Jimmer goes 16-20 at NBA Combine

Post by BYURobert on Sun Jun 05, 2011 4:25 pm

Thought some on here might be interested in how Jimmer did at the NBA combine. The combine consisted of two days of workouts and athletic testing. The first day Fredette worked out with the point guards. The drills consisted of shooting, 3-on-2 and dribbling. Fredette went 16-for-20 from NBA 3-point range during the shooting drill on Thursday.

The second day was physical, with athletic testing which included standing vertical, three-quarter court sprint, lateral quickness and other tests. While most of the results haven’t been released yet, Fredette measured an 8 foot, 1/2 inch standing vertical and a 6-4 1/2 wingspan.

Adrian Wojnarowksi, of Yahoo Sports, tweeted, “Just left … Pre-Draft camp, where GM said Jimmer Fredette was the most impressive interview I’ve ever done.”

Ford spoke with Kawhi Leonard and Malcolm Thomas of San Diego State, asking them who they would rather guard between Fredette and Kemba Walker (SDSU played them both this year) and reported they both said they would rather guard Walker any day of the week.

Jimmer graduated one year too early for anybody here to see him.

We had our own three point shooters to look at Wink

What are the Vegas odds on the Jazz taking him? He can shoot lights out, and already travels at an NBA level.

He better go to a team that knows how to set picks and screens if he wants to excel in the NBA. Even exceptional shooters like Jason Terry can struggle if the picks aren´t effective...

That 16/20...

Was that shooting just one ball at a time or a ball with each hand at the same time?

Oh man, these BYU people don't really think we care about ANY of their players do they? They are going to be as bad as Zag fan.

Had the Jimmer post been on any MWC board, the response would be, shall we say, "different."

FYI: 90% chance this "BYURobert" guy is not a BYU fan.

There is a mentally deranged individual on the MWC forums who likes to create monikers under a "<insert school here> Robert" format, and post like he is a huge fan of the school, when really he is just a bandwagon troll.

He started out as UNLV Robert, then became TCU Robert, and I guess now he is posting on all the WCC forums under BYU Robert.

Why would someone do that? I have no idea, other than the thought that if you are on SSI disability, you have to fill your time somehow.

(returning to lurk mode and leaving your board to the Portland fans to post).

Thanks for the post. Maybe it's just me...

But "posting" sounds a lot better than "lurking"

The second sounds kinda creepy Cool

From the Bill Simmons Draft Diary:

8:30 -- Whether that Jimmer pick works or not, can't we do Hard Knocks or 24/7 with the Kings next year? Jimmer, Tyreke, DeMarcus Cousins, Pooh Jeter, Omri Casspi, the Maloofs going broke, Mayor Kevin Johnson going for a new stadium … you're not watching that show?

A Pooh shout out! And really the dirty joke potential with that teams with guys nicknamed Pooh, Boogie and Jimmer? Almost TOO easy....
