Jimmer Fredette was recently waived by the San Antonio Spurs, his fourth team in four years in the NBA. Despite huge success in college at BYU where he averaged almost 30 points per game, Jimmer hasn't been able to found success in the pros.
Michael Lee of Yahoo recently asked people around the league why Jimmer has had such struggles in the NBA. One assistant candidly said:
“Jimmer thinks everybody is stupid. He thinks everybody needs to come and just turn over their offense and let him shoot it anytime he wants. That's not how the league works.
He won't adjust his game for [the NBA]. “He'll tell you, ‘This is what I did at BYU.' Well, BYU, that's a long time ago.”
Only time will tell if Jimmer Fredette can make it out of NBA purgartory and fine his way onto the court.
