After inexplicably being shelved for two consecutive games, ******* Sacramento head coach Keith Smart played Jimmer Fredette for an entire four minutes during the Kings 106-99 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night at the Sleep Train Arena. Fredette, a 23-year-old who was taken out of Brigham Young University by the Milwaukee Bucks with the 10th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, averaged 7.6 points, 1.8 assists and 1.2 rebounds in a mere 18.6 minutes of action during his rookie season.

  • I am an avid, loyal kings fan. I am also African American, but the diservice that head coach Keith Smart is paying not only to Kings ownership, but to Kings fans by toying with Jimmer Fredette and his inconsistent minutes has reached a boiling point for myself. Ok so Keith, one minute Aaron Brooks is your guy, then He disappears. Jimmer becomes the guy, but wait then Isiah becomes your guy. Jimmers offensive efficiency numbers are in the top 3 in the NBA. But the way this Ignorant Keith Smart plays with his minutes, how could any young player in the NBA succeed. Ok so here is a question Keith....Your team once again has almost the worst record in the NBA, but you toy with your lottery pick's minutes. I am a loyal kings fan that because of the ignorance and ineptness of Keith Smart, I will no longer purchase tickets or watch the Kings
  • You are 100% right. I of the best players has to set on the bench.Keith Smart plays his color that easy to see. Please trade him or get a coach its as simple as that.ceauburn AL.
