His brother thinks he is totally def and rad. What what!

I can't wait until The Jimmer Trapper Keeper comes out.
"We live in a little bit of a bubble in Provo, but we're not completely separated from the rest of the world," said Fredette. "I hear the talk. I know that, right or wrong, some people are really pulling for me because of the color of my skin. But there are good players in the NBA D-League. I don't know if I can go in there and just dominate."
Fredette says he knows he will be drafted and fully intends to try to forge a career in the regular NBA, but believes his best shot to be a game-changer is in the D-League.
"All the hopes and expectations placed on me does not change the fact that I am a 6-foot-2 shooting guard who is a gunner and can't play defense at all. I mean, even a little bit," said Fredette. "At the absolute max of my potential I could maybe be like J.J. Redick in the NBA. That's far short of the hopes people have for me. But have me playing teams like the Fort Wayne Mad Ants and the Erie Bayhawks every night? That's pretty much the same quality as the Mountain West Conference. I might be able to tear it up."
The Cheeseheads have restricted the growth of their brains.
At least they didn't write his name in coke.
Late last night photos surfaced on the Utah sports blog LatterDaySports.net showing Fredette at a Provo restaurant drinking a Pepsi. BYU's honor code prohibits caffeine along with sex, alcohol, tea and cigarettes. It also encourages BYU students to monitor the behavior of their peers.
Confronted by BYU officials this morning, Fredette admitted to drinking from a 2-liter Pepsi bottle. However, he denied rumors that he had slid into even harder substances, such as Pepsi Max.
"I apologize for my actions," said Fredette. "It's just that with games and practice and working out and mid-terms and everything I got really tired. So I turned to caffeine to stay awake. But I'm not making excuses. It was wrong."
Fredette also said that he tried Pepsi because: "I wasn't sure if I could go another day drinking only water and juice. My taste buds wanted to commit suicide."
