Jimmer-mania officially began when the sellout crowd of 21,739 warmly greeted his Bulls debut with 3 minutes, 8 seconds remaining on Sunday.

It continued when he drained his first shot, a 20-foot jumper. But it didn’t reach epic proportions until after the game, when a media scrum featuring eight television cameras surrounded his locker in a scene reminiscent of the dynasty days.

“It was great,” Jimmer Fredette said of the fan reaction. “I appreciate the support I already have. This is a sports town. They love the Bulls and their teams.”
