I’m going to get lots of hate for this. But I know who we need. James Taft Fredette.
Lets face it. The Jazz need a scorer/shooter. And Jimmer would be perfect. I personally hope we do not sign Ronnie Price. His defence is good at times but mostly he results in TO’s or Fouls. Yeah, kills me saying that.
So resign Watson, and draft Jimmer. Jimmer can play mighty mice and run both positions. He is “only 1″ shorter and 8 LBS lighter the Deron Williams”.
Dont bag on his defence. He isn’t the best but he isn’t the worst. He averaged 1.4 steals his senior year. He doesn’t have the best lateral quickness… but did Deron or Watson?
He can space the floor to 40 feet. I mean honestly, he can drain them consistantly* from 35 all day. This would allow more room for Big Al/Favors/Millsap to work inside. Now imagine Memo healthy at the 5, Hayward at the 3, Jimmer at the 2, and Harris at the 1 with Big Al/Favors/Millsap at the 4. We’d have an amazing inside game. We’d take Bynum/Gasol/McGee out of the post. And imagine the inside outside game.
Another way you might knock on Jimmer is his passing. He averaged 6.5 assists in the tournement. And averaged close to 5 in the regular season.
NBA.com knocks on his dribbling… really? He was the best dribbler or at least tied with Kemba and Irving in the NCAA.
Jimmers upper body is huge. If you watch any Jimmer highlights from this year, look at his jersey. Its being stretched cause thats how big it is. Not to mention his calf’s are tree trunks!
No, he wont have an offence based around him. But don’t say that he can’t roll of screens for jumpers. Or shoot it from the elbow. He came off screens all the time in college at the THREE LINE and drained him. He also has a beautiful mid-range game, being able to create his own shot if needed.
