Jimmer Fredette Holding Basketball Camp In Saratoga This Week
It’s always nice to see celebrities remembering where they came from. Glens Falls High School basketball star, and current member of the Sacramento Kings, is holding his Jimmer Jam Camp in Saratoga this week.
After high school, Jimmer took home ever major Player of the Year honor during his senior season at BYU. He was a co-captain of the team that year and averaged 28.9 points per game. He dazzled college hoops fans with the incredible range and accuracy of his long distance shot. Dude was buckets on buckets on buckets.
He was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks with the 10th overall pick but was traded to the Kings. It’s unfortunate that such a talented player ended up in a wasteland like Sacramento. The Kings are just bad, man. Maybe if they move to Seattle, as has been rumored, our local star will gain the attention he deserves.
In his second year with the Kings he received a few more minutes per game than his rookie campaign. He was a little less productive, though. His field goal percentage, free throw percentage, and three point percentage all went down, although he increased his points per game average to 7.6 from 7.2.
