So I'm fine with it.

Chalmers
Ray Allen
Miller
Rashard Lewis
Harrellson

We don't even need the big 3 any more with all the 3s we will be making.:drool:

He's extremely slow and after his hand injury his jumpshot just disappeared, he was terrible.

He is a very solid post/perimeter defender for a man his size and he hustles. Definite upgrade over Eddy.

NYKnickFanatic
09-03-2012, 12:29 PM
Very solid. He is a good post defender and he can step out and knock shots down.
But this was before he broke his hand, he was rusty as **** after that.
But I can see him getting back into form. Nice signing.

He was hitting shots at a decent rate before his hand injury. After that he was extremely terrible offensively. If his hand is 100% Miami got a nice piece who can also hit a 3 but that's solely dependent on him actually playing like he did out of College.

disagreement followed by questioning is entirely different than talking back and being defiant--the latter of which is rude. People who talk back in front of a class usually have either an inflated sense of self or feel the need to try and impress their peers.

That being said--good for Josh, glad he landed somewhere nice. And I have never heard of him being a troublemaker.

my homie DMF, I'm a Knicks fan. I can tell you 100% Eddy Curry is a bust. He's the equivalent of Brad Miller in the post. That's just being force fed the ball. His footwork is a joke, defense he knows not what you speak of there, he was one of the worst rebounding bigs I can recall. Tyson Chandler kept this dude looking like a decent talent while he was defending both their post ops and getting the boards in Chicago.

In reality Eddy Curry never had the fire to begin with for NBA ball. He is 100% the opposite of players that work hard. His fire pre-basketball was to be a gymnast. I kid you not there people. And everytime he needs money for rent, or food, or whatever, he does this I can play in the NBA shtick.

He isn't that big of man protecting the rim Miami needed, but he is a good 3pt shooter and that's another thing Miami wanted. With Wade and Lebron as two of the best playmakers in the game, there are gonna be a lot of open 3s. Allen, Lewis, Battier, Chalmers, Harrelson...

I know that. Hey Amar'e's brother died too. This is the NBA. And pre-gf and daughter, this was still Eddy Curry. I'm sorry for that, this is not the subject. There are plenty of players in the NBA who deal w/ these things. It doesn't change the fact Eddy was a bust.

When we had coach Zeke coaching, he was force feeding him the ball 2 inches from the rim he'd drop a few points. It was easy, run it down and before the defense set his fatass would run to a spot and put the ball in the hole. His peak was the game vs Toronto in MSG where he outdueled Chris Bosh, past that Eddy was inconsistant, low IQ, turnover the ball in key spots, never wanted to hustle for a rebound and never played D.

i'm glad you can use the past tense. HAHAH who cares if Eddy is known around the globe- he's know around as a fat *** who can't get into game shape. What makes you say that two top 10 players in Wade and Lebron almost got him into shape will guarantee anything in Brooklyn, a team that probably has less influence to get him into shape.

Eddy Curry and Andre Blatche are there to fill up the bench. anything you get from them is extra ...but you shouldn't be expecting anything.

No, sucking at basketball is what makes him bad.

Eddy Curry doesn't suck at basketball.

There are 2 problems here for him:

Injuries & Reputation.

He has dealt with so many injuries that at this point in his career that its become expected to see him courtside in a suit, and as he is now 30 years old it will only be even harder for him to come back. That leads to his reputation where as now he's even being wrongly considered by some to be a "draft bust" simply due to what happened in NY. No team is going to give a player with his reputation a featured role in the rotation right now. Any team he signed for, he would literally have to be playing great in practice just for him to crack the rotation.

Miami didn't play him because by the time he declared himself to be 100% towards the end of the year, their rotation was already set and they didn't have the time to work him in there as their low post scoring C.

D'Antoni didnt want to play him because he was injured & terribly out of shape not just for basketball but for a "healthy" man in general.

This is the first offseason for Eddy Curry in awhile where he actually is in satisfactory basketball shape and "healthy".

If you are a center and can't get any minutes on the team witht he worst center rotation in the league, then there is something wrong with you.

They signed Curry because they were desperate. They let him go because it turned out they weren't that desperate after all.

I think KMart would have been a great pick up... and who knows.. it may happen, and Birdman I like, but he's fallen out of the rotation in Denver for a reason. Blatche... I think it would be wise for Miami to pass on him.


Harrellson is a double-double player with starting minutes... that's pretty good, and they signed him for next to nothing AND he can shoot the 3-ball... so I think he's actually a good fit and I wouldn't think any Heat fans would be acting like "homers" if they thought this was a great signing.


But KMart... yeah....

He was never a good 'shot" maker. I agree with most people, he is on par with Eddy Curry...very terrible player.

You're an idiot. He's far from Eddy Curry. He is not a scrub either and Miami fans will soon find out if he gets minutes.

Harrellson is not a good defender. I don't know where Knicks fans are getting that idea. I guess it goes in hand with the "Carmelo can play good defense" or "Danilo Gallinari plays good defense" thought lines too... AKA ignorance of what good defense actually is.

Don't see Harrellson buying minutes over Haslem if he does indeed make the final 15 roster.

a team like miami doesnt need a kmart or blatche (although it would be nice ) they just need some solid role players that can come in and fill in some of the weaknesses the heat have

josh harrellson is a good rebounder and a big body in the paint . good pickup

He's absolute ****

For whatever reason, he's deluded himself into thinking he's a good 3 pt. shooter which completely cancels out the things he's somewhat decent at (rebounding and occasionally defense).

Harrelson SUCKS!

Knick fans are just saying positive stuff about him because he is good compared to their players

Damn, Jorts is a really good hustle and low post defender with a big body similar to Nick Collison. He rebounds at a really good rate as well.

Good pickup by Miami.

How so? Jorts has a lot of weight on Collison and is closer to 6'7 than his listed height at 6'10. Not to mention he has absolutely no vertical lift which, combined with his height, is why he consistently gets his shot blocked.

Needless to say, I didn't very much care for Jorts when he was on the Knicks

Definitely a solid pick up. Like others said he can hit the 3 ball on occasions, he rebounds and plays ok defense at times. Not consistent at all which I think is his problem but I'm sure Miami isn't expecting him to be a stud because he won't but he will provide that Janitor role doing all the dirty work

You are dumb. Harrellson is a solid defender and rebounder. I guess that happens to people from Miami that think Chris bosh is a the next Kareem and Dwade is better than Jordan. Stick to your beaches and clubs, cause your basketball knowledge isn't on point.

Why do you seem mad that I'm telling the truth about Knick fans' lack of good defense assessment? You fans have said both of those statements about Carmelo and Gallinari, I'm not making anything up.

Harrellson is just average he is not good. And this high rebound rate you guys talk about isn't even that high. He didn't crack the top 70.

Just because you see 1 or 2 fans say Danilo was solid on defense doesn't mean the whole fan base believes that lol. I can't recall anyone honestly believing Gallo was a solid defender here

I am not one of these fans who pretend a guy is better than he is because my team just signed him. This guy is a scrub. Completely annoyed we couldn't get Birdman, KMart, or Blatche.

lmfao. Harellson is a fan favorite all day. I think you'll be eating these words..

He's an average player.

He'll do well in Miami, just dont relegate him to spot up shooting, it isnt really his game.

I loved Jorts and think he will do very well if given the minutes, he was horrible on offense after his broken hand but he plays with alot of heart. He will become a fan fav if he gets his shot back and just plays his game all hustle!!

If you don't think Carmelo is even capable of playing good defense, you're ignorant. And Gallo is an underrated defender. He's not an elite athlete but he puts in effort on that end and isn't bad.

Bottom line is that he is a upgrade over Curry

so good pick up

Bottom line is Harrelson is gonna lock down Dwight in the paint. It's not even close. Riley got em all discounted.

I think what he stated was a generalization statement. Its true that Carmelo does not have a reputation of playing good defence... even when he is at times. Same goes for Gallo. So in a sense, he is correct.

Nothing wrong with what he said.

I know Harrellson, followed him since HS. I'm a huge UK fan so when he got drafted, he became one of my favorite NBA players. Thought he didn't really have a place in this league, so I didn't expect much. Then he comes in and becomes a fan favorite in NY, and starts getting Pts and Rbs, and even moreso minutes when I didn't think he would get many at all from the start. I think the kid has more heart than you can find in most NBA players and will do anything your team needs to help. He is a major upgrade over Curry and Pittman. Great player for his role. Comes in, knocks down jumpers, grabs boards, and provides intensity when the team needs it. He hasn't signed anything with Miami, but is being invited to a Pre-Training camp workout to show what he has. He will make it. And he will make the 15 man roster. The kid deserves it more than anything. Proud of the kid.

Great info, thanks. Sounds like he will fit in the HEAT culture. Im curious as to why you didnt think he had a place in this league though?

First of all, Harrellson was given a week long tryout with the heat 3 days ago.

second, no agreement was made, he still has 4 more days, and has to go through training camp and preseason.

as for the idiots saying harrellson is garbage,
http://www.capitalnewyork.com/article/sports/2012/09/6535541/knicks-will-be-seeing-lots-josh-harrellson-after-all


his per 36 is 9.6 rebounds, and he shot 34% from 3. not bad.

he is obviously better than any center on the heat roster.

so if the heat sign him, it would be just fine with me.
end of discussion.
and end of thread.

This guy sucks, he isn't an "enforcer" no matter how bad people try to make it seem like he is, he can't finish around the rim so he stands around the perimeter and chucks airball 3's all day which is even more frustrating.

The guy doesn't shut anybody down, we can stop that assumption right now.

my homie DMF, I'm a Knicks fan. I can tell you 100% Eddy Curry is a bust. He's the equivalent of Brad Miller in the post. That's just being force fed the ball. His footwork is a joke, defense he knows not what you speak of there, he was one of the worst rebounding bigs I can recall. Tyson Chandler kept this dude looking like a decent talent while he was defending both their post ops and getting the boards in Chicago.

In reality Eddy Curry never had the fire to begin with for NBA ball. He is 100% the opposite of players that work hard. His fire pre-basketball was to be a gymnast. I kid you not there people. And everytime he needs money for rent, or food, or whatever, he does this I can play in the NBA shtick.

Haha, I agree with everything you said except the Brad Miller part. He had a long career with good teams, was a decent rebounder, VERY good passer and a stand-up teammate. Show the man some love!!

Not bad for the Heat at all. At this point for them, any big is good news. Bosh can't be happy playing center full time and replacing Eddy Curry isn't hard to do...
