Josh Harrellson still loves jean shorts, confuses Calipari

 Obviously excited by tomorrow’s internet explosion known and subsequent Senior Day festivities being billed as Jorts Day, the University of Kentucky made their lone men’s basketball senior available to the media this morning.  If Twitter is any indication, the time was full of solid news.  We learned that Harrellson broke an 11 year-old’s leg at a basketball camp this summer, that he can give Gillispie credit for his success and will graduate in May.  More importantly, he informed the world that he owns 10 or 11 pairs of jean shorts.  Don’t be fooled by the rocks that he’s got, he’s still Joshy from the block.

However, all of this talk left one person a little perplexed it seems.  The man who has found the right recipe for Jorts success still doesn’t quite understand what’s going on tomorrow. 

Coach Cal Tweeted this out earlier:

calipari-tweet-jorts

Just amazing he can’t get a “good job” or a “way to go”.  I guess he just has to keep on trucking.  You can’t stop this train!!!

***13 hours, 20 minutes until Jorts Day.

    Josh Harrellson would have NEVER played at UK, had Gillispie never surfaced. But in all actuality, I think Jorts is a great college player. I don’t think he’ll play PRO ball in the NBA, but he’s a hard working, blue collar kind of player that every team needs. You might think I’m nuts but four years of Josh Harrellson, would be better than one year of Demarcus Cousins. Reason I say that is because, experience is what wins championships and UK will NEVER have that as long as Cal keeps getting the one and dones.

    Psssttt, who is Jorts?

    10: Jesus doesn’t like the way you talk boy. Go wash your mouth out and hit those knees and repent.
    11: It will never happen. If Cal couldn’t win it with 5 1st Round picks, he’ll NEVER win it.
    12: Thank you. God Bless you and Jesus loves you.

    Jesus said to Christians, “You will be hated because of me.” Thank you Jesus for that promise. I’m GLAD to be hated because of you and i can’t wait until these people who oppose you stand before you to be judged.

    We can win with the talent he is bringing in. Cal said it right when he said he would take talent over experience every time.

    And I think Jesus Christ is a myth, a fable, a made up story. Just like the bible is a made up story based on Egyptian allegory. Here, watch this, its part 1 of 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNf-P_5u_Hw

    So proud of Jorts – He played so tough Saturday! I love this kind of story, when some had looked over the kid, he gets thrown in the fire by circumstnaces beyond his control (no Enes and sorry – but little help elsewhere), and does the work to make the most of what he has – and to give the most of what he has to be a team player. So proud of you big man! Many would have wilted at the challenge. Keep up the good work and raise it a level!

    This is not a place to discuss religion. Go somewhere else. Everyone has their own beliefs and most do not care to hear yours. In regard to the post, I am surprised that Cal does not know “jorts.” Seems widely used in discussions about Josh.

    7. Josh was a transfer he has only been at UK for 3 years. I know Josh wasn’t born and raised in Kentucky- but he shoulda been, he acts just like one of us. But why pit one Wildcat against another? Demarcus Cousins was a treasure. Yeah he’s a little rough around the edges but so was I before the LORD got ahold of my life. You need a mixture of players; in state boys- outa state boys, one and dones- 3-4 year players.

    I’m trying to decide what’s more entertaining, when someone posts “First” or when someone else wastes a post yelling at the person that posts “First”. Why does that ruin people’s days? “OMG LEIK U CANT TIPE FIRST IN THE FRIST POST IT MAKES ME SOOO MAD. WTFFFF”

    Get over it.

    And yes, I realize the irony in my post, posting about people that post about Firsts. It’s a vicious cycle.

    Cal may get it, but he apparently doesn’t get all of it. C’mon Cal, you don’t even know about Jorts? It is kinda like Loretta Lynn in Coal Miner’s Daughter not knowing what “horny” means.

    I’ll miss Josh lots…plays hard every game, gives it everything he has! Proud to have seen him play this year and glad he was the “one” who stepped up and filled the lane this year!

    They should go back to the denim uniforms (from 96 I think?) for tomorrow! lol!!

    36 – Yes, Jorts Day would lead one to believe it will be celebrated all day, thus the midnight countdown. If it was called Jorts Game, the countdown would go until 9pm. Ha.

    7 I disagree and do believe that Cal can win a championship. However, everyone that disagrees with you (including me) has the burden of proof on them. History has showed that teams deep in experience win the championships. One only has to look at the past champions and it is clear. The teams that win aren’t loaded with freshmen. Now back to my disagreeing. If a team can have 4 or five solid experienced players on top of bringing in a few top notch freshmen, then they can win it all.

    KSR readers please answer me a question. Why when #7 being attacked for mentioning biblical things and the people that are rude and telling him to fuk himself get by with no replies. The people that started cursing should be attacked as well. Not all of us here want to read retarded attempts at people trying to sound big. So maybe those people should go to a site where cursing is thought well of. If your going to attack, try being fair both ways with it.



  43. SexnNursinHomes

    42- well, I’ll answer it. The guy’s post reeked with absolutism. Cal has been here 1.8 years. #7 has no clue what Cal’s recruiting will lead too. So to imply THAT he knows for SURE that Cal will not win a banner with one and dones is pure specualtion. The fact this team has 3 UPPER classmen and they DON’T lead us is the reason why we are having fits. Not because of Knight, Jones, and Lamb. As for the religious part. I don’t give a shit.

    42. Because there is NO place for religion on this site. I am all for everyone’s right to believe in any or no organized religious system, but this is NOT the place to discuss such things. This is a sports–more importantly Kentucky sports–website. Occassionally, there is a political discussion that is brought on by a post or comment, but I am not sure this is the place for that either. I certainly do not come here and read comments to be preached at or “saved”. I’m pretty sure 99% of the readers who come to this site do not either.

    Having said that, I usually just ignore the comments and move on, but since you asked, and since it has been occurring more frequently, I wanted to throw out my two cents. Every time this argument comes up, it reminds me of one of my favorite Nicholson lines.

    http://www.hark.com/clips/stdhnvjprw-sell-crazy-someplace-else-were-all-stocked-up-here

    The assertion that Cal cannot win with one-n-dones is also ridiculous and unverified at this point. Last year’s team was one bad shooting night from the Final Four and, while this year looks to not be a championship team, you never know. Even if Jones and Knight leave, the incoming recruits along with
    our returning experienced veterans, next season looks to be another excellent team who will be in the top 5 or 10 all year and, hopefully, have a shot at the final four and a title. All the rational UK fans want is to be in the conversation for a championship and to have a shot at achieving that. To make a bold proclamation that Cal cannot win the way he is doing it after 1.5 seasons not only shows a complete lack of basketball knowledge, but also a lack in basic comprehension skills as well.

    I don’t get the whole thing with Jean shorts! I wear them all the time in the summer! I could see if they were actual jeans cut into shorts and he looked like a red neck! Jean shorts have never been lame and this is from a guy who wears suits and ties 5 days out of the week. Jorts is the stupidest nickname and I cringe everytime I say it! Damn KSR getting in my brain!

    I’m under 40 and I see a lot of under 40 folks wearing jean shorts. Urban fashions Sean John, Eko and the like sell them to Americas youth. Now people under 40 men even are also wearing jeans so tight they can’t put a dollar in their pocket and getting their lips and eyebrows periced. Tats on their necks and all other unhireable features. If jean shorts are wrong I don’t want to be right!
