Jimmer Fredette

  1. It’s OK if there’s no mania behind Jimmer

    “The first time he didn’t play [on Feb. 2 against Portland], people were calling the paper and pitching their theories,” said Jason Jones, the Kings’ beat writer for The Sacramento Bee. “People don’t want to believe that he might not be ready to play. They want to believe Keith has it in for him.” The…

  2. Wednesday And-1 links: Kobe’s black facemask disappears

    Mar 7, 2012, 11:03 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Kobe Bryant in a black facemask was an idea that died on his 1-6 shooting start Tuesday night. Not that he got a lot better…

  3. Winderman: Sacramento arena win just first step for Kings

    Feb 27, 2012, 3:53 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    The victory by the Sacramento Kings over a new arena and long-term franchise stability is an encouraging one for small markets throughout the NBA. The Kings, thanks to the efforts of Kevin Johnson, the nation’s best ball-handling mayor, now will have a stable home for years to come. But a building only ensures residency, not…

  4. Griffin, Irving headline pool of players for Rising Stars game

    Feb 8, 2012, 2:38 PM EDT

    Rookie John Wall, of the Washington Wiza

    The NBA is trying to change the fortunes of what used to be the overlooked and uninteresting All-Star weekend Rookie Challenge (where the rookies played the sophomores). This year TNT’s Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal are picking teams playground style (Team Shaq and Team Chuck) from a pool of rookies and sophomores — and the…

  5. Monday And-1 links: Comparing the Knicks and Giants

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Stat of the day, courtesy Tim Reynolds of the AP: Since the Knicks last won a playoff game, the Giants have won eight. Ice Cube…

  6. Weekend Observations 2.4.12: Where corn don’t grow

    Feb 4, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Each weekend we bring you 25 random observations from the NBA week that was.    1. Blake Griffin is not human. 2. Denver’s a really great team this season, they’re just not so impressive you know you can count on them in the WCF. The lack of star power is going to continue to be…

  7. Friday And-1 links: Even the Mavs realize OKC is very good

    Feb 3, 2012, 11:25 AM EDT

    Kendrick Perkins, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Dallas’ Jason Terry says what we all already knew: Oklahoma City is the team to beat in the West. Lou Williams and the art of…

  8. NBA Power Rankings: Top spot now Thunderstruck

    Jan 30, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Kris Humphries

    The top three teams remain the same, just trading places, because they are the three best teams in the league right now. But all three also have long road trips coming up, which should test them. 1. Thunder (16-3, last week ranked No. 3). They are “only” fifth in point-per-possession differential in the league, but…

  9. Jimmer Fredette trying to find his way, Kings not helping much

    Jan 28, 2012, 8:02 AM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette, Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose

    It’s been a rough rookie year for Jimmer Fredette. In college he was a pure scorer who could do no wrong, racking up big numbers in the face of double teams while setting his teammates. His team won and he was the Golden Child. In the NBA, with its longer defenders, he is shooting just…

  10. Jimmer Fredette gets first start Tuesday in Philadelphia

    Jan 10, 2012, 7:45 PM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette , Kurt Thomas, Nolan Smith

    Jimmer fever has finally reached the starting lineup. Jimmer Fredette got his first start with the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday, due to Marcus Thornton suffering a bruised thigh. He had been averaging 24 minutes a game off the bench but played almost the entire first quarter of this one. Fredette has shown potential but is…

  11. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Portland says they are contenders, too

    Jan 4, 2012, 3:02 AM EDT

    Thunder, Trail Blazers, Nazr

    What you missed while Iowa was the center of the political world for a night… Bulls 76, Hawks 74: This ugly but exciting contest was our Game of the Night. Portland 103, Oklahoma City 93: Portland wants you to know they are contenders, too. Or they at least are starting to look like it early…

  12. Baseline to baseline recaps: Kevin Durant is an assassin

    Dec 30, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder

    What you missed while watching an octopus pick the BCS matchups…. Lakers 99, Knicks 82: We broke this down as our game of the night. Thunder 104, Mavericks 102: This was easily the best game the Mavericks have played this season. The ball movement was back, the clever veteran plays were there. Delonte West said…

  13. NBA Season Preview: Sacramento Kings

    Dec 15, 2011, 5:30 AM EDT

    jimmer-kings-preview

    Last season: 24-58, second to last in the West. Head Coach: Paul Westphal Key Departures: Beno Udrih, Omri Casspi Key Additions: Jimmer Fredette, Chuck Hayes, John Salmons, J.J. Hickson Best case scenario: Continued development of Tyreke Evans and DeMarcus Cousins, and dramatic improvement in the team’s offense. The Kings will need to see some serious…

  14. Jamal Crawford rules out Knicks, narrows choices to Portland and Sacramento

    Dec 14, 2011, 6:26 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    Jamal Crawford has narrowed his free agent choice to two teams, according to multiple reports. Portland and Sacramento have emerged as the leading candidates to land Crawford’s services, after the Knicks and Pacers were reportedly also in the chase. It’s unclear if the Knicks made an official offer, but Crawford did reject one worth $10…

  15. Kings sign Chuck Hayes to a modest four-year, $21 million deal

    Dec 9, 2011, 4:07 PM EDT

    Chuck Hayes

    The post-lockout free agency period has seen teams throw gobs of money at Caron Butler, Tyson Chandler, and Nene, but out in Sactown they’re showing some impressive restraint. The Kings aren’t in any rush to substantial salary commitments to their books, but in their efforts to build up their roster and meet the league’s payroll…

  16. Video: Jimmer Fredette is a better dancer than Isaiah Thomas

    At his charity event, Donte Green decided to haze the rookies a little, give them a taste of what they are missing out on with the NBA season. He made Jimmer Fredette and Isaiah Thomas compete in a dance off. Jimmer wins. And he should. By a mile. Thanks to SBN for posting this.

  17. David Stern could learn a thing or two from Kings fans

    Oct 13, 2011, 10:20 AM EDT

    *Jul 24 - 00:05*

    I’d say I’m surprised but I’m not. Tuesday at about mid-day I saw my first indications that something was brewing in Sacramento – a seemingly innocuous tweet from Sacramento Kings fan Amy Hyden (@sacgirl88) to G/F Donte’ Greene about setting up an exhibition game: @dontegreeneCOS hey Donte, Is there any way you can set up…

  18. Video: Jimmer Fredette drops 27 in summer exhibition

    Sep 24, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    jimmer-kings

    Jimmer Fredette has yet to play in the NBA, but that doesn’t mean he can’t hold exhibition games just like the league’s biggest stars have all summer. In this one, appropriately if not modestly-named Jimmer’s All-Stars, Fredette put on a show for fans at Brigham Young University, putting up 27 points. Some of which, of…

  19. You haven’t seen Kyrie Irving this summer at Cavs request

    Sep 23, 2011, 5:07 PM EDT

    Irving stands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft in Newark

    Some of the big names of the 2011 NBA Draft have had a busy summer. Josh Selby was turning a few heads at the Impact Basketball Series in Vegas the last couple weeks. Jimmer Fredette was throwing his own rookie game in Utah. Derrick Williams has been working out with Kobe Bryant. Jonas Valanciunas has…

  20. Rookies not part of NBA 2K12 to start. Thanks lockout.

    Sep 7, 2011, 4:48 PM EDT

    NBA 2K12

    Now the NBA lockout is screwing up your video games. While players of the NBA 2K12 video game will be able to reach into the past and pull in 15 legends of the game, they cannot go into the future. Because of licensing rights, rookies will not be part of the original release of NBA…

  21. Jimmer Fredette, other rookies to play in Utah showcases

    Aug 23, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Gonzaga v Brigham Young

    Few players are as screwed by this NBA lockout as the first round picks of the recent draft. They know where they will play next season, but this summer they get none of the NBA coaching, no summer league, no NBA facilities in which to workout and practice. They don’t even know how much they…

  22. Tyreke Evans wants to set up Kings practices during lockout

    Aug 12, 2011, 7:55 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    Amar’e Stoudemire is doing it with the Knicks. Zach Randolph is doing it with the Grizzlies. Now Tyreke Evans may do it with the Kings — set up practices during the lockout. That’s what he told Cowbell Kingdom during a podcast. “I was thinking about that, calling some of the players up, trying to get…

  23. Winderman: Why Fisher, Fredette, 11 other players get named in NBA suit

    Aug 2, 2011, 8:12 PM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette

    They are, for now, the Lockout 13, the 13 players selected by the NBA to be listed as defendants in the class action complaint for declaratory relief filed Tuesday by the league with the United States District Court Southern District of New York. But why those 13? Because of union status. And proximity to the…

  24. Tyreke Evans wants his role defined in Sacramento

    Jul 31, 2011, 10:29 AM EDT

    Paul Westphal, Tyreke Evans

    This is another problem that can in part be chalked up to the lockout. Tyreke Evans remains the guy that will make the King’s offense go next year — he’s finally healthy again — and now he’s got an interesting potential backcourt mate in just drafted Jimmer Fredette. Except, Evans and Fredette basically play the same…

  25. Isaiah Thomas’ journey made into documentary

    Jul 26, 2011, 10:38 AM EDT

    Washington v North Carolina

    Isaiah Thomas was selected No. 60 — the very last pick, Mr. Irrelevant — in the NBA draft. He fell that far because there are questions — he’s small for an NBA point guard (5’10″) and is not and explosive athlete at a position where the NBA is loaded with amazing athletes. That said, he…
