    Default Harrellson staying ready - thinks he can fill big role for us

    We've been hearing so much about how Shump's been working out; it's nice to hear at least a little bit about Jorts staying in shape/hoping for basketball too. Hey, maybe this guy can really help us. He's a big boy at 6'10" 275 or so and he's got a good attitude and a little bit of an edge to him..We'll see.

    Thanks for the link.

    Good to see that he has his perspective. A talker of the talk, is The Jorts. Whether or not he has the walk is another question.

    Thumbs up Great pickup in the 2nd round of draft

    The Jorts that played in the NCAA playoffs will be a big-big compliment
    in the Knicks low-post for 24 minutes of playingtime his rookie season.

    Jorts bigbody screening on offense will help Amare/Melo/Billups/TD/and
    Shump have alot of open looks. He will have a lot of work to do on his
    boxing-out of the paint, switching-off down low, and communicating on
    defense throughout his rookie season, b/c the NBA have more bigman
    movement than the NCAA.

    ^ i agre with kiya. but 24 minutes is probably a bit much for him coming in off the bat. I'd say we'd see him for about 15 mins a game, unless he has a great impact. He'll probably work his way up to 24 minutes by seasons end though.

    Remember, we're dealing with Dantoni here so you can't think in logical basketball sense. He could go from 7 min to 15 back to 7 min to DNP-CD.
