He is really absolutely nothing like Redick and he is pretty damned athletic. I sort of find the Ben Gordon comparison interesting. He could be a modern day Vinnie Johnson on the next level... It wouldn't shock me.
Ben Gordon was a much better player in college.
Jimmer is not going to have four guys getting him shots all game in the pros.
The competition in the tourney is getting better and it shows in the way he has to shoot more and more to put up numbers.
