Yesterday, Big T (Thurl Bailey) came to Timpanogos, my high school, to help us with basketball. He said when he was growing up there was no such thing as being “average”, he was better than that. Then he helped probably 10 people with shooting.
He told us that when he was at NC State, they brought Michael Jordan through and showed him the facilities, and said he was a good basketball player. He said they had no idea in the world that he would e the greatest ever to play the game.
Anyways my point was when he was talking about a Not-So-Famous Jimmer Fredette. He said there is no doubt in his mind he will do good at the NBA level. He said people are worried about his defense, but most PGs aren’t good at defense. He said Jimmer has the will power and WILL get better at his defense. Thurl said people that say he won’t do good in the NBA is crazy, the kid can score on anybody. ANYBODY!!!
Now, I just thought you might like reading this, and does what he said change your opinion on Jimmer, or not?
