The legend of Jimmer lives on

With the NBA season well underway, the game is starting to slow down for guard Jimmer Fredette, according to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee.

Jones noted recent progress by the former BYU All-American in his blog.

Fredette is starting to look more like himself on the court … Teammates are finding him better. They don’t get him the ball every time he is open but progress is being made. Fredette said he is starting to figure out the NBA game.


While the Kings’ guard continues to develop his NBA skills, his name made the sports newswire of the Onion, “America’s Finest News Source.” The website recently reported: “Tebow goes back to being named ‘Jimmer Fredette’ for NFL offseason.”

On a fried note, a man named Tracy Hall, of Wallsburg, Utah, really broke the yoke and created this egg-xcellent, “artistic memorial” to┬áJimmer while frying eggs recently. “I swear that this whimsical guy appeared completely by accident in my frying pan,” Hall wrote in an email. “I almost couldn’t bear to eat him.”

Tracy Hall recently created this "artistic memorial" to former BYU great Jimmer Fredette.

Tracy and his wife, Helen, recently departed on an LDS mission to Germany.
