Yeah this is why his ass has to work hard and earn the starting job! If he sucks, he gets benched and let him keep working hard. @ that point that is the end of that project. If we can't find takers, we will have the take the hit.
Eddy Curry will play so well that it will attract Lebron to come here ^^^^^ buhahahahaha that's the funniest sh*t ever lay off the peyote man

As much as i would like to dream about curry dominating (which he should with his size), we already know this wont happen. We seen him when he was in shape...he was a beast in the paint when going 1 on 1 against a defender, but he was turnover prone and didnt know how to pass out of the double team. He doesnt rebound or defend, and hes not built for a quick tempo system. Our best bet and only bet is to trade him. I dont wanna see him fail, and i hope he does good wherever he goes but hes gotta go.
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]Eddy Curry failed to impress New York Knicks management after forgetting to bring his sneakers to a workout in Las Vegas.
Management had high hopes for the center, who has trimmed down substantially during the offseason. The team hired a personal trainer that helped the center lose about 30 pounds.
During his Vegas workout, however, Curry failed to impress. He reportedly appeared listless during brief workouts. The fact that Eddy Curry forgot his sneakers probably didn't help matters.
Curry's been known to have the occasional workout blunder. Last year, Curry was so heavy [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
LOL! What a douche bag!
I know.... At least Curry got us going for 24 hours this year, before reality slaps us in the face. FORGET YOUR SHOES? Man....
Surprise people think Curry can fit in this offense.
Or anywhere else for that matter.
Its over guys...move on.
I agree with all of the positive aspects Eddy brings to the table. I feel that us TRUE Knicks, have to stick by Curry for one more season, especially since he proved to the team that he is somewhat dedicated to getting back on track. I cannot wait to see him play, as he has looked good in practice. I say kepp Curry this year, hopefully he plays like the old Curry for multiple reasons: So he can get burn instead of benchwarming. To attract other teams' interest b/c he wants to start fresh with a new team.
So, if he can help the Knicks obtain a winning record this year which will also attract the heavily coveted FA's of next year, the Knicks would be in a win/win situation, for once.
this is just hype with Curry... at well over 300 pounds, this guy is just gonna be the same lumbering brick and wont be worth **** to any team any time soon.
Im not gonna be fooled by all the spin laid down by his trainer and agent... Im just hoping they talk enough bull**** to entice Houston or whoever to get him off our payroll
Even if Curry got in shape, which I doubt he actually did, he would be horrible in this system. He would totally kill our offensive chemistry. This offense is predicated on ball movement, Curry is a blackhole. Pass it to him, the possession will most likely end in a turnover. Plus, any offense he creates is diminished because of his lack of defense and rebounding. He plays a losing style of basketball. I don't want any part of him this season. Hopefully we can trade him during the summer.
the only thing curry will dominate .. is the buffet table
Curry needs another big contract because, for whatever reasons, it appears he has spent more than he has made to date. I believe he is motivated. I also believe that his trainers have a good plan.
From what I have read, it appears that Curry did not start his current regimen until the second half of May at which time he weighed in at 358 pounds. He is now 328. There are two more months before the pre-season training begins. It is anticipated that he will come in at somewhere between 300 and 315 pounds. His trainers suggest that a good portion of that weight will have substituted fat for muscle and that Curry will be well conditioned. We are not going to know how true this might be until Curry starts running the floor in game like situations.
But an in shape Curry still will not thrive in a D'Antoni system. He could thrive in a slower half court system.
We are stuck with Curry until he shows something more than a 30 pound loss from a ridiculous 358 pounds. Only then will we be able to ship him out.
I still see him with Houston, but later rather than sooner.
