    Default Ok I know I'm going to get negative rep points for this one!

    LOL, I have gone over this in my head for awhile, and I know I'm gonna get it for this but......I really think Eddy Curry could help us out significantly! Ok stop laughing and give me a chance to explain.

    Ok first off the idea that he is a franchise player is over! I think it was a nice try by Isiah but he just isnt that sought of player, he doesnt have the qualities needed to lead any team. Having said that I can see him a pretty nice role player. Last year was a bad year for him and he put up 14 pts and a pathetic 4 rebs per in 25 mins. Those are horrible numbers for a player dubbed the frachise player, but, very solid role player numbers. Now we all know that Eddy's production fell because he played a long side of Zach Randolph, but ofcourse now it isnt an issue anymore. Now I'm not suggesting we start him, I think even those days are gone for Eddy Winslow, but David Lee and Mike Dantoni talked about inserting him in to help wear down big men at the end of the game and I think they may be on to something.

    Now there are still some very big hurdles to overcome; 1.Eddy has yet to practice with the team since the regular season started, not to mention he was already out of shape and Dantoni said he isnt playing Eddy until he is in playing shape. Translation: Eddy may not be seen until sometime around the trade deadline!

    2. Eddy will need to do what he has never been good at...pass!: Ok lets just say Mike D and our trainers can get him in decent shape (stop laughing again!), the deal breaker would have to be the fact that Eddy simply cant pass the ball! But if Mike Dantoni can make a halfway decent passer out of Zach it isnt completley improbable to think he can do the same for Eddy is it?

    Look all I know is that currently we have zero scoring options in the post. I think that 3 pt shooting will win us games but we need to score more consitently inside, and there is no one better on the block on our team than Eddy!

    Look I know Eddy's lack of work ethic has pissed off most Knick fans and I'm still one of them who are pissed with him but Mike is going to have to realize that he is no Dwight Howard nor Amare, but he is the best he has on the team in regards to low post scoring...bottom line as much as I hate Jerome James (and beleive me I really hate him) if I thought he could somehow help us I would be all for it!

    100% agreed. You can only cook with what you have.
    He's played well in the past. Give him a shot. He's big and we're gonna need him through the next 2 months against bigger teams.

    SMH, You're better than that New New York. Eddy Curry is a cancerous player. He has no defense, rebounding, passing, foul shooting, conditioning, or effort. He and Quentin Richardson have been a major part of the Knicks' failure, these last 3 years. It's not their fault Isiah Thomas traded for them, but still.

    i wouldnt say hes cancerous, but abcd hit the nail on what curry doesnt have. but as a role player, in limited minutes i wudnt mind (nd defense doesnt matter). if he can get in better shape (i highly doubt it) i wudnt mind the knicks giving him 10-15 min

    The problem with Eddy has never been talent, it's his work ethic. Last I heard, he had a problem with his knee that was stopping him from training. I don't know if that's healed or not, but he has to work hard to get back in shape if it is. If he does get in shape, then we have to play him. If nothing else, he provide some much needed size. I wouldn't give him too many minutes, just some here and there when our shots aren't hitting or we're facing a team with a lot of size. Problem is, I doubt he will get in shape. If he hasn't cared enough to get in good shape so far, why would anything change? But if he does, I'm all for playing him.

    co-sign we give him a weight he must reach he gets there he plays as simple as that if he wants to play he better earn it....his fat ass aint no different from all the players that had to work hard to play(Lee,Chandler Nate etc.)

    I once said Eddie Curry would be a Shaq like player. That wasn't an original thought or that far fetched of a prediction at the time because even Shaq said Curry would be a dominate center in the league once he's gone. But Curry is just ****ing lazy. It's not a question of can he do it, it's a question of does he want to do it. The **** you guys have talked about, rebounding, blocking and passing out of double teams doesn't take much talent. You do need to be tall or be able to jump to get a board, but if you are tall and have a decent wing span shot blocking shouldn't be much of an issue. It's just a matter of effort. I agree that Curry 'can' be a good role player, maybe even a third scoring option, but he's got to lay off of the fried Twinkies and live in the gym. Curry's at a crossroads. He can move forward and be a productive player, maybe even an All-star one day (he came close before and there aren't many centers left in the league) but if he doesn't get his **** together he'll just be another wasted talent.

    My rep power didn't go down. It was always 2. For some reason, I have 49 reputation points, but my rep power is still 2. It should be at least 5, but whatever.
