   2011 NBA Draft Diary
2011-06-25

Pick 10: Without ever really citing why, Jon Barry decides that Sacramento - picking here as a result of the aforementioned three team deal - should take Jimmer Fredette. It turns out that he's right - they do.

Personally, I do not see the attraction with Jimmer. The thing he's best at is hitting tough shots, but unless someone is going to encourage him to take tough shots, this isn't as big of a virtue as it sounds. Fredette can hit open shots too, of course, but you don't pick spot-up shooters at #10. And not to put too fine a point on it, but what are the chances that Fredette is ever as good as Beno Udrih, the man who he will now try to replace? It is certainly not a given. Udrih is a good NBA player.

Furthermore, Sacramento now boasts Jimmer, Tyreke Evans, Donte Greene, John Salmons, Marcus Thornton and DeMarcus Cousins on the same team. Jason Thompson and Omri Casspi may never get another field goal attempt.

The story early this week was that Sacramento were talking about dealing the #7 pick to San Antonio in exchange for Tony Parker and Richard Jefferson. Instead, they use and Beno Udrih to land John Salmons and Jimmer Fredette. They tried to land two former all-stars, and instead landed two probable backups.

Jimmer Fredette has Dwyane Wade's jaw.





Heather Cox interviews Jimmer's brother, T.J, while Stu Scott speaks of simpler times when he and Jimmer would play at a local prison, just to get a game. Stu Scott mentioned that Jimmer scored 44 in his first such prison game. Who keeps score in a prison game?

Jimmer Fredette - Jimmer's most endearing quality is his ability to regularly hit 30 foot jumpshots. Unless you're not human, you surely recognise the attraction in 30 foot jumpshots. 24 foot jumpers are boring and samey - when you've seen Ray Allen hit 2,300 of them, then you've seen them all. But 30 footers? Those are exciting. Those draw vowel sounds. People laugh when you hit those. Those are fun shots.

But the reason Jimmer regularly hits 30 footers is because he regularly takes 30 footers. And as much as we may wish to pin that on the otherwise sedentary BYU offense, the fact is that he just takes bad shots. The turnaround contested 20 footers with 25 seconds still on the clock are not Noah Hartsock's fault.

Jimmer's shot selection is really, really bad. Let's call it like it is.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
