Jorts: Call me “Big Nasty”

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”:

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.

    Rule #1 of nicknames – You don’t give yourself one.

    Rule #2 – You don’t recycle other ones.

    People should call Jorts whatever he wants to be called. He is that great of a guy. People said that you are not suppose to wear “jorts” either. Look how that turned out…Get ’em BIG NASTY!!!!!!!!

    #1, #2 Totally agree. Maybe Jorts is too young to remember.. The same principle applies to the ‘Refuse to Lose’ blue shirts.

    He’s already drained another 3 today. Makes you wonder why he didn’t shoot the 3 more last year.

    Let me tell you all, “Jorts” as you all know him, is a WEIRDO. The guy likes to hit on young girls and it’s really creepy. If only you all knew the real Jorts…

    I had some big nasty jorts once. Disgusting. I would have never considered that as a nickname after the trauma wore off.

    Stick with “Jorts” my tall, Knick friend. It fits.

    Wasn’t there just a long post/article on KSR about how lame it is for players to give themselves nicknames? I think it also talked about the self-promoting nicknames like “Big Nasty” would be. Josh, you are Jorts. Stick with it. Love it. It aint changing. Jorts For Life

    Jorts has always reminded me somewhat of Bill Laimbeer from the 80s to early 90s Pistons teams. Laimbeer could also shoot like that from outside and was a tough inside presence. Jorts is just not as mean and a dirty player as Laimbeer was.

    15. HA! a 21 year old likes to hit on 17 and 18 yr old girls? lol yeah that’s crazy.

    Shaq gave himself about 150 nicknames. And they were used often too. I’m not too big on “big nasty jorts” though if you know what I mean. 😀

    Ohhhh #21… I wish they were 17-18. Try 15-16… and yes, that is crazy. Not only that, but if you could see “Big Nasty”‘s DMs on twitter you would think he’s a creep who should stay away from your daughter… believe me.

    Yes, he looks pretty creepy in this photo. I don’t like all this banging.

    #27 I am not talking about my daughter. It’s ok though, Jorts does SEEM like a good guy… just know that he’s a creepy weirdo. I love his game though.
