Center Eddy Curry is increasing his chances of generating serious interest from the Heat. Respected Chicago-based trainer Tim Grover said last week that since Curry's workout with Miami in late June, he has lost another 28 pounds and is now at 300.

http://www.prosportsdaily.com/articles/the-biggest-loser-is-eddy-curry-apparently-544788.html

According the NBA Champion Tyson Chandler, Curry is a top 3 center. The Miami Heat are monitoring Mr Curry's progress.

The fact that Eddy Curry is still being looked at by NBA teams is a testament to just how terrible the bigs of this generation are. It's incredible how far they have fallen. I can't explain it.

You guys are missing the point! The fact that he is working his butt off just to get an NBA gig is impressive. He is finally showing love for the game, this guy never cared for the game and he went thru a lot....with his daughter passing away, legal problems, conditioning, ect..

The guy has some nice post moves and will comand the double which will open up the lanes for a slashing wade/lebron and our three point shooters. With bosh bringing out his defender curry can pound the ball against 26 teams and that only leaves players like Howard, Bynum, Chandler, I'm missing another center that can actually guard him 1on1

That's right 20ppg 7rpg 1.5bpg is not good at all! His points are going to down with heat (13ppg?) but I'm sure he is going to focus on rebounding and the heat specialty DEFENSE!

I predict if he makes it, 10ppg 10 rpg 1bpg

This.

Also, with so many that waste their talent... At least he's giving it a shot. gotta respect that IMO
He might not avg 10, but it's not points that they would need from him.

He is just not a good rebounder at all. Amare isnt even a good rebounder and he's a career 9rpg type guy. Eddy average over a block a game ONCE and that was he's third season. Im well aware of his personal issues outside of basketball and I wish him the best but he is not gonna be the player you want him to be at all

Shaq was at 325 with heat? Besides, Riley will only look at him again if he drops another 12-15 pounds which will list him at 285 pounds at 7 feet tall. That's pretty dam good size!

I think 10ppg 10rpg 1 bpg is not asking for much for a guy that is capable reaching those numbers and he is going to play his but off for two reasons. To show he belongs in the NBA and for a bigger contract. The heat
is a non nonsense Orginazation and he would have to be on a strict diet and can't get any trouble or he will be gone!

Nice! You put his worst stats to make him look bad WOW! Who cares if your center avg 0.3 steals? Get real dude. His blocks will go up with the heat since we focus on defense and we have the best mentor in ZO ala (Anthony) as far as his foul trouble, that won't be an issue since he will be a in rotation with 4 other bigs! Ny never really had any other bigs to rotate.

I don't know... I think it's been too long off the NBA court for him.. D'Antoni didn't play the guy in his final seasons. I wish him the best though. Not sure if the Heat are a fit though. He averaged about 7 per game on the boards and in his last semi-full year, he averaged about five... getting to 10 per year (as suggested) considering the conditions seems like a big stretch... I'm thinking he could produce 5-4 coming off the bench for like 14 mins per game at the max.

I posted a few of his defensive stats that happen to be his bad stats as well. see a correlation?

his blocks won't go up...he is coming midway through his prime years all of which he spent obese. how much more athletic can he get? none. he is if anything declining physically. Joel is younger than Curry, how is he a mentor of his? Don't gas yourself up man, your going to be disappointed with the results. Curry is not going to take the heat over the hump. A new coach will.

correction: Anthony is older.

He should only have about another 40 lbs to lose than.

PS: you guys are also forgetting he hasnt actually played NBA ball on a high level in probably 5 years or so.

The only reason he is even trying to make a comeback is because the state wont give him enough food stamps to feed himself.

Haven't we heard this BS from this clown before? Like 5-6 times?

Reminds of a discussion I had with a friend watching a Bulls game the year after they drafted this POC. He argued that Curry had too many tools to fail. I laughed. He said "he's only 20, give him five years to mature" to which I answered "You know what slow, fat, dumb 20 year olds become after five years?--Slow, fat, dumb 25 year olds"
And I was right.

Even if the getting into shape rumor happens to be true, this time, the sixth time around, he'll disappoint, he's Eddy Curry.

Magloire and dampier will be gone, Curry won't even be our top priorty at center, our target would be Dalembert at center. It's just nice to hear a guy that is determined wether it's the game, health, or money. Who cares? It's another big that we can use and it's not just a dead body under the basket in the offensive end like Anthony! He doesn't know what to do with the ball when he gets it. Curry will at least score his 10 points and 6 boards.... Give him at least that!

There's no really not that much true centers in the league and we need a guy that can post up.

I tell you haters will continue to hate! Most of you guys said that the heat won't pass the celtics then the bulls and that we won't make the finals! Well, keep hating because you guys are good at it and we love proving you guys wrong! I'm pulling for you curry and LET'S GO HEAT!

The Heat don't even need a center to get them 20 PPG and take a ton of FGA's away from Lebron Wade and Bosh.

what they need is a purely defensive big, someone like Asik. Just stand there, defend the basket and rebound and thats pretty much it.

How am I making myself look bad? If anything, Curry has put forth mountains of evidence for all of us to criticize.

And you don't think Curry is a perfect example of the broken NBA contract situation? A man who plays well, gets a huge guaranteed contract, and then joins his own version of Man vs Food?

I just simply find it interesting that a few Miami fans are defending him like he is on the roster. Let the man cut weight and show he actually gives a **** for a season or two before we clap our hands that an overpaid, unproductive, non-caring athlete is "making a comeback"

Man you're way too emotional. The guy might be able to do some good things on the court for a team but he doesn't deserve the benefit of the doubt at this point. I hope for his sake that he can figure it out and if he can, it would help a team with a void at centre. But, I'm not optimistic. He was serviceable in his hay and he would be an upgrade over dampier if he's even half of what he once was, but the odds of that are slim (unlike curry himself) to nil.

Let me be the 1st to tell you Curry will never average 10 rebounds per game. He won't even attempt to do that because he will get injured before the season starts if there is one.

I don't get why the Heat are looking at him, that's literally the 1 team in the league I think he can't help. He can't rebound or play defense, so he needs to play on a team where he can put his hands on the ball.

That being said, when he's healthy and in shape, there are very few players better in the low post. After seeing Z-Bo mature, maybe Curry can as well.

LOL. Why are people acting like he'll be the starting center? He'll probably be a 3rd/4th string most of the nights if he's actually signed. And then only if he shows promises he might actually be a rotation player.

If Eddy Curry averages 10 rpg for a full season I'll chop off my wang.

Count me in lol no way he averages 10 or anywhere close to that.

lets say he drops another 30 and is in shape.

will he try to rebound of defend?

That's exactly why I don't understand how a couple Heat fans are so excited.

Even when he was healthy that was a major problem in his game.

Man you're way too emotional. The guy might be able to do some good things on the court for a team but he doesn't deserve the benefit of the doubt at this point. I hope for his sake that he can figure it out and if he can, it would help a team with a void at centre. But, I'm not optimistic. He was serviceable in his hay and he would be an upgrade over dampier if he's even half of what he once was, but the odds of that are slim (unlike curry himself) to nil.

:clap:

Thank you, couldn't have said it better myself. He does no longer get the benefit of the doubt. Let him make it through a full training camp, and get down to 10% body fat (as that is a Heat team rule).

the only reason he's trying to comeback is because he's broke & wants to get payed. don't try & convince yourselves that he's actually fallen back "in love" with the game.

I knew these responses would come from you, and I agree 100%. I don't see a reason why Eddy Curry should be given a pass. He's working hard and losing the weigt, which is great to hear, but the guy hasn't played in how many years? If the Heat fans in here that have been defending him in here the same way they defend LeBron really think that Eddy Curry is going to have a instant impact, then we're in bigger trouble at the center spot than I thought. We need to see how he does in disciplined Heat camp first before we start claiming he'd average 10 rebounds per game on the Heat.:laugh2: He'll be extremely lucky to be even a rotation player on the Heat. If he does make the roster, I predict he'd be our 3rd or even 4th string center.

If we sing Dally like we want, curry wont really mater. But if we go with a Battier/Hill type player instead, then a 285/10% body fat Curry,(for the min) off the bench could still command a double team & help with the scoring, for a team that was last in the league in scoring off the bench.

8 points & 5 rebounds in 20 min of the bench is the most in can see at the top of his game. But it would still be enough.

& that's not counting all the vet ring chasers that will want to jump on board that could probably wind up being better options anyways.

I'm pulling for the guy and just giving my opinion and predictions and I'm getting torn up! Even from my fellow heat fans.. Lol! Listen, I'm not saying the guy is going to be the savior or even a starter but I think if the guy is working his but off, I think he will push to get big numbers to A) Get a extension B) Get paid!

That's right 20ppg 7rpg 1.5bpg is not good at all! His points are going to down with heat (13ppg?) but I'm sure he is going to focus on rebounding and the heat specialty DEFENSE!

I predict if he makes it, 10ppg 10 rpg 1bpg
This guy's delusional. Those were his numbers when Isiah forced him to be the star of the team, a wacky experiment which I hope you remember failed miserably.

Looks like lard assss is looking for another team to sit on the bench and collect money and use it on every Chinese Buffet in sight. I do hope the Heat sign him, 10 rebounds? What a crock of sheet. Even when he was playing his best ball he averaged 7 rebounds tops. I can see Lebron and Wade already giving Eddy dirty looks and throwing their hands up in the air as they wait for him to get his fat assss up and down the court.

I'm aware that was his only good year! Relax!!! I'm just saying that is what he woul be the numbers he would shoot for but that won't happen in a heat uniform! So, I think IMO he will be closer to a 10 10 but again those numbers all depend on his conditioning and his minutes.

What team do you root for? Lets see your team pay him millions over a 7 year period so he can park his fat assss on the bench and steal millions from your team after the 6th time he was supposedly "working hard". Then we'll see how much you like him after that.

08-15-2011, 10:38 AM
You guys are missing the point! The fact that he is working his butt off just to get an NBA gig is impressive. He is finally showing love for the game, this guy never cared for the game and he went thru a lot....with his daughter passing away, legal problems, conditioning, ect..



I think you're missing the point and you're beyond delusional. Curry got paid big cash from the Knicks and couldnt/wouldnt/refused to stay in any type of shape.

How is it impressive he's working his butt off to get a gig? You think every guy who gets an invite to summer camp doesnt do the same? How is he showing love for the game when he's been one of the single biggest busts because of his laziness and horrendous attitude?

If he never cared for the game in the first place and couldnt bother to get his *** in playing shape for millions, this time will be no different. This garbage pre-dates his child dying btw.

Good luck to you bandwagon heat fans that want him. Any fan of the game of basketball wouldnt want an underachieveing waste of space that wont get into shape and then gets a plethora of mysterious injuries.

Eddy curry averages 0.3 stls, 0.7 blks & 4.3 fouls per 36 min throughout his career. You're better off trading for Bargnani @ C then signing this guy. Real talk.

for sure. a Bosh/Bargnani frontcourt would surely succeed. :facepalm:

Shocking that he'd lose a ton of weight after his contract runs out. Even more shocking that some of you are dumb enough to believe he could get 10-10-1.5 and draw double teams. In his prime he was an awful rebounder.

Shmontaine
08-15-2011, 11:10 AM
he will only draw doubles because he takes up so much of the court, it would be impossible not to draw a double...

136 would become permanent jump shooters with this fool clogging the lane...

08-15-2011, 11:15 AM
He's 28 years old and shot 57.6% from the field as a 24 year old while being the primary focus on a ****** team where he was constantly doubled. The guy has talent, there's no reason for people to deny that. Even if he's just playing 10 minutes per game, he can put up 6 points and 3 rebounds a game on over 55% shooting if he's in remotely decent shape, I find it hard to believe there aren't quite a few teams who would want that.

He averaged 13 and 4.5 in 58 games TWO years ago on a Mike D team, why would anyone think he's more than a 12th man at this point.

Teams (esp. Miami lately) love to have big guys on the bench, but its nothing more than that.

Whoa. Whoa there. I was entirely relaxed in my post, you're the one who seems to freaking out because everyone is serving you a dose of the truth and your blind homerism for the Heat has been easily sniffed out.

Point is, his best season, when he was receiving a ton of mins, he still only managed 7rpg. And that's as a 7 footer on a team that lacked rebounding.

You truly must be whacked out if you think Curry will come anywhere near 10rpg with so much time away from the game, an awful work ethic and since he still refuses to jump even a half an inch off the ground. It's 100% impossible.

This story has been the same tale for years now. Eddy is losing weight, he's on his way back, oh wait a min he's injured again becuase his legs can't support his tubby lardbutt.

Just except it dude. You don't want him on your team. Trust.

Him working out this hard puts him in a good position to come in and prove himself. I dont see anything wrong with signing him for the minimum once he gets in game shape.

I don't get why the Heat are looking at him, that's literally the 1 team in the league I think he can't help. He can't rebound or play defense, so he needs to play on a team where he can put his hands on the ball.

That being said, when he's healthy and in shape, there are very few players better in the low post. After seeing Z-Bo mature, maybe Curry can as well.

He has the same agent as Lebron. My guess is the Heat have 0 interest in him, but are trying to hype him up around the league as a favor to Lebron's agent. It's really the only thing that makes sense. Anthony is much better than Curry on an overall basis. And besides, Curry NEEDS THE BALL to be remotely effective ..... just makes no sense that Miami really has legit interest.

The fact that Eddy Curry is still being looked at by NBA teams is a testament to just how terrible the bigs of this generation are. It's incredible how far they have fallen. I can't explain it.

While true, people forget how good Curry was before D'Antoni came along. Nearly an allstar.
Miami could catch lightning in a bottle with him.
