BYU basketball legend Jimmer Fredette receives CBA's international MVP award

It’s been a pretty good week for Jimmer

Former BYU basketball star, Jimmer Fredette can add another accolade to an already long list of achievements in his basketball career.

Earlier today the Chinese Basketball Association announced that Jimmer was named as the international MVP for the 2016-17 regular season. The league awards two MVP honors, one international player (Fredette) and one domestic, which was given to Ding Yan Yu Hang

This comes as no surprised as Jimmer has dominated the league averaging 37.3 points, 7.9 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game. He made headlines recently with a ridiculous 73 point night in a double overtime loss.

Fredette received a large number of votes, totaling 278 points, with the second place finisher Hamed Haddadi coming in with 113.

Jimmer and the Shanghai Sharks are currently tied in their best-of-five game playoff series against the Shenzhen Leopards. Shanghai lost the first game while Jimmer was back in the US for the birth of his daughter.
