Jimmer Fredette starred in Chinese All-Star game, won 3-point contest
Former NBA journeyman Jimmer Fredette enjoyed an extremely successful weekend, featuring in the Chinese Basketball Association’s All-Star weekend.
The former BYU standout played in the annual exhibition game on Sunday, finishing the game as the leading scorer with 32 points. This was a statement performance from a player who has spent the last few years on the fringes of the NBA, waiting for another opportunity to prove himself. Well, he doesn’t have all that much left to prove in China, where the Shanghai Sharks guard has created a buzz similar to that of his NCAA playing days.
As well as featuring in the game, Fredette won the 3-point contest, by scoring 22 points in the final and shooting the final rack without missing:
Whilst Fredette’s outstanding performances overseas will do his NBA hopes no harm, it is unclear whether the 27-year-old will stay in China.
