Jimmer Fredette: Why a Great Young Man Will Be a Bad Ballplayer
Jimmer Fredette Was College Basketball's Player Of The Year, But Will Not Win Any Awards In The Pros
As his pro career has begun, it is clear that the pressure is rising on Jimmer Fredette. He was drafted in the top ten and ended being a part of the Sacramento Kings. Expectations surround the best scorer in the draft and he will never meet them.
Jimmer is supposed to help Sacramento put points on the board, but there are going to be problems. While Jimmer's range is great, he will not be able to beat athletic defenders in the NBA. Keep in mind, Jimmer is only 6'2" and 195 lbs. He doesn't have much size and a decent defender with a long wing span will neutralize him immediately. I doubt Fredette's ability to create his own shot. He may be lucky to average above ten points off the bench.
One thing is for sure, Jimmer doesn't play defense. He was never a willing defender in college and often had players blow by him. His mind was constantly at the other end of the floor. If he does this in the pros, teams will attack him and he will be a liability. If he can't score or defend what does he add to a team?
Look, Fredette is a great young man. He was a lot of fun to watch and many cheered for him in college. I hope Jimmer proves me wrong, but he has NBA failure and bust written all over him.
