Jorts gets some love


Josh Harrellson is gaining supporters after his Knick debut on Saturday. His 7 point, 3 rebound, and 2 steal effort had some New York journalists singing the former Kentucky star’s praise:

stephen-a ah

Even the Knicks starting shooting guard was impressed with the big man and the rest of the rookies:


Harrellson’s amount of minutes in his debut bodes well for his prospects of playing this year. The Knickerbockers haven’t been extremely deep in the big man department, and with the trade of Ronny Turiaf there’s definitely a chance for Jorts to get some decent playing time this season. The Knicks take on the New Jersey Nets again on Wednesday and Harrellson should see the same, if not, more minutes in the final preseason game. Good luck, Josh.

    Anyone hear any updates on the injured finger of Terrence Jones? Someone posted they heard he will be out a month. It seems all the uk people are saying it’s a “finger injury.”

    Jorts should give Cal a cut of his salary. None of our former coaches could have made Jorts into an nba draft-pick. For all the talk of Cal only turning one-and-done’rs into nba’ers, I give you JORTS.

    Proud of ya Jorts, way to take advantage of your opportunities. We’ve had guys with twice (or more) the talent – but they just pissed it away! (And no, I ain’t name’n names)

    3) It seems like everyone is being quiet on the Jones injury. Makes me a bit nervous.

    I really hope Josh is successful. He earned it the old-fashioned way.

    Jorts looked like he has himself in very good shape. He played with alot of confidence yesterday. Keep it up Jorts! The announcers for the game yesterday where Nets announcers, and the where talking about how good he was playing.

    Hey folks, Jorts was a BCG recruit. Don’t forget…hahaha. Couldn’t even finish the sentence. When Hagerstown who tell you Cal can’t coach or develop players who aren’t five stars start talking, let em finish. Then, say JORTS and walk away.

    uggh who photoshopped Jorts head on that body? made him look like a burn victim..and that cut on the eye was from last year. Hey,investigating is just what i do.

    Hagerstown was haters….great auto correct. On a related note, Haterstown is about 70 miles west from Lexington. Roll down your windows when you get there. It smells like chicken and inferiority complex.

    15) cal played jorts by default, not by coaching. amazing how them white boyz can actually play if allowed to! wiltcher would be an all american at duke this yr but will play the pine for cal until he gets a chance to play by default.

    I really hate Stephen A Smith. I can’t believe espn hired him back. I never met him, but I can’t stand him. This bastard just yells and screams (while rolling his eyes and being dismissive) all the time for no reason.

    #18 – Lipper – Sure Wiltjer would start at Duke. Their starting 5 is weaker than ours.

    He wouldn’t be an All American. But he’s a damn good player that will help us big time this year.

    If he returns in 2012, he’ll be the man (as long as he learns to play aggressive and relentless defense).

    #9 – Nice. As much as Tubby got credit for coaching, he never once developed any rough stones like Jorts into a diamond. Cal is vastly underrated as a coach, and Jorts is the best example.

    When will you guys stop using that terribly shopped picture of Harrelson?

    18) Wiltjer can’t play defense and can’t rebound. He sometimes forces shots and then passes up open looks. Additionally, if you think Harrelson wasn’t developed by Cal and his staff significantly to become the player he is, you are an idiot.

    You can’t even get Kyle’s name correct.

    and “they” (whomever “they” are) say coach Cal can’t coach…hmm…Jorts goes from afterthought JC transfer, to important cog in Final Four run, to NBA…hmm…and hmmm again…seemingly, Coach Cal can coach..and teach..and win..and produce NBA level talent…even from those not supposed to posess NBA level talent…all Cal needs now is an NCAA title and he can finally get some well deserved respect

    The harder you work, the Luckier you get…Calipari gave Josh the opportunity, with a little tough Love. Josh took advantage of it, with a lot of Big Blue Love…And we will always Love you for that Josh…Go Get you sum…

    Jorts is a great example of what Cal can do with lessor talent. Not only jorts but also Liggins. Most people forget how terrible Liggins was his freshman year. I was hoping he wouldn’t come back after that year and questioned how he was a 5 star recruit out of high school. He just looked like he didn’t have a clue when BCG was here. With that being said, You will still hear the haters say that he can’t coach. It just makes me laugh when I hear people mumble that ish.
