Earlier in the week, China legend and NBA cast away Jimmer Fredette exploded for 50 points (10 threes), 10 boards and 9 assists in a win vs Sichuan. As ridiculous as that may sound to some, the former BYU star nicknamed “Jimo Dashen (translates to “The Lonely God”), scored a ridiculous 73 in a game last season.
As an encore to his almost 50-point triple-double (which came after a 47-point night), Fredette exploded for 54 points (11 threes), 13 rebounds and 10 assists against Stephon Marbury’s Beikong Fly Dragons today. During his hot performance, Fredette also got into a heated altercation with the 40-year old Starbury — still averaging 17 points, 7 assists and 6 boards.
Usually when I post about former NBA players putting up monster numbers in China, people will respond with comments like “if that scrub can drop 50 in China then what would a superstar like LeBron or KD do?” I’m not calling anyone a scrub but I would have loved to have seen Kobe in China considering he once had an insane 50 point game streak in the NBA. This doesn’t really count but the Black Mamba did put up 68 points (29-33 FG) in a charity game in China, back in 2012. And he only played 15 minutes.
