With Eddy Curry Around, No Medicine Ball Is Safe

by Marcel Mutoni

Over the years, Eddy Curry fat jokes have become incredibly boring and overdone. But the man makes it impossible for us to avoid them; at times, the jokes write themselves and quite literally come to life on their own.

Curry was at practice yesterday, doing some light stretching (ha!) on a medicine ball when the unthinkable hilarious happened. From the Daily News:

Poor Eddy Curry. He sat on the giant blue physio-ball during a break from Monday’s practice and the ball exploded. Eddy fell and scraped and his wrist but should be okay.

The ball, which is used for stretching exercises, was pronounced dead at the scene

That has to be a first of some kind.

To compound Eddy’s problems, it appears as though he won’t be part of the starting rotation for the Knicks come Opening Night.

    Didn’t Lang campaign for Eddy to be an All-Star at one point?

  • Paul

    FIRST, that’s funny

  • Boing Dynasty

    physio balls and medicine balls arnt actually the same thing, just saying…

  • andrew

    Boing is correct. Also, I sell those things in my store. The Knicks should get a refund. They’re meant to be burst resistant, so if they pop, they don’t explode, they just deflate slowly so as not to injure the user. HA!

  • KayDoub

    you 2 are right, but let’s not forget this story is really to mock at Eddy…..hahahaha….but thank you for letting us know they’re meant to be burst resistant, but apparently Curry is that fat.

    Andrew: I don’t think the balls are Curry-stress tested.

    I’m going to have this mental image of Eddy Curry sitting on an enormous whoopie cushion, with that perpetual “What else can go wrong?” look on his face.

    Oh my god.

  • andrew

    Jukai: I’m going to propose to our supplier that they hire Curry after his NBA career finishes to test them out. Imagine his face on the box “Even I can’t break it!”

    Andrew: He’ll need work when he’s out of the NBA, I suppose.

  • jay

    yeah, At Burger King…

    Mat smith wins.

    Wish you guys had video of this.

    That’s like something you’d read on April Fool’s Day and just assume that it’s made up. It’s too ridiculous.

  • Diesel

    I don’t want to bring the dude’s family into it, but I sat behind Eddie’s sister at a Bulls game once and her head is HUGE. Biggest head I’ve ever seen on a human being.

  • http://another48minutes.blogspot.com Gerard Himself

    Diesel: I’m 5’11 but my head looks like a freakin’melon. I could beat her.

  • niQ

    i didn’t think that was ever possible. thank you eddie curry, you have made my day .hAHAHAH

  • matt

  • Niio

    I could just hear Eddy saying “SEE!! This is why i don’t exercise, you could get hurt doing this!”

  • http://dyalekt.com d.Y.

    You can’t make this sh*t up.

  • Maeng

    Bwhahahahahahahahahahahaha that’s hilarious!


    i’m not even surprised!!!

  • JoeMaMa

    And this is after he supposedly lost a bunch of weight from being sick.
    He’s a rich man’s Ike Austin, sans pre-contract hustle.

    Ladies and gentlemen, your 2009 NEWWWW YORRRRRK KNIIIIIICKSSSS!

  • Diesel

    So who got the better of the Chicago/New York Trade? New York got Curry, who when near 350 pounds can be decent. Chicago got Noah and Thomas, who have both not yet lived up to their potential? Is it possible they both lost?

  • speedy

    Nobody knew that there had been a medicine ball under his a** until the explosion happened.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Pete Casey

    Good foreshadowing of the Knicks’ season.

  • Cupcake

    Sh!t. I really wanna see this.
    Be totally amazing if Sean May and Eddy Curry got together at an all you can eat buffet.

  • http://ethosstrategygroup.com Patrick Lok

    I think you’re talking about a Swiss ball – but imagine if an actual medicine ball had exploded. Those things are dense like dark matter…

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Physio or medicine ball, who cares what’s burst resistant. There are a number of huge guys in the nba who at one time or other sat on physio balls, without having them burst. (Benoit, Shaq, Oliver Miller anyone?). So this is hella funny. Eddy Curry is a joke.

    On Eddy, i know money makes the world go round (pun intended) but be a hero and just annul your contract. Jeez…
