"The Jimmer gets the nod vs 76ers tonight"
Tonight vs the Philadelphia 76ers the long awaited start of Jimmer Fredette is finally here Kings fans wait no more. Fredette led the nation in scoring last year at BYU as well as winning National Player of the Year honors. In the early going of this season Fredette has impressed offensively which was expected, but still needs to tighten up defense. Im sure the ratings for the game tonight will be awfully high being that Jimmer is the biggest thing since Chris Webber to come through Sacremento. So far this season the rook is averaging 9 ppg in nearly 24 minutes of action a night something he definetly is not used to. I expect a decent game out of the Jimmer, look at his assist to turnover ratio tonight it seems that most of this years rookie point guards like to turn it over. Another key note is that Fredette is shooting a poor 29% from long distance, but is making sure to connect on his FTA shooting 85% from the charity stripe. I expect it to be an exciting game between two young NBA teams in the end i like the 76ers to win this game because the way they control the game defensively.
