Eddy Curry MIA During Knicks’ Summer League

Summer League ended without New York seeing or hearing much from their big fella. From the NY post: “The Knicks ended their Las Vegas summer league yesterday and Eddy Curry was never seen. And he’s tough to miss. Curry blew off summer league the way he has blown off the last three seasons of his Knicks career. Knicks officials were told he would come and never heard a reason why he did not. Curry is believed to be holed up in Chicago, where his wife recently gave birth. After Curry played just 10 games in the last two seasons, the Knicks would have loved to see him out on the floor competing with the young prospects to get some basketball under him.  But at the very least, Curry should have been here meeting with the coaches and working out for a few days with the other Knicks, especially newcomers Amar’e Stoudemire, Anthony Randolph and Russian center signee Timofey Mozgov. Wilson Chandler also was on hand. Coach Mike D’Antoni put a positive spin on the Curry’s absence, but gave a very clear warning: He had better be ready in late September, or his time in Milan and Paris (where the Knicks will play preseason games at the start of October) will be as a tourist — not a basketball player. ‘I’d be stupid if not being here would sway it,’ D’Antoni told The Post. ‘But he’s got to be ready when training camp opens. He’s got to be ready.”‘

    In an unrelated story, NY Burger Kings are experiencing extreme shortages of the angry Whopper.

    Knicks fans get ready…for the laziest defensive frontcourt the league has seen.

  • Drew

    As soon as his contract expires can the League just drop his ass for good. I don’t want to see any more teams throwing money at this dude. If you’re going to throw money at him to do nothing you might as well throw it at me instead.

    They should just let him play. I mean, he DID average like 17 points or something that one year right?

    still getting paid. has a higher paid and worse employee ever held their position longer than this? it’s a record in the history of all employment. this goes beyond loathing the knicks as a basketball organization, this is just one of their many examples of how not to run a company. and they’re still the most profitable NBA team. hooray. throw 10s and 10s more millions at some more garbage.

    The only thing Eddy Curry needs in his life is a tall cliff and a deep crevice!

    Why did they expect him to play in summer league. And the story says HIS WIFE JUST GAVE BIRTH! Any other player would be congratulated, but no, everyone just hates on eddy, heres to good health for eddys child

  • MikeC.

    Eddy wasn’t able to call D’Antoni because his fingers are too fat to dial a phone, and voice dialing doesn’t work when your mouth is full of food.

  • MikeC.

    “Eddy Curry’s expiring contract” is going to be an oft-repeated phrase until February. Teams looking to cut payroll and get under the cap will be ringing up Donnie Walsh with some decent offers this year.

  • Mellmeister

    c’mon, like there’s sumthin’ new with eddy curry not going on summer league, if he can’t show up on a regular season game, why would he in summer league? Besides, Eddy Curry gives back to NY by buying from all foodstalls before and after he leaves MSG. :P hahahahaha!

  • JTaylor21

    Well maybe if he was MIA from every buffet line people would talk less sh*t about him, tarzan. Also congrats on the child, eddy.
