Rock On: Learning from Jimmer (7 items)
If the Sacramento Kings seemed clueless as to what to do with Jimmer Fredette, consider this: they are now seeking public input on their June draft pick.
In a promotion the team is calling Draft 3.0, fans are encouraged to share their own analytics and rank their draft preferences. In return, two winners will be “considered” for admission to the draft room on June 26.
Here is Rock On’s sole analytic, which the Kings can take to the bank: Don’t draft a 3-point scorer unless you plan to use him.
1 of 7. BUBBA BREAK
Police immediately ruled out WH aficionado Bubba Watson as a suspect, saying he surely would have used a 5-iron.
2 of 7. RATTLED
Maintenance crews were brought in to remove the reptile that was an estimated two feet long. Experts say the situation wasn’t too dangerous. Still, snakes are known to be irritable, quick to strike and intimidating.
You mean like Gregg Popovich?
3 of 7. FULLY STOCKED
Sources say the only way he’d take the job is if he were allowed to conduct post-game interviews via certified mail.
4 of 7. THE LONG HAUL
The Catholic University tennis coach has been at the school 53 years. This season, he finally took his team to the NCAA tournament.
How does one keep the same job that long?
“I’ve been on 53 one-year contracts,” he told the Associated Press.
Just wondering: Isn’t that the same deal LaVell Edwards had with BYU?
5 of 7. AL ON GUARD
She is reportedly moving to Charlotte to work for the team her father owns.
So now it’s her job to yell at Al Jefferson about his defense.
