Jorts explains Jorts

jorts

KnicksNow.com has a 1-on-1 feature with Josh Harrellson where he explains how the nickname “Jorts” was born.

Spoiler: He knows where it came from.

Josh also talks about what he did during the NBA lockout and practicing against Tyson Chandler.

    New Jorts City. His story keeps getting better and better. BBN is proud to be a part of it.

    4. You realize your comment has nothing to do with this post, right? Just making sure. That’s Big Jorts up there in that image. And you posted about Shabazz and next year’s team, which, if you really think about it rationally, has nothing to do with Big Jorts nor the post on which you made your comment. Merry Christmas.

    He mentions so many times how much he loves Kentucky and you can tell how much being here and the fans and everything meant to him. I may seriously have to become a Knicks fan just for this guy, and I haven’t watched an NBA game in I don’t know how many years.

    Jorts is really well spoken and seems very bright. He can make a legacy for himself if he can back up all that charisma with a workman like attitude on the court. I look forward to following him over the next several years to see how long he can maintain a spot on an NBA roster.

    Man I love this guy. He has such a feel good story. Goes from someone that ppl hated seeing on the floor, ppl tellin Cal to boot him, and eventually becomes known nation wide and a draft pick. They should make a movie about the country kid lol And, as 7 said, one of the nicest, most down to Earth ppl you will meet.

    I don’t like Jorts. He’s a punk and hurt me.

    One of my favorites who ever wore the blue and white. He was never the most talented, and his play helped lead us to the final four. We will never forget his game against Ohio State.

    Big V – Never the most talented is right, but I’d say easily one of the hardest workers that has been seen so far since Cal started. I’d almost venture to say the absolute hardest worker, though MKG lately tends to give Jorts a run for his money. The Knicks should draft MKG.

    I just want to pose a thought: What if Enes had played? Jorts would have received significantly less playing time. Would he be where he is now with the Knicks? Could it possibly be that by the sanctions on Kanter, Jorts was able to shine, get even more playing time and get even better and get Drafted?

    If you want proof of the Kentucky Effect, look no further.

    18- It all worked out pretty good didn’t it? If I remember right, the loss of Enes was the reason Jorts stepped up and started working really hard and became the man he is today.
