Found December 17, 2011 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:

Jimmer Fredette, the darling of the 2010-2011 college basketball season, is finally able to showcase his talents in the NBA now that the lockout has ended. The 6'2" guard was taken tenth overall by the Milwaukee Bucks but later traded to the Sacramento Kings. The early word is that he'll come off the bench for the Kings. Opponents will learn quickly that they'll have to respect Jimmer's shooting range. And if they want to learn how to Jimmer, they can check out this clip.

What better way to learn how to do something than from the namesake himself? Here CBS Sacramento's Lisa Gonzales got a quick tutorial. Why anyone would want to Dougie when they can Jimmer instead is beyond me.

12/17/11: Jimmer Fredette Debuts With 21

Kings 96 @ Warriors 107: When I say I don’t watch college basketball, I mean I don’t watch college basketball.  I don’t watch it once a week, or once a month, or when nothing else is on.  I don’t watch college basketball at all, ever… and even I came into tonight’s Kings game very much aware of Jimmer Fredette’s shot-making capabilities.  So, I’m not going to...

Veteran shooting guard?

I was looking at Sacramento's roster, and they currently have Thornton, and Tyreke Evans listed at shooting guard. My question is would anyone have any interest in John Salmons if we could get him without giving up much. He plays decent d, can score in a variety of ways, has playoff experience etc. Would he be a good fit for this Wolves roster. Of course with Barea at shooting...
