    Take a look at Channing Frye. Skill-wise, he can block shots, rebound, run the floor, shoot the mid-range jumper, and he had a baby jump hook that he favored in college. Skill-wise, one could make an argument that he has a better all around game than Curry.

    But is he more efficient than Curry? Did he have an impact on the game as much as Curry did in terms of being one of the main focuses of the opposing defense? LaMarcus is talented and a possible jack of more trades, but he was not better than Eddy Curry last year. His rookie season numbers aren't even better than Frye's rookie year.

    Skill-wise, Kwame Brown can probably do everything that Dwight Howard can do. The skills can be equal or greater, but what matters is who utilizes their skills the most.

    LaMarcus is still very young, and who knows, maybe he can put up better numbers than Eddy someday. Nobody knows for sure. However, I think Eddy deserves a bit more credit than comparing him to a guy who is still trying to break out.

    Never compare Kwame and Dwight EVER. Those are two different players. One is scared of rebounding, and is one of the worst "early" first round Center picks in history. Dwight Howard is a monster at rebounding and he is so young.

    Kwame basically has no skills at all. I dont know he might not be comfortable playing in a city like Los Angeles.

    Exactly. People who make these comparisons don't really have much experience in conditioning and preparation mentality. People think talent is harder to obtain than those things. EVERYONE has talent, but only the hardest workers in any sport reach greatness. Dwight Howard is a tremendous worker. Hell, look at Kobe or Nash, these guys just keep getting better with age. GREAT conditioned athletes who never stop learning. Talent and potential is overrated.

    When it comes to being a young BIGMAN Star in the NBA, the main objective is how many consecutive times did he take his "TEAM" to the Post Season Games.

    Shaq: every season since his Rookie season.
    KG: in his 2nd season he went on a 5 or 6 season run.
    Webber: in his 3rd season he went on a 7 season run.
    J.O.Neal: in his 4th season he went on a 4 season run.
    K-Mart: in his second season he went on a 5 season run.
    Amare: he only missed two seasons (out 5) of Postseason since his rookie season.

    Kwame Brown, Wizard Coach Eddie Jordan took Kwame off the 12 man Post season roster his first time making the playoffs. Thats an indication of a coach saying, "You did not help us make the post season games so you cant participate".

    How many Post Season games did Eddy Curry participate in the last 6 seasons?
    That is the reason why so many B-Ball Fans compare Eddy Curry to second season players.

    Bad assumption because no one really thinks like that...who truly expects a 2nd year player to lead his team to the postseason? KG had marbury...shaq had penny, O'neal had multiple star players and supporting cast players around him, and Amare just has steve nash and the matrix on his team...Shaq is the only exception to the rule because he was the major reason that the magics made it to the playoffs and beyond...this assumption has been proved bogus...

    Aldridge is actually the pencil in starter for the Blazers. Do you even watch the NBA? Aldrige is better than Curry at everything except post scoring and with Oden out it just makes Alrdrdge is going to get more minutes at C since he was expected to be @ PF.

    How do you violate our team by proclaiming Eddy Curry is the team? Get out of the forum, Curry groupie, this is a forum for Knick fans.

    Co-sign. Curry isn't even an elite big man at this level. I'm hoping he gets there, but these people will actually try to argue that Curry is the best center in the East, or he has more divine power than Jesus himself.
