Jimmer’s All-Stars is a hit

Jimmer Fredette and a group of rookies put on a show Thursday night in Provo, Utah on the campus of BYU.  Although team Fredette lost 140-126 to team Leonard, the former Cougar got an incredible send off from more than 11,000 enthusiastic fans.  As opposed to most of the other summer league events, Fredette and his Octagon management team, landed a first class facility complete with a free live streaming website and a television deal with the BYU channel.  So that means that thousands of folks all over the country got to catch a glimpse of some high flying, fun loving, no defense playing hoops. Coach Steve Fisher came out to coach his former San Diego State star Kawhi Leonard who teamed with the Bucks' first rounder Tobias Harris to lead team Leonard with 24 points apiece.  Kemba Walker chipped in 23 points, six rebounds and four assists to drive the offense from the point, while big man Vernon Macklin anchored the post with 18 points on 8/11 shooting and six rebounds.  Team Leonard took an 18 point lead into the half, outscoring team Fredette 36-19 in the second quarter and never looked back.

Adidas Eurocamp Day 1: Montiejunas & Biyombo Lackluster in Workouts

A showcase of some of the top international talent is taking place right now in Treviso, Italy.   Day one of the Adidas Eurocamp wrapped up yesterday.  Some notes and quotes from those in attendance: Scott Howard-Cooper, NBA.com On Bismack Biyombo
The Biyombo workout was interesting as a rare public look at a prospect who has not played in months, after splitting with his team in Spain, and was barely known in the United States even when he was in a lineup. It just wasn’t good. The entire premise was a bad idea. Biyombo, a power forward from the Republic of Congo, is a stud athlete who blocks shots and rebounds. That would have come out in a game, where he could light up the gym by flying around the rim and overpowering opponents. In one-on-none drills, NBA evaluators got to observe bad hands and an offensive game that everyone agrees will be a non-factor in the league, all the way to a bad showing at the line. Dibs on trademarking “Hack a ‘Mack.” Opponents will foul Biyombo every time he has the ball within dunking distance, also known as his maximum shooting range. The encouraging news is that an executive with one team said Biyombo did much better at a recent individual workout in Spain by catching balls a club official purposely threw wild to gauge reaction and hands. But nothing hides the zero offense of a player tracking to the top 10.
On Donatas Montiejunas
The Motiejunas workout was better but hardly worth the top of the resume either. While he showed the agility and a shooting touch uncommon at 6-feet-11 power forward, the lottery-bound power forward appeared tired to those who had watched him during the season.
