How to use Jimmer Fredette Effectively - please rec and email to someone to communicate to Jimmer


Hi All,

The Kings are not effectively using Jimmer Fredette in one key way that I cannot believe the coaches fail to understand. Please watch this link and follow Michael Jordan to understand. It's the concept of setting screens to get yourself open.

If you watch the link you'll see how MJ did this all the time to get himself rhythm jumpers and to get himself into a position where he created an advantage (defender out of position so that the defender has to run at him...he could shoot or get around the defender easily). Whenever Jimmer has any kind of advantage he can find a teammate or get his shot off. Right now, he is setting phantom screens when he moves (he puts his hand up like he's going to set a screen then dodges the defender), and there are no screens set off the ball for the team...it's all one on one in which the team can only gain an advantage by dribble drives. Also, it makes the team very easy to defend in general; when you have to worry about being picked off it makes defending much more stressful and difficult.

My one wish is for someone to show this video to Jimmer. He doesn't need to be setting big screens or anything, just put a body on people and roll or fade off. Jordan did it all the time, John Stockton did it all the time. When you screen you get yourself open (it's the same concept as the screen and roll...think about the screener). Also, it endears you to your teammates because you're trying to get them open, but in actually you get yourself open when your defender hedges to help the screened defender.

Jimmer has never had to do this because he was always just so overpoweringly good and athletic enough to take everyone one on one. Please someone find a way to use the Sac. Bee or some other way to get Jimmer to see this and understand how he'll be able to get open shots and an advantage to drive.

Thanks for listening all, let me know what you think.
