33% for IT. Horrible.
1 week, 4 days ago on Sacramento Kings free Jimmer Fredette
Bold comments but I totally agree. My basketball mind (I'm a HS coach) is perplexed and embarrassed that Jimmer never got a chance while Gunner IT is loved in sactown. Sactown deserved the beat down from Houston last night.
Cowbb - I almost always agree with you, but I disagree with your comments about Thomas and Jimmer. I think Jimmer was never given a true chance to handle the rock, fail, and lead the team like Thomas. I have a couple other theories on the NBA/Refs/Thomas/Jimmer deal that I won't share here. I'm not alone. I asked a basketball genius former college volleyball player and Stanford MBA if he thought Jimmer or IT was better. Without hesitation he said Jimmer? He said, "IT is putrid on defense and has lead our kings to a 33% winning percentage in over 100 games starting." So I wouldn't say IT beat out Jimmer. I'd say the world's two worst coaches in smart and Malone prefer IT over Jimmer for an unknown reason to people with a 80+ IQ.

Also, Kings' websites such as this one will be ghost towns after Jimmer is gone. It's funny how articles about any other Kings only get significant discussion if the topic turns to Jimmer. I'm wishing the best for Jimmer and I wish he had been given 30+ minutes a game for 10+ straight game to see what he could really do.

Kudos to you. I agree with Brody most of the time, but I disagree with him that you are an idiot. I think you are a knowledgable hoops fan and that is cool. Great win for the Kings tonight.

Wrong again, layupman. Sure, Boogie leads the team in steals but many of those are just standing there and the ball comes to him. Others are lazy reaching steals. Boogie doesn't move his feet properly, help others, protect the rim, block or alter shots well, etc--those things are the mark of a good defensive player. I'd love to have a real center on our team like Robin Lopez who does dirty work like boxing out and altering shots.
That's funny that you think McCallum is the best defensive player on the team. He hardly plays, and when he does, he's usually against back-ups.
JT actually is ok on defense. He has some length and helps in the paint.
Under your reasoning, you'd say Richard Sherman sucks because he had only 4 solo tackles and zero interceptions in three post-season games.

@layituplikeaman Wrong. IT is our third best defensive PG, Gray is better on D than Cousins, and DWill is a better defender than Rudy. I'm not saying play those guys all the time, but play them more. The "Big Three" are getting tons of shots and minutes but have lead us to the worst record in the West. Make changes!
I think our best lineup is: Boogie, Acy, Rudy, Jimmer, BMac. DWill gets major forward minutes off bench, IT is back-up gunner guard, Gray plays 12-14 mins, Acy plays a little (terrible hands!!!), and MT and Ray Mc play a few garbage minutes.
No defensive effort or help tonight. This team is a mess. Malone keeps saying defense is King to him but he keeps the same crummy defenders out there for 36 mins a game. I predicts another loss tomorrow at MSG.
Bad loss. IT shot too much. At one point, he was an efficient 10-16. He then went 1-8 over the last quarter or so as he got worn down and fizzled at the end. He ended up 11-24, which is too many shots for a PG. Yes, he got his 30 pts and 8 assists; he did some good. But he monopolizes the ball and plays like he desperately cares about his own offensive stats. It's a team game and we lost again.

The article nor any posters talked about IT's horrible defense. He gets abused in the post, cheats on defense and rarely gets steals (only 1.3 per game), and he's lazy lazy lazy conserving his energy for his endless dribbling and shooting offense. As a longtime Kings fan, I really want a bigger all around PG such as Bledsoe, Lowry, or Marcus Smart. IT is another Mugsy Boges Nate Robinson gadget overmatched little guy.

Airballman - Now please analyze why Jimmer had a better +- than IT last game.

Jimmer played 7.51 tonight and shot only twice. Our whole bench was bad. If Jimmer was given 40 mins like IT, he could have had IT's stats by going 8 for his next 22.
IT 2 pt FG %, 3 pt%, FT %, adj fg% - .484, .373, .865, .509
Jimmer - .473, .476, .933, .560
Let's look at the numbers from January
IT - .467, .327 (48th in NBA among PG), .867, .476 (41st in NBA PG behind future Hall of Famers Brian Roberts and Alexey Shved)
Jimmer - .480, .475, .833, .583 (3rd in NBA PG with 50+ attempts)

Once Jimmer is off the Kings, fans like Layitupman and Zeke will claim that they are glad to be rid of Jimmer's fans. Yet 80% of people will disappear off of Kings message boards and no one will care about the Kings anymore and no one will care to analyze anything.

I'd trade IT for a ham sandwich right now. I'm so tired of his selfish offense and non-existent defense. I want Marcus Smart so we can finally have a real PG.
1 month ago on Is Isaiah Thomas just a good player on a bad team?
I'm ready for Layitupman to blame the loss on Jimmer tonight. I thought we battled hard in there, but IT's terrible defense and his selfishness really hurt the team. 26 shots? Yeah, that's great point guard leadership getting teammates inviolved. Send this gunner to the D league.

IT is a poor shooter, lazy defender, subpar passer, but is good at creating his own shot with his jitterbug quickness. But defenses are paying a little attention to him lately and he's getting schooled. Last year, no one guarded him due to his poor rookie shooting on top of his 42% FG in college. Lawson embarrassed him on Sunday night.
For the 322nd time, Jimmer fans are just looking for Jimmer to play 35 mins a game so we can see what he can do. IT has had his chance and the result is a lot of losses and a lot of 6-17 shooting nights while the Lawsons and Lillards light him up.

Right, Kingtut. Jimmer has a great cheap contract. The problem is that the Kings want to include horrible contracts like Outlaw and MT ($8 mil) but no one wants the bad contracts. NBA.com reported a few weeks ago that many teams are interested in Jimmer and his expiring contract but the Kings are wanting too much via a bloated contract in the deal. The article mentioned Denver and Memphis due to their outside shooting problems.

Yes, Isaiah was good, but he did shoot 31 times shooting 22% from 3's. If Jimmer shot 31 times in a game, imagine how many pts he'd score? No one will ever know. MT kept us in the game tonight and played great.
