    Also I just realized his coach his Paul Westphal. Something tells me he's not going to be worried about his defense.

    Plus, he's getting monster minutes from Kings coach Paul Westphal, who's a Fredette Freak already. The other day in practice, Jimmer was coming up to the hash mark -- 28 feet from the hoop -- when Westphal hollered, "Shoot it!"

    "Why not?" Westphal says. "Every time he shoots it, I think it's going in. It's beautiful and effortless."

    Kerr might have been a better shooter (Although I'm not sure that's actually true), but Jimmer is a much better scorer. He can create his own shot and drive better than Kerr. Kerr has admitted he couldn't create his own shot.

    Kerr was a spot-up shooter. Jimmer gives you that and more. And has 25 foot ranger. Don't know if Kerr had that range (He might have but never set up to take shots from there. Dunno if Jimmer will do that in the NBA either, but in college, he was bombs away.)

    However this won't necessarily stop him from being a good system defender.
    How exactly is he not in shape?
