Knicks to Curry: No Fatties Allowed

by October 21, 2009

Reportedly, Eddy must shed a lot of weight before he’s allowed to don the blue and orange uniform again: “Patrick Ewing stands a better chance of suiting up for the Knicks next week in Miami than Eddy Curry. Curry, the team’s out-of-shape center who was banished from practicing with his teammates two weeks ago, must meet a certain weight before he will be allowed to rejoin the Knicks. According to a source close to the team, Garden Chairman James Dolan was involved in the decision to keep Curry away from the Knicks until he improved his conditioning … According to a source, Curry has lost weight, but the feeling is that he will have to get down to between 305 and 310 pounds before he can rejoin the team. Curry, 26, is the Knicks’ second highest-paid player this season, earning $10.5 million.”
