If you are a sports fan, you have undoubtedly heard the saying “white men can’t jump.” It’s far more than just a classic basketball movie starring Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes; it’s a sports adage seemingly as old and accepted as “defense wins championships.”
But as he has proven himself wont to do, Jimmer Fredette is one white boy who can get up in the air…while doing what it is that white boys are supposed to do: shoot.
Or at least it sure as heck looks like it in this spectacular photo from this year’s NCAA Tournament.
Seriously, even some of Fredette’s apparent height in the air is due to the angle of the shot, that is absolutely incredible lift on a jumpshot. I knew he got up on his shot, but that is pretty remarkable.
