Fly 2ndComing said:
I think what people are failing to understand is styles of play now vs NBA.
Jimmer wont be able to just jack it from 28 feet whenever he feels like it. He wont be able to jack it from 28 feet because defenders are backing off or he cant get to the lane or rim. He wont be the best player on the team that takes him and will have to fit in. He'll have to actually be able to read dozens of different defensive options on the fly.
I'm not saying he cant or wont be able to do it. I'm saying right now he cant. Also, its two totally different atmospheres from college to the NBA off the court and dealing with teammates thats a whole different adjustment in itself.
Exactly he is a ball controlling SG that is 6'1, and he takes anywhere from 18-24 shots a night....What nba team will allocate that many shots a game for him? He won't be pulling up on Rondo, CP3 or even Chauncey Billups. That transition is tough for any player, and one with limited athleticism and height, even harder.
