to drafted Ben Bricklamore who is and will be a bust. He has bad
hands. Hands of stone. He has some kind of hand-eye-coordination problem. The
ball is slippery to him. The ball is always slipping out of his hands. He’a
always dropping the ball. And these professionals: GM D’Allesandro, Coach
Malone, and the rest of the brain trust can’t see it. Screw them, they don’t
show me they know crap!
Michael Jordan drafted Kwane Brown
#1 pick—a bust—Is MJ a “professional” who deserves deference?
@Jim Les for 3 @KennethBrody
Who cares if "it's his own fault"? you're not arguing with your wife trying to establish blame. Maybe he's sensitive--so what?
"Every other kings player" was not treated like crap like Jimmer was. You're talking nonsense.
Isaiah Thomas was "developed" by given extensive playing time. He is an average shooter--so what have you got? An interesting player who is a ball stopper--that is deadly.

That is a good example of linear thinking—KingsAllDay—isn’t
tall enough to be a SG?
On offense he is faster than taller players—the
rap on Jimmer that he can’t dribble is a myth because of the ball handling
trouble he had his 1st year, he has fixed that but the parrots
continue to repeat it. Jimmer is a load—he’s fast and smart. He can lose
anybody of the dribble. He’s a great player, just turn him loose and see.
I see his Steve Nash type point guard
skills—a very smart player who sees the floor and can create for himself and
others. Again this myth that he can’t dribble and is just a pure spot up
shooter is the bull (no pun intended) that just keeps getting repeated by the
On defense, they want to isolate and pick on
Jimmer—good! That’s just what the coach should want. That rarely works. It
takes the other team out of it’s offense and 4 players stand around watching
somebody isolate on Jimmer so they can get a 15 foot jump shot—we’ll live with
that—no ball movement, 4 players standing around watching somebody go 1-on1,
shooting jumpers—sounds like a King’s offensive plan, lol!
4 days, 20 hours ago on A final conversation with Jimmer Fredette
Consider this possibility:
It is just possible that, because of player
abuse by coaches Smart and Malone, we haven’t seen the real Jimmer yet.
The 2 years of abuse under Keith Smart are
well known—Jimmer plays a good game and gets 3 DNPs as his reward.
Malone stiffed Jimmer in the very first
preseason game—he was the only King with a DNP. I’m sure this was a real blow
to Jimmer—after 2 years of abuse by Keith Smart, Jimmer must have felt like he
was finally out of jail, and now it’s like—oh no, the nightmare continues!
Then, Jimmerput up 21 in the 2nd half against
Phoenix in preseason, then back on the bench.
He hardly played at all until they traded
away Vasquez, then he got into the rotation as backup PG.
The normal rotation was that Jimmer would
play the 1st 6 minutes of the 2nd and 4th
Malone however, always rotated Jimmer in as
the last substitution. The rotations would start at the 4 minute mark in the 1st
quarter and by the end of the quarter all the player would be rotated except
Jimmer—a clear message of no confidence from Malone (This looks like Malone saying:
I don’t want to play you Jimmer, but Isaiah needs a breather.).
Then, if Jimmer made any mistakes, or, the
bench was losing ground in the game, Malone would yank Jimmer 2 or 3 minutes
into the 2nd quarter, rather than allowing Jimmer to play his 6
minutes—another message of no confidence by Malone.
The exact same pattern would be repeated in
the 4th quarter—2 more slaps in the face to Jimmer—last man rotated
in, and yanked if he made any mistakes or missed a couple of shots.
Or, if the game was close, Malone would not
play Jimmer at all in the 2nd half and Isaiah Thomas would play the
entire 2nd half—again, another vote of no confidence in Jimmer by
And remember, all this on a last place team! You’re in last place
and you have to rush Isaiah back in—you can’t afford any player development
So, my point is just this: It is clear that
Jimmer was abused by Malone psychologically, you just can’t argue the point—it is
a fact. It is inconceivable to me that Michael Malone could be so obtuse to
wreck his player like this. It’s like kicking your own dog—why would you want
to ruin the confidence of a player? Apparently the Kings are just too stupid to
understand what they were doing to Jimmer? So, it becomes a self-fulfilling
prophecy—Jimmer is treated like a dog by Malone and tends to play like a
shell-shocked victim of post-traumatic stress disorder. It seems clear to me
watching Jimmer play that he was tentative and not playing with confidence. So,
I think possibly Jimmer haters see this inept stumblebum and say he obviously
can’t play in the NBA, and Jimmer lovers put his performance in context of the
coaching abuse by Malone and Smart, and say: this kid just needs to get his mojo back and
the real Jimmer will emerge. It’s possible—we’ll see.
GO JIMMER—YOU’RE FREE AT LAST!

Thank god Jimmer wasn't guarding Harden last night--he might have put up 50!
Good thing we have Bricklemore MacRobinson and Outlaw to hold him to 40 (Jimmer can't guard SGs, you know!)

BOYCOTT THE KINGS
Step back and look at the bigger picture.
Jimmer haters obsessing about his defense......
The kings are in last place—they stink. So,
they have bigger problems than obsessing so much about they can’t play Jimmer
because of his defense.
HELLO! Is that you Grant? He is the NBA
leading 3-point % leader! HELLO!
You’re in last place.
He put us 24 in half a game the one time he
got any minutes.
Play him 42 minutes and see if maybe he
puts up 48.
You’re a horsebleep team in last place.
And you think Jimmer’s defense is an issue.
You’re an idiot Malone.
1 week, 2 days ago on Will Jimmer Fredette see reduced minutes for the Sacramento Kings?
more nonsense from dabychop.
Jimmer is a playmaker 1st and foremost. His natural position is PG, not SG. If you can't see that, I can't help you! You're hopeless.
Guy gets to play half of a game once all year, puts up 24, and we have to listen to you caomplain about he can't get through screens/ Wake up Grant!
1 week, 3 days ago on Will Jimmer Fredette see reduced minutes for the Sacramento Kings?
You are wrong sir:
Isaiah is shooting 37.2% from 3-point line.
League average is 36%.
So he is at league average.
Jimmer leads the league at 49%--no comparison.
Who cares where his 3-point % ranks in relation to other point guards--3 pointers are not sensitive to position--IT is average 3-point shooter. Consistently average for 3 years.
stop bsing about this please.
Who cares where he ranks vs Wall and Irving--they are low % shooters like Isaiah.
And another thing—how can Malone be so
obtuse to treat any human being this way?????????????
Jimmer scores 24 in half a game and wins
the game for the kings in New York and then gets 4 minutes and a DNP in the
next 2 games. And MM (Moron Malone) in bragging about how great it was for him
to win the game in front of his mom and dad! Screw you and your mom and dad. Are you
kidding—jimmer won the game.
And then MM gives this insincere moronic
statement that he texted Jimmer to tell him he still believes in him!!!!
There has to be something wrong with this
organization to allow this abusive treatment.
1 week, 4 days ago on Will Jimmer Fredette see reduced minutes for the Sacramento Kings?
And it seems sooooooooo crazy. Boob Malone
plays Isaiah Thomas 42 minutes and Jimmer 6 minutes all year until now. For
what? They’re in last place.
Apparently the kings “brain trust”, and of
course I use the term loosely, thinks Jimmer is a bust. But, if they had a
brain, don’t you think they would have given him some extended playing time
just to hedge their bet in case he goes somewhere else and exposes them as
idiots? Which they are!

1 week, 4 days ago on CK Press Box Report: Sacramento Kings 105, Boston Celtics 98
That’s an interesting idea you have about Cousins being the
culprit—does anybody else know anything about this? Whether it is true or not.
It would make sense that this Malone is scared to death,
knowing he will get fired if he gets on the wrong side of Cousins because
Ranadive has his nose up Demarcus’s backside.
I mean Cousins has so many weaknesses in his game:
1.Always out of position on defense.
2.Jacking up long 2 point shots with 18 seconds
left on the shot clock—which is possibly the worst shot in basketball besides a
half court hook shot (and then those 2 morons Jerry Reynolds and Grant Napear
praising Cousins shooting---scheesch it’s pathetic their incompetence).
3.Can’t pass—shoots 99.9% of the time he gets the
ball in the low post. No clue that hitting , oh say a 49% 3-point shooter for a
three (that would be Jimmer) would be a good move, mix it up a little. Demoralize the defense.
4.Surly, thuggish behavior intimidating his
teammates and coaches—a terrible image for the community to have this creepo as
the face of the franchise.
Besides, Cousins being the volume shooter and shooting under
50% from the Center position is a formula for a low team shooting percentage. I
don’t think much of Malone’s acumen.
So, it is quite possible that Malone is
intimidated into not playing Jimmer if Cousins disapproves. Malone never criticizes Cousins poor play
because he knows who will lose that confrontation.
Any other thoughts on this?

Wrong Mad Dam
Isaiah Thomas is not a good shooter—look at the facts. His
3-point FG% is at the league average and has been all 3 years in the league.
His overall FG% is below average. So why do you say, quote: “his percentages
are high”? That is not true. Do you get your information from listening to
those radio morons: Grant Napear, C-Dave and Uncle Jerry Reynolds? I mean come on,
you can’t just throw untrue crap out there that is not true—unless you own a
microphone, like the radio bozos. Oh, and by the way, Jimmer leads the league
in 3-point FG % 49% vs 36% for your hero, IT.
Well daddy chopped liver, it's like this: Malone's team plays with a 2% disadvantage in shooting percentage relative to their opponents.
. I believe the reason for this is because Isaiah dribbles
too much and plays 1-on-1. IT is dribbling around looking for his shot instead
of moving the ball and playmaking. The result of this kind of offense is that
the team doesn’t get easy points off playmaking and moving the ball. Almost all shots become contested shots.
@Mad Dam @TABDOG
You're giving Malone too much credit when you say he sees something we don't.
I say it's just the opposite--we see something Malone can't!
Stay tuned next year when he finds a home.
I voted with my feet—they called me to renew
my season tickets and I told them to shove it—I am not ever going to a Kings
game again because of their disgraceful treatment of Jimmer.
I was so excited when idiot Keith Smart was
gone, I drove all the way to Oakland to see Jimmer in the 1st
preseason game—and this ahole Malone stuck him with a DNP. I have not been to a
game all year—I have sold all my tickets in Stubhub for pennies on the dollar.

1 week, 6 days ago on Jimmer Fredette talks NBA trade deadline and future with Sacramento Kings
Jimmer plays half the game in New York and
scores 24. The only reason Malone played him even that much is he got 15 points
in the 1st 6 minutes he played. Then to show him how much he
believes in him, Malone gives him 4 minutes in the next game. And McCallum
plays 11 minutes! There should be a special place in basketball hell for a
horrible coach like Malone. PLAYER ABUSE!
There was an old expression when I was in the
Marine Corps: They crap on you, then kick you cause you stink. It’s amazing
that this poor kid hasn’t developed a stutter the way he has been abused by
this horsebleep organization. If course Jimmer is tentative when he plays—just like
a kicked dog. It’s disgraceful!
I heard the morning radio idiots going after
him: Jimmer is supposedly so bad on defense that “Crawford went right afer him”—end
of story to these morons. Crawford finished 4 for 10—40% that is a good result
for the Kings. A good coach would know that the game is strategy and counter
strategy. If they want to isolate on Jimmer—GOOD! Let Crawford shoot all the
low yield 2-point jumpers he wants—that is what you want him to do.
Also, if the defense crowds Jimmer, use that
against them—scrape him off screens and let him create, or pick and roll. This
is an opportunity. Instead this moron coach Malone runs his 1-dimensional one-on-one
specialist teachers pet IT back out her for 42 minutes to get his 20 and the
Kings have a 2% disadvantage to their opponents because they don’t get high
percentage shots that an offense that moves the ball gets.
Free Jimmer from this terrible organization!
