GLENS FALLS - He rose to national prominence as the best college basketball player in the land. He was the tenth overall selection in the NBA draft.
But here we are in the middle of October and Jimmer Fredette has yet to don a Sacramento Kings jersey.
"It is disappointing because November 2nd was actually supposed to be his first game so we were really looking forward to that," says Al Fredette, Jimmer's father. "But having waited this long, a couple more months, I guess we can do that as long as they can get this thing settled."
Jimmer is not just sitting around his parents' Glens Falls home admiring his myriad trophies. He's in Utah working out hard with his uncle, Lee Taft, a nationally known speed and conditioning coach.
If and when the lock-out is resolved, Fredette will be ready.
