Jimmer Fredette (BYU)
Oh how the mighty have fallen. In 2011, Jimmer Fredette was on top of the world. Celebrating at the ESPY’s (pictured above) with singer/actor Justin Timberlake, and Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers. In his senior season at BYU, Jimmer lead the NCAA in scoring (28.9 ppg), and was named the 2011 National Player of the Year. Jimmer was a threat to score from any spot on the court — so much so — that the term “Jimmer-range” was created to describe the endless range of his deadly three-point shot. In his senior season, he led the Cougars to the Sweet 16, and finished his career as BYU’s all-time leading scorer…
Fast forward seven years to 2018, and Jimmer Fredette is playing basketball in China. Since he was selected with the 10th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, Jimmer has played for the Kings, Bulls, Pelicans, and Knicks. He’s still looking to catch on in the NBA as a three-point specialist, but it’s fair to say things haven’t gone according to plan.
