Jimmer Fredette now belongs to Yao Ming. On Wednesday, Fredette leaves for China, where he’ll quickly take up a role with the Shanghai Sharks, who are owned by the former Houston Rocket and NBA star. He’ll be in a city of 25 million, the largest city in the world. It’s another chapter in the life of the former BYU star, who has struggled to find a permanent home in the NBA. He will leave for China with his father Al, and the two will get things set up before Fredette’s wife Whitney joins him for what will be a five-month season. “We’re looking at this as an adventure,” Fredette said right before his Jimmerosity Golf Tournament at Sleepy Ridge last Friday. “It wasn’t on our bucket list to go to China, but we’ve never been there. We are excited to live in that part of the world and experience new things.”
Who knows if this is his final chance at the NBA. Many people thought that had happened when the Spurs cut him in training camp last year, then the Knicks gave him a shot. Maybe there is always an opportunity for Jimmer because he is Jimmer and he is so sure of himself and the fans keep shouting: “Put Jimmer in!” “Oh, of course I get mad,” he said when asked why he is smiling given the way his career has gone. “But I’m just trying to control my emotions and keep an even keel through the course of my life. I don’t want to get too high or too low. I think I’ve had better times than others but keep a smile on your face and continue to work hard. I’m blessed to be able to do what I do and I go out there and hopefully an opportunity will arise.”
