I played a big part in all of the Eddie Curry jokes....but all jokes a side....when Curry came back to the team after his off the court family lost he seem to want something to do to take his mind off of what just happen to his family.
The Knicks had a little over 27 games left in the season when Curry return....inwhich the Knick rotation could've used a 5 minute Curry in the 2nd qtr. of each game to get him into game shape plus practice halfcourt low-post moves with a center during games for just 5 minutes.
The Knicks having 25 games left in the season would've looked decent adding 3 new players into their rotation (C-Curry, PF-Wilcox, and SG-Hughes) for 5 to 10 minutes of playingtime each in the first half of each game.
The steady playingtime given to these 3 players would've had each player working hard at applying their best talents in the short minutes of playingtime:
1) Curry is a low post scorer (only good talent)
2) Wilcox is a slashing put-back rebounder with size to blockout
3) Hughes is a Big-Guard adding defense to the passing lane
Giving these 3-players short playingtime for them to perform at their best talents would've been a start to getting the rest of the players in the rotation to stop deterring from playing to their best talents.
Curry would've been the best player to use as a sample to all his teammates to start playing and performing at the talents they do best and so well....
Larry Hughes has no offense so pass the ball and stop acting like he is Lebron James running the ball up court to shoot it himself (Nate too at times), Jefferies is no jump-shooter so he should look to pass the ball and commit 5 hard fouls defending the paint, Q.Rich is a catch and shoot player so stop dribbling the ball and help on defending the passing lane and rebounding, Lee should shoot the ball 15 ft and closer to the basket and commit hard fouls by defending by putting his bigbody on defender with 6 minutes remaining in the game, and in the 4th qtr. the guards Duhon, Nate, and Hughes should always help their bigmen teamates defend the paint by commiting the foul first so their bigmen dont get call for the foul....thats how the Spurs keep Duncan out of foul trouble in crunchtime.
Giving Eddie Curry his first playingtime of the season (2 minutes) with 10 games left in the season shows what purpose when knowing Curry history???
