    He’s setting up on the perimeter. He’s probably not used to that role yet but it makes sense to put him out there since he sets good screens and has a nice jump shot. He fumbled one pass but looks good otherwise.

    It’s actually cool now that you can turn on the NBA and watch some ol CATS! Hope Liggins gets some time later too.

    I was so fixated on Jorts that I just noticed something. The Knicks are for real.

    I absolutely love college basketball, especially the Cayuts, but can’t stand the NBA! Im extremely surprised there seems to be no fall-out from the fans point of view after the lockout.

    Its a good sign that Harrellson gets playing time in the first game in the first quarter. To me that says alot. He may actually get to play some instead of being a high paid cheerleader.I was actually surprised to find out that he had made the team. With no training camp or no pre-season, I sure didn’t expect him to get in a game this quick. Congratulations!!! Just shows you how hard work and dedication, and Coach Cal, can pay off.

    Rondo vs Knicks … there is no player that I would rather watch than #9. So glad the C’s didnt trade him.

    9 minutes of PT for JORTS today…….. getting in and getting some action should be a considered a success and an endorsement from the coach’s that he is going to be given a chance to help the team. No stat line but that will come. Congrats in living out a dream JORTS!

    What is Josh’s salary this season? I’m really happy for him.

    I do believe the announcers once referred to him as the rookie from Ga Tech. 🙁 Oh well, go Jorts!!

    I don’t think any other team did better with a late first round and second round pick than the Knicks did with Shumpert and Harrelson. Two solid pick ups and they did a good job in free agency as well getting Stoudamire some help by signing Chandler.

    Rondo, 31 points 13 assists 5 boards and 5 steals. The most talented point guard to play at Kentucky.
