Golden State Warriors

Kings owner tweets Jimmer Fredette birthday/buyout(?) group photo

Jimmer Fredette was reportedly working out a buyout today, and Kings owner Vivek Ranadive (a former Warriors minority owner) posted a photo celebrating a holiday even Hallmark couldn’t have conjured: The Birthday Buyout!

Vivek is flashing a shaka (hang loose) sign to the camera (it seems to be a thing he does all the time) … in front of a photo of him doing the same hand signal in a photo with Chris Webber.

Mark Cuban has his good points. But ever since his arrival, all new NBA owners under 60 think they’re a lot cooler than they are.

Fredette (who turned 25 today) is free, and the rest of the guys in the photo are free from questions about why Fredette — whose three point percentage has gone up while his minutes have gone down — isn’t the same Statue of David-esque hero we saw when he was a star at BYU.

“For whatever reason, Jimmer was never able to find success, whether they were unrealistic expectations from his college career or whatever it was,” Malone said. “But he just wasn’t able to play to the level that everybody wanted him to play, which is somewhat maybe unrealistic. Maybe we have to temper our expectations for Jimmer and let him just become a solid NBA player and there’s nothing wrong with that.”

Could the guy Malone drew up plays for last season ask Bob Myers to bring Fredette to Oakland?

While the Warriors could probably use another sharpshooter, Fredette’s lack of basketball skills other than hitting threes means they’ll probably pass.
