Jimmer Fredette named NBA D-League all-star

But we already knew The Jimmer is an all-star.

NBA D-League

The beloved Jimmer Fredette has been named an NBA Development League All-Star.

Jimmer, who plays for the Westchester Knicks, will lace it up for the NBADL Eastern Conference team for the game in Toronto, which airs at noon MT on Saturday, Feb. 13 on NBA TV.

From the college angle, Jimmer joins only three other mid-major college products of the 24-man all-star game.

Fredette is averaging 22.7 points per game in 23 games with the Knicks. He's shooting 48.4% from the field and 41.7% from 3. He's also dishing 5 assists per game and nabbing 1.9 steals per contest.

The former college national player of the year is finding himself written about more and more as a D-League player deserving of a call up.

Here's what he told Vice Sports about his D-League production compared to his NBA flailing:

"I think the biggest thing is I haven't been able to find consistent playing time ... I've been on teams where I've played spotty minutes, some here, some there, but I haven't been able to be in the rotation consistently. I feel like if I can find an opportunity to do that, I can produce."

Congrats, Jimmer! Here's some of his D-League highlight reel. He's not just hitting 3-pointers, he's crossing dudes over too.
