Video game Jimmer

Really for no reason beyond the fact that it's Friday afternoon, here's a collection of Jimmer Fredette highlights made to look and sound like a video game. You know you want to see Jimmer hit a ridiculous three accompanied by sounds from Super Mario Bros.

Oh, right, relevance: the Knicks apparently really are interested in Jimmer, maybe enough to try moving up to get him (they have the #17 pick in the draft). Of course, it's not clear exactly who's running the Knicks right now. [NY Mag] [NYT]

An NBA mock draft published today that we haphazardly pulled from the first few results in Google has Jimmer going to the Utah Jazz at #12. If that happens, the Jazz promotions and ticket sales teams could probably take the rest of the season off (distance between Provo and Salt Lake City: 44 miles). Jimmer apparently would be OK with that, too. [Bleacher Report] [Desert News]

So what is Jimmer up to these days? Working out for NBA teams and trying to improve his defense. [AP/Desert News]

The NBA draft is June 23.
