Rock On: Yes, Jimmer's a kid (6 items)
Ever wonder how your street game would stack up against an NBA player?
Apparently four kids in Sacramento did, because they knocked on Jimmer Fredette’s door recently to ask if he could come out and play. His answer: Game on!
Fredette spent about an hour shooting hoops with them.
“It’s just really cool to meet somebody that … you don’t have to pay,” one of the kids told ABC News 10. “You just ask them to come over.”
Cool, so Jimmer, wanna get some Goobers and see “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” after practice?

“Jeff is more affable; he cracks a joke more, and he shows his emotions on his sleeve,” said team president Bill Manning. “Jason would never have done that.”
True, but the biggest difference is that Kreis’ sleeve happened to be connected to a $175 Thomas Pink dress shirt.
A warm-up jacket usually does the trick.

“Well,” coach Tyrone Corbin told the Deseret News’ Jody Genessy, “we’re trying to be a championship-contending team.”
What he didn’t mention was that Jefferson will be 40 when that happens.
