Last summer we here at NerdJockBlog became infatuated with Jimmer Fredette at The Basketball Tournament. Jimmer Fredette was king of the ‘Elam Ending’ and was very entertaining. Being in a college basketball town we knew who Jimmer was at BYU. It was interesting to see what kind of pro player The Jimmer has grown into. Dennis and I last saw Jimmer riding pine at a Pacers vs. Knicks game at Banker’s Life. Kurt Rambis had put Jimmer in the dog-house for some reason and Jimmer was being mocked by some crazed Knicks fans. Fast-forward to 2019 and Jimmer has become the star of the Chinese Basketball Association. Taking the torch from Starbury and becoming the league’s leading scorer. Here is a highlight clip from a recent game where he dropped 48 on the Monkey Kings. #LetsGoSharks
PLAYERS OF NOTE FOR MONKEY KINGS Isaiah Austin at Center, and former Pacers bust Joe Young.
