but Jimmer is just playing at a different level than most of the competition out there. I don't know if this is a result of Utah and TCU not having guys that can effectively guard him, or just the fact that he is just that much better than the competition around him.
I feel he can still progress as a passer and a defender, but in the NBA who gives a rat's yewt about defense anymore? Their bone-headed commissioner thinks points bring in the green. If there is a lack of stocky shooting guards out there to come off the bench and require a team to commit a player to perimeter defense, and if there was a team with a need for that they'd take him in the 2nd round for sure.
He's got NBA range, has a quick release and moves and shoots well off of screens.
If Jimmer leaves this year for the draft our success as a team next year is going to fall on Jackson, Noah and Abouo. I think that Davies could have a huge impact as well, but losing Haws to a mission definitely takes out our depth.
We'd better hope Jimmer stays, I think that he would anyway but he'd be nuts not to start thinking about it.
If he stayed he'd be in the top 10 players for Player of the Year (he probably already is this year), but back to back tourney appearances would really help his stock so long as he didn't get hurt.
Hades, if Jose Calderon or whatever his Spanish flopper trash name is can be a point in the NBA Jimmer could too if he really works hard off the court and trains to be able to defend speed @ the point that exists in pro-hoops.
It'd just be a shame if we can win a pair of games in the tourney (I really think we just got to get that monkey off the back and conjure up some old-school magic to maybe do some damage deep into March).
GREAT YEAR TO BE A COUGAR!
