Found March 18, 2012 on Larry Brown Sports:
Basketball genius and hardcore Kings fan Tom Ziller was spouting some insight on Jimmer Fredette Sunday morning when he pointed out something pretty interesting: The outstanding basketball statistical site 82games.com for some reason calls Jimmer Fredette “Jimmy.” We have no idea if this was done on purpose out of defiance, or just accidentally, but it’s pretty hilarious. Jimmer developed a superstar reputation playing at BYU, and his unique name is a big part of his appeal. He’s like a Cher or Kobe when it comes to being identified by one name, so it’s pretty funny to see someone butcher it. As for Jimmer’s disappointing rookie season, Ziller was pretty critical saying Fredette needs to do a better job getting open instead of complaining that plays aren’t run for him. You can read his entire commentary on his excellent Twitter feed.

Kings buyout J.J. Hickson

Two years ago, the Cleveland Cavaliers wouldn't deal J.J. Hickson for Amare Stoudemire.  Last year, he was dealt to Sacramento for Omri Casspi.  Now, the Kings have reached a buyout with the forward, making him a free agent.

Kings out execute Wolves in 2nd half; Kings win 115-99

There are very few games, especially when it's been a bad team, where the write-ups are really fun to write. One of those reasons is that recaps enforce the idea of recall of what happened that, especially in retrospect, why the game ended up with the outcome that it ended up with. This is one of those games where it seemed like the Kings knew they were going to win, and figured...

J.J. Hickson bought out, Celtics probably interested

You may now commence laughing at the Sacramento Kings, who surrendered Omri Casspi and a first-round draft choice this summer in return for 35 disappointing games of J.J. Hickson.The Kings bought out Hickson’s contract on Monday, making the 23-year old a free agent assuming he clears waivers (as Paul Flannery warns, since he’s a 23-year old with a teeny contract, he might not...

Honeycutt only averages one point per game this season, and finished tonight’s contest with just the...

Kings Waive J.J. Hickson

The Kings have officially waived J.J. Hickson.

JJ Hickson is waived; I also don't care about that dang draft pick

I know this will seem a bit out of the ordinary to talk about with what I typically write about these days (hate Tyreke Evans, nod judiciously over Cuz's improvement and hype up any other player who actually hustles and runs an actual NBA play) so admittedly I realize this is above my paygrade. But since when do I give a *insert preferred profane remark here* about such nonsense...

Turiaf, Hickson among available bigs

The trade deadline has passed, but another big transaction deadline is coming up this week.  That's the deadline to sign players and have them be eligible to make a postseason roster.  The Spurs have reportedly found their back up point guard, but still have room for at least one more player (two if they don't sign Eric Dawson for the rest of the season).  In the last...

Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) March 19, 2012 Hickson and the Celtics have been linked before so don't be surprised if Boston signs him to add some depth to their front court.
