small sample size and its early i know but so many "experts" had jimmers career ending after this year... however so far this season in limited minutes he's shining.

averaging over 7 points and about an assist in 8mpg. is shooting a ridiculous 64% from the field and 50% from 3 point range. and he had 18-2-1 in 10 minutes yesterday! going 7-9 and 3-5 on three pointers.

alot of people had doubts about him last year and most seemed correct as he was pretty brutal in his rookie season and basically glued to the bench... after what hes shown so far anyone think he may actually have a future in this league even as a role player? i really think he could.

I don't know what his future holds. I didn't think Reddick would do very well and he had some poor seasons at first as well. Defense is definitely going to remain an issue for him. My biggest thing is that he should have never been picked that high (while Kawhi Leonard waited)

He'll never live up to expectations, but he could be a solid shooter in this league (basically a short Kover.) The biggest problem is he's on the wrong team for what he brings to the table.

yes the defense is what i feel would ever keep him from being a starter.. but he could be a solid shooter off the bench.. alot like reddick in his recent years

Jimmer can shoot. Can't play any defense, Kobe abused him in the post. He's a good bench player though for now.

I've played against jimmer and have seen him play for years.

But I never saw him as an NBA player, to short, feet are way to slow, no handle, can't get off shots against the longer players.

But truth is, I won't judge him seriously until he goes to a team that isn't packed w retards. Bunch of low iq ball hogs on that team.

In the wrong situation, but Jimmer will make it work. Thats what all the studs do :drool:

Slower perimeter players need a period of adjustment to the speed of the NBA. A couple of summers to work on his conditioning and figuring out how he's going to attack NBA defenses will do him wonders. But he's not going to be a starting SG, ever. NBA wings are too long and tall for him to guard. He needs to play point.

I hope he can find a niche in the league. He's an overall good guy, and a native New Yorker so I'd definitely like to see him succeed. But like everyone else has been saying he's got 2 huge problems, his lack of athleticism, and the team he's on. While he can't overcome the former, hopefully the Kings will trade him or release him, and he can end up in a better situation.

meh i agree. I had him having a better career than Kemba and this season Kemba is proving me wrong.

It's saying something when he's been more valuable in 43 minutes this season than he was in 430 minutes last year. On a team with piss poor shooting, we cannot ignore a a .778 TS% and a guy who's producing a point per minute. More importantly, he's looked like an actual NBA player this season with improved handles and defense

very small sample size, obviosuly, but he's shooting the lights out. I haven't watched him play, but statistically he looks more like a SG than a PG, and that puts him in a bad place since h'es only 6'2.

I expect his FG% to come down, but the question is how much? His 3pt% last year was pretty good for a rookie. If he can bring that up a bit and keep his FG% above 45% thne he should be able to stay around the league for a while, though unless he develops the passing skills he may be stuck as role player/spot-up-shooting-PG for teams whose primary ball handler is their SG or SF (miami for example).


Hopefully he keeps it up.

No. He failed to meet our expectations just like J.J Reddick.

What expectations ? I think everyone was doubting him even b4 the draft and a lot though that taking him 10th was wrong decision :shrug:

Really? Well, Redick was good in College I thought people thought he'd do well. He went as the 11 pick and Jimmer went at 10. They are quite similar.

The Reddik comparisons are off. JJ is much taller, and a far better defender.

Jimmer won't thrive on a roster like Sac. If he were on the Spurs or something, fine. What I am saying is, his career will be as a specialist. He isn't quick enough to create on his own, and needs to be hidden defensively. But if he can land somewhere and asked to only be a floor spacer, he may work out fine.

His father use to bring him upstate in my area and bring him around to the different street ball courts to test him and toughen him up and they would also visit the Mormon churches around here. Even on a street ball cow he gets murdered defensively, but he was pretty much unstoppable when shooting from 10 ft behind the 3 line.

Heck, his dad even brought him to prison to play basketball.

Don't be surprised if la makes a big push for him. Mike d would give anything for him.

not a great game last night but terrible.. led his team in assist put in 13 points and got some solid PT ... good for him. still shooting 57% aswell

I think he will always be on a roster just because he is a great 3 point shooter. I dont ever see him starting, but a 8th 9th guy on a rotation is possible. He needs a better situation to play well. If he is a free agent miami might sign him for minimum and add another shooter

No offense but this is stupid thread. Of course Jimmer has a chance and being a decent role player. He is only 1 year into his career, was taken 10th overall, and already had some very developed skills. I don't think he will ever be a starer b/c i don't think he can handle well enough to be a fulltime PG and at 6'2 that is what he is.

I don't know what your expectation were but JJ is pretty much what i thought he would be and he was a pretty good pick. Here are the guys picked 11th in other draft classes

http://www.mynbadraft.com/nba-draft-picks/11th-overall/110509/


Here is the 2006 draft class

http://www.nba.com/draft2006/board.html

JJ wasn't steal or a great pick at 11 but he was a good value pick.

Jimmer would fit in perfectly on a contender as a shooter off the bench. I mean the dude can ball.. But nothing is going to happen on Sacremento. Just the wrong situation.
