At the end of the Kings-Pistons game on New Year’s Day, the Kings were down six but had the chance for one last play. Jimmer Fredette got the ball and did… this.
Jimmer: take the contact! Get fouled! Go to the line! Don’t… do… this. I mean, it’s not like this shot could’ve won the game, so maybe he just wanted to end up on the highlight reel or something. At that, he has succeeded.
On the bright side, Jimmer Fredette deserves to be a candidate for Most Improved Player this year, and he’s begun to play much more like he did in college than during his disastrous rookie year. This shot aside.

11.5 seconds left, Kings down by 6. Kings fail to get off a quick shot (no surprise), miss the three (no surprise). Jimmer gets ball with 4 seconds left and fires (as his teammates should have done with 11.0 seconds left). Kevin Lincoln posts silly Buzzfeed article lambasting the shot, as well as a “disastrous rookie season.” Haters will hate, I suppose. Keep up the good work K!
