Re: In Defense of Jimmer:
People are saying how much better Kemba is than Jimmer, but I don't agree... I mean as an NBA prospect that's different, but as a college player... I don't think he's better.
Again, people use the weak conference argument for Kemba, but weak teammates matter just as much. People are gearing to stop Kemba, but not on the level that they are playing Jimmer. And people play Jimmer 30 feet out. They even try to trap him sometimes at half court.
Jimmer is a great player. The one separation between Kemba and someone like Steph Curry is that they were not Srs. So, they maybe could have done that as a Sr, too... but we didn't get to see.
Still, Jimmer, as a college player, was amazing.
And I think he's good in the league, too. Not a star... but a solid offensive option.
