Incoming Kings rookie Jimmer Fredette sat down with Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports to talk his upcoming charity “All-Star” game along with many other hot topics, one of which is the talk of him dominating in the NBA – or in Jimmer’s world, maybe not dominating. Well, at least not immediately…
“The biggest thing is that people want to see how I translate to the NBA game,” Fredette told Yahoo! Sports. “There are a lot of question marks out there. There are a lot of guys who don’t think I can play at this level and I won’t be able to dominate as well as the college level. I’m not expecting to do that at the NBA level right away anyway.
“Everyone is pretty young on that team,” Fredette said. “They are a good group of guys that are really talented. I figured I’d fit right in. I’ve also been in contact with both [Evans and Cousins], and they said, ‘Whatever you need to help just let me know.’ It’s good to have them reach out to me because they are going to be the guys I’m going to be playing with.
“Hopefully, we’ll have a great relationship. It will translate on the court and we will win some basketball games.”
Fantastic to see Reke and Cousins already reaching out to Fredette.
