Eddy Curry: Still Eddy Curry

by September 27, 2010

There’s no change when it comes Eddy, who embodies all that is depressing about the Knicks‘ franchise. From the NY Times: “He has never looked more out of place and less relevant to the team’s future. Through two days of practice, Curry has been relegated to the third unit, with the rookies and free-agent invitees. He has slogged through drills. On Saturday night, he was lapped by an entire group of players as they weaved through cones around the court. By the end of Sunday’s practice, the third of camp, Curry was a spectator, watching his teammates jog with medicine balls while he stood near a basket stanchion. He is nursing a tight hamstring, making this the third straight camp that Curry has been injured. ‘Obviously, we’re pushing these guys hard,’ Coach Mike D’Antoni said. ‘He misses anything, it just makes it a little bit tougher.’ Asked if Curry was already behind, D’Antoni said, ‘Well, yeah.’ The setback was almost predictable. Curry reported to camp weighing 325 pounds — a 20-pound increase since April — according to a person in the organization. Team officials had asked Curry to come back closer to 300 pounds. They also asked him to attend voluntary workouts in July and September. Curry never showed. He was the only player not to attend voluntary workouts and scrimmages this month.”
