Tracy Morgan Visits The Daily Show, Gets Excited For Knicks Playoff Action

Knicks fans are justifiably excited to see their team back in the playoffs, even if expectations for the playoff run aren't especially high. Among those excited: Tracy Morgan, who paid a visit to The Daily Show last night to promote his new movie Rio...and did it sporting a Knicks jersey.
Host Jon Stewart remarked on Morgan's "'Melo arm" (indeed, Morgan was wearing a sleeve on his right arm eerily similar the one Carmelo Anthony sports here). Why was Morgan doing this, apart from just being Tracy Morgan? In his words: "The Knicks might need me to suit up, so I'm ready." Stewart replied, "I would love to see you out there." Ditto.
Then, the two discussed the Donald Trump birther controversy for a while, as well as the potency of Morgan's sperm. This, of course, provided a natural segue back into Knicks playoff basketball, and Morgan had a few words of warning for Knicks doubters:
"Don't sleep on us. And if you do sleep on us, don't snore."
Words to live by. See the above line, Morgan speculating on the identity of his biological father, and Tracy Morgan in general below. (Oh, and thankfully, this didn't come up.)
