Sacramento Kings' Rookie Jimmer Fredette CAN Dunk
If you haven't heard of Jimmer Fredette, you will.
The Sacramento Kings rookie PG/SG took college basketball by storm last year, leading the nation in scoring 28.9 points per game for Brigham Young University. He earned the title of National Player of the Year by winning the Wooden Award and every other major Player of the Year honor.
Most critics see Jimmer the same way they saw Orlando Magic guard J.J. Redick when he entered the league, and some say it will take several years (the same as Redick) in order for Jimmer to see significant minutes on the court.
Like numerous players before him, there are a lot of question marks about Jimmer's game as he prepares to play in his first NBA season. Can he play at the NBA level? Can he play defense? Will he be able to score like he did in college, especially against bigger, faster and more talented players?
But one question stands out more than the others. It is the one question that is key in answering all of the other questions mentioned above. If this one question is answered with an undeniable 'yes', then all of the other questions about Jimmer's game can also be answered in the affirmative.
That key question: Can Jimmer dunk?
