Audio: The Grant Napear Show – June 27, 2011
Grant picked up where he left off last week, asking fans where they draw the line when it comes to rooting for athletes with lousy personalities. The topic stems from Giants’ fans continued support of Barry Bonds.
NBA.com writer Scott Howard-Cooper joined in the second hour to explain why Jimmer Fredette has continued to impress writers and league executives, beyond just his shooting ability. Scott also provided a forecast for the upcoming NBA lockout and some thoughts on a few key free agents.
After further discussing the boundaries that fans draw in regards to rooting for athletes, Mark Smith of the Albuquerque Journal called in to talk about Jimmer Mania and how he experienced it first hand with Mountain West Basketball. Smith described Fredette’s domination at the college level.
