Leading Off: 10 pressing questions in the world of sports

• After Jimmer Fredette scored 24 points in the Kings’ 106-101 overtime victory over the New York Knicks on Wednesday, weren’t you wondering why he doesn’t play like that every night?

• When Fredette made 6-of-8 three-point attempts, did anyone really think, “Jimmermania is back”?

• Speaking of Fredette, is he a point guard, a shooting guard – or just a good shooter?

• If you’re Knicks coach Mike Woodson, are you wondering if you’ll still have your job after the All-Star break?

• Speaking of Woodson, remember when he averaged 15.6 points and teamed with Reggie Theus, Eddie Johnson, Larry Drew and others to lead the Kings to the playoffs in 1985-86, their first season in Sacramento?

• When LeBron James made that game-winning three-pointer to beat the Warriors in Oakland on Wednesday, didn’t you just shake your head and say, “Wow!”?

• When the NBA scheduled Thursday night’s TNT doubleheader, could anyone have predicted that the Oklahoma City Thunder would be the only one of the four teams with a shot at winning a championship?

• With Republic FC playing 14 home matches in their inaugural USL Pro season, is it fair that fans who want to buy season tickets have to pay for 20 matches, including three friendlies and three playoff games?

• Republic FC hasn’t finalized its home facility or played a game, so isn’t it a bit presumptuous to include three playoff games in a season-ticket package?

• If the United States and Canada play for the women’s hockey Olympic gold as expected, which team will throw the first punch?
