Default Jimmer Fredette is hard to watch

Watching the Kings game and his man gets by him with ease, he blows defensive assignments and waves for the ball every time on offense... I'm sure his teammates love playing with him

He jacks up a lot of bad shots (and misses) and when he does occasionally have a good look, he misses that too. He's got a long waaaaay to go (needs to watch JJ Redick play).

I thought Sacramento would be good, but I guess I underestimated how bad Westphal was doing and how disconnected everything was. I think he's good tho. He obviously needs to play in a more open team. He's clearly a bad defender, but as long as he actually tries (and not just says he is) then I think, from seeing him, he's not too bad defensively. Should maybe not be playing on this team. They have no 3 and Honeycutt has played 4minutes and been sent to the D-League...they don't know what they're doing, it seems.

He's in a bad situation.. He's playing with a bunch of thuggish chuckers so he has to play a passive role on that team. With Thorton, Evans, Cousins, etc, there's no room for him even being remotely aggressive.

He needs to gtfo of Sacramento

He is hard to watch. We never get to see any Sacramento games.

I think he on the wrong team.

I watched the Kings games and it seems that nobody on Kings don't want to share ball, they just want score the points than learn how to play together.

So for he's nothing like what I thought he'd be. I mean, even if the situation is bad, this guy can't even pass the ball. He's a willing passer, but his passes are so weak that they're always stolen. He always gets in trouble when he dribbles, takes terrible shots and doesn't even make them or open looks.

I mean, those were supposed to be his strengths. He actually looked great in the first preseason game (7/11 for 21 pts). Now he's garbage.

Watch him in his latest post game interview. Dude looks/sounds like he's about to cry. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7u5WxBx43PE

I don't think he ever wanted to be here tbh and is probably suffering from only-white-guy-on-the-team syndrome.

the whole team is hard to watch. they're one of the worst team work teams in the league by far. even Tyreke looks awful, dude can't drive anymore whatsoever, and is getting his shot blocked left and right. hell he could be the most blocked shot player in the league right now. dude looks way out of shape or something is seriously wrong with his game, even if he put up good numbers in 2~ games he's been awful for the most part....

and jimmer to me has been just a streaky shooter. nothing more, nothing less. definitely nothing special that i've seen in any other aspect since i don't see too much quickness or handle.

its disappointing since i was really hoping to see this team be a run and gunning surprise team.

Consider that good fortune. The Kings are harder to watch than Jimmer is.

Hopefully that changes as the season goes on.

The waving his arms thing is annoying. I've noticed that too. Everybody hates playing with people like that - on any level.
