Lest people think I'm hatin', I will say that Jimmer has looked pretty good as an offensive player in his first few NBA games - he's able to create his own shots off the bounce in addition to spotting up for three.

But the Kings for some reason had him trying to cover Derrick Rose on back-to-back possessions. Ouch. Other than Gary McGhee falling down, I have never seen a defensive player end up so far from the guy he is trying to guard. Two simple change of direction moves, and I swear both times Jimmer ended up watching Rose from 15 feet away.

Derrick Rose is a lot of NBA players' worst nightmare.

I know - just can't believe the Kings put him in that position of trying to guard Rose. Put him on Rip and at least he just gives up open jumpers when Rip runs him off screens and it isn't so bad. Believe it or not, Jimmer actually put a good crossover move on Rose and blew by him - but he lost the ball in the paint.
