Jimmer Fredette Hosts Rookie Exhibition Games, Could Singlehandedly End NBA Lockout

Exhibition games starring NBA players are all the rage right now, with, thanks to the NBA lockout, players being unwed to any contracts that prevent them of playing basketball wherever and whenever they'd like. Jimmer Fredette is jumping right into the foray, announcing on Monday that he and BYU coach Dave Rose will host two games in Utah in September starring a bevy of 2011 NBA draft picks, including Jimmer himself and possible Bobcats rookie Kemba Walker.

The event is called "Jimmer's All-Stars," and the second game, to be held in Provo, will no doubt sell out. All that money will, however, be going to charity instead of the Maloofs' credit card bills. Tough break for the owners.
