We have been screaming this from the mountain tops since the first day of training camp last season.  Jimmer Fredette is too nice.  He wants to fit in too badly.  He doesn't want to steal the spotlight, he just wants to be one of the guys and by doing so, he has lost the edge that made him great. Following the Kings' final summer league game in Las Vegas, Jimmer finally said what needed to be said, for himself and for everyone involved.
"I think I changed my game too much," Jimmer said on the NBATV telecast.  "I was too passive.  I was trying to fit in a little bit too much.  That's what I was working on this year.  Just getting that confidence back.  Just getting that stroke back and just being aggressive when I'm on the floor.  That's what they (Kings) got me for, to score the basketball and make plays for this team."
I don't know about you, but I feel better now, and no, I'm not joking. ... More

Game Recap: Kings bounce back, beat the Lakers 84-72

Unlike the Bobcats from a night ago, the Los Angeles Lakers did not bring their starting five to summer league and it showed. Looking to bounce back from last night’s debacle, the Kings pulled away from the Lakers late, beating the purple and gold by a score of 84-72. While the fans were waiting for Jimmer Fredette or Thomas Robinson to blow up, it was the 5-foot-11 Josh Akognon who looked unstoppable.  The 26-year old out of Cal State Fullerton led all scorers with 25, shooting 10-for-16 from the field, including 4-for-8 from distance. ...
