As The Jimmer Fredette transitions from Kings present to Kings past, we take a moment to reflect on where he lands in the pantheon of Sacramento Kings that have worn the number 7. The Jimmer is only one of five players to log even nearly a season as the #7 for the Sacramento Kings (Bobby Hurley leads at 242, The Jimmer is at 171, Ronnie Price is at 87, Keon Clark is at 80 and Danny Ainge comes in at 75). The rest are Dahntay Jones (25), Michael Hawkins (24), Rashad McCants (24), Dominic McGuire (10), Vincent Askew (9) and Bill Wennington (7, though he did log another 77 games as the number 34).
Ainge was the best player to wear the #7, Hurley the most tenured, Fredette led in CPMP (comments per minutes played), Price had the best dunk, Clark looked like Zorak from Space Ghost, McGuire turned his back on a franchise, McCantsanity had folks clamoring for his re-signing that off season (come on, show of hands), and Bill Wennington owns a championship ring. Vincent Askew has a name that you can have some fun with, Dahntay Jones not so much and I think that Michael Hawkins was the drummer for Foo Fighters.
Sew So, what are you going to do about that The Jimmer jersey? Leave it as-is, or transform it into something a bit more eclectic? I do not own a The Jimmer jersey, but I do possess a pair of The Jimmer Jockeys, and I need to decide what, if anything, to do with them. Help me out by taking to the pole poll. Thanks.
