Omar's Jimmer's coming!

Have you Jimmer'd lately?

The New York Knicks are dipping into their Westchester farm system for the third time; only now they intend to bring up a veteran of some repute.

Jimmersanity! Dogs and cats, living together! Mass hysteria! This will be Jimmer Fredette's second stint with an NBA team this season -- he played with the Pelicans for a grand total of four game and 13 total minutes.

For what it's worth, Jimmer has been lighting the D-League aflame, averaging 22.3 points on 47.4% shooting (40.4% from three), 4.8 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game. He's slow, he doesn't defend, but he's rediscovered his three-point shot and does have a surprising amount of craftiness around the rim. The biggest question -- or concern, depending on your point of view -- is whether he will see minutes over rookie Jerian Grant.

Jimmer's birthday is February 25, so this will be a nice present for him; Phil Jackson is one thoughtful dude.

Update:

Looks like all us Jimmermaniacs will have to wait a few days.
