NBA writer Moke Hamilton is at Madison Square Garden for the Knicks afternoon game against Orlando today and he talked to our man Josh Harrellson during warm-ups. During their chat, Jorts told him he wants to be called “Big Nasty”:
Jorts just told me to call him “Big Nasty.” He says Melo looks good but not even #Knicks PR can tell us if he’s playing. He’s stretching.

We can certainly make that happen.
Big Nasty has scored in double figures in three of his last five games while shooting 42% from beyond the arc. Let’s see if that keeps up today.
