Jimmer Fredette Gets Huge Reception In Sacramento

by June 25, 2011

Kings fans need a hero and, as the Sacramento Bee reports, it looks like rookie Jimmer Fredette has been given that responsibilty: “The Jimmer jet officially touched down in Sacramento around 5 p.m. Friday afternoon, carrying Kings rookie Jimmer Fredette, and the scene at Sacramento International Airport was fit for a rock star of Bono’s ilk, not a smiling 22-year-old from upstate New York. Welcome to the Jimmer Show. A few hundred people crowded around baggage claim at Terminal A for a glimpse of the former BYU star, who was acquired by the Kings in the first round of Thursday’s NBA draft. The newest addition to the Kings roster arrived with three handlers at his side and lived up to descriptions of his demeanor, remaining calm and at ease in the face of a media horde.”
