''Knicks president Donnie Walsh told SI.com that he asked [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] about playing in the summer league, but the veteran center didn't feel he was in basketball shape yet after missing most of last season. Curry, who practiced with the Knicks last week before leaving Las Vegas on Monday, has dropped close to 30 pounds in the last two months to slim down to 328 pounds.
"I think he feels like he has to lose another 20 [pounds] to be able to play," Walsh said.
Walsh added he was pleased with the way Curry looked after struggling with weight and conditioning problems last season.
"I think he has progressed a great deal," Walsh said. "He worked out with us and he looked really light on his feet. It's not a specific weight he has to get to. When he loses fat and gets muscle, he's going to lose weight but not as quickly as everyone might want him to. His [good] weight should be when he can go out there and keep up with our pace."'

He lost some weight but he is still a fat fuk. I'm not optimistic at all with this piece of shut.
I'd be more confident if we had a coach that emphasized defense. I think Curry can be good, the question is will he stay in shape and will Dano know what to do with him.
