Embrace the void, my friends. The magnificent Jimmer Fredette -- light of our lives, fire of our loins -- has played his last game as a New York Knick.
The Knicks will not sign Jimmer Fredette to another 10-day contract, league sources told ESPN.— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) March 2, 2016
The BYU and D-League legend put together what is quite simply one of the finest statistical seasons in franchise history. According to Basketball-Reference, Jimmer's 2015-16 campaign ranks third all-time, behind Knicks greats Jackie Butler and Jerome James:
Or perhaps you prefer player efficiency rating ... where Jimmer ranks second in club history!
Just look at that scrub, Carmelo Anthony, waaaaay down at the bottom of that list. I suppose he gets to keep his job though! How does this happen? Politics, man. This country wants to keep Jimmer down. Keep everybody weak. They don't want a man like Jimmer to have the
title roster spot because he's not a puppet like that fool up there Melo.
And so Jimmer walked out of our lives forever. But we'll always have the memories of "Jim-mer" chants raining down from the Garden rafters, with a forcefulness we haven't heard from Knicks fans since the heady days of "We want Chris Smith!"
Farewell, sweet prince.
