SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – There’s nothing better than seeing a grainy highlight video of Jimmer Fredette pulling up and burying shots from the parking lot during his days at BYU. But that’s nearly a decade ago. We need the next best thing.

Well, Jimmer is giving us that on his personal Instagram page during these unprecedented times. The former BYU star and NBA Lottery pick has been pulling off some trick shots with none other than a Little Tikes hoop. For all the dads reading this, don’t tell me you haven’t attempted trick shots on your kids’ Little Tikes hoop. I know I have.

Jimmer just does it a lot better than the rest of us.

Every Tuesday, Fredette has been posting a video under #TrickShotTuesday. Who knew this is the content we needed during a pandemic. But we’re here for it.

I’m getting “Dude Perfect” vibes on this one with the “Let’s Go!” Also, we need more Al Fredette in these trick shot videos.

Did you know Jimmer Fredette had some letters sent to him from the Penn State Football program back in the day? Fredette played both basketball and football at Glens Falls High School. Fredette blew the dust off his arm to show off the accuracy.
