Jorts puts up 13 points against Philadelphia

Spike Lee better get his urban wash denim shorts ready because the Knicks are 3-0 when Josh Harrellson scores in double figures. Last night, Jorts put up 13 points in the Knicks’ 85-79 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. Adam Zagoria has some great quotes from Josh’s teammates on his performance:

Josh was a big key tonight,” said Carmelo Anthony, who scored a game-high 27 points, including two clutch foul shots with 16.1 seconds left.

“The way they was trapping the pick-and-roll and not trying to let me break free. They was double-teaming the post ups. And for me to just find Josh over there, finding the open man, just to have confidence in them guys to make shots it was big for us.

Jorts shot an impressive 3-5 from behind the arc, a trend which head coach Mike D’Antoni hopes will continue: “Josh has played well a lot. If he can consistently make that outside shot, he’s going to open that floor up.”

Keep making us proud, buddy.

    I don’t think I’ve ever rooted for a guy as much as I have Josh Harrellson.

    It is amazing what Jorts has become in just about a year. Who would have predicted this 2 years ago?

    How weird is it hearing Melo say that Josh is key to winning games. Crazy

    This is PROOF Calipari is a good coach.

    He’s came a long way from that bathroom stall..just shows what an idiot Billy G was. Glad to see Jorts be a key member of the Knicks!!

    Melo should have stayed in school. They was not requiring must education at Syracuse apparently.

    Melo showing us the value of a Syracuse education. Must be high standards there at the ‘Cuse. Melo wouldn’t pass a 5th grade grammar test, yet he gets admitted to college.

    Great for Jorts. DeMarcus is turning it on as well.

    Patrick Patterson had a decent night (finally). Meeks is stinking it up, and Wall is regressing. His facial expressions and body language are god awful.

    Dang…come on Melo…surely you went to some English classes along the way.

    Go get ’em Jorts!! Why wouldn’t Cal let Jorts shoot the 3?

    Jorts proved me wrong and made me a fan while he was here. His success in the NBA is once again defying logic and you can’t help but love his blue collar work ethic. So gald for him…

    Wonder why Coach Cal wouldn’t let him shoot the rock while at UK? Even Billy G knew Josh was a good shooter.

    #10- Really?? We aren’t ones to talk (look at Bledsoe and Cousins).

    I love me some Jorts. I may have to become a Knicks fan for that guy, he’s awesome.

    Although I agree that Melo’s grammar and sentence structure need help…We should be wary of mocking him. Have you heard Jon Wall or Bledsoe talk?

    It is so amazing to hear things like this. I am so proud of Jorts for the player he had to work so hard to become. Talk about not wasting an opportunity. Go Jorts!

    11) No surprise. Wall would be bearing down on back-to-back NCAA titles right now, but instead he’s like every other lottery winner
    ,rich, yes…happy,no…like every kid on Dec26. Every competitor knows losing sucks, really sucks.
    18) Someone had to get a rebound.

    Just popped in to clarify that the quotes of Melo are a representation of dialect. Dialect really has nothing to do with the grammar some of you speak of. Melo, being African American, speaks in African American English (AAE). Therefore, the “They was” is grammatically correct…..for an AAE speaker. The “incorrect” grammar being referenced in the comments is based on Standard American English (SAE). So, Melo’s grammar is actually correct if you reference the correct dialect. There is no right way or wrong way to speak. It’s a linguistic fact. Sorry, but calling someone out on the way they speak just shows your ignorance. And, no I don’t want a nerd fight.

    28….yeah, you are right. How silly of me. Guess the 5 1/2 years of study and a Master’s in Linguistics with a concentration in English vernaculars, especially AAE is just a bunch of child’s play.

    To all those who wonder why Jorts didn’t shoot from the outside last year: He was needed on the offensive glass and besides we had Knight, Lamb and Miller for threes. That photo is awesome. Hope to see it on the cover of SI soon. With Jorts who knows what may happen next.

    28) Not wrong, just prescriptivist.

    #1 and 21: I totally agree. I don’t have any tattoos, but if I decided to get one, it would be a Jorts tat!!!

    31…I digress. I should have noted the prescriptivist vs. descriptivist argument.
