http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/basketball/knicks/2011/04/02/2011-04-02_former_knicks_bust_eddy_curry_works_out_for_miami_heat_and_could_land_a_spot_on_.html

Curry got a buyout from the Wolves last March. No use having a fat player right? Not according to the Heatles, who may sign him to add another "physical center."

This makes me sick.

I can't believe this. A guy who gets out of shape and can't play for two non-championship caliber teams can still find his way to play for a possible championship team when other players like Antonio Daniels and Joe Alexander play real hard, and real physical, yet they can't find a spot on an NBA roster despite tearing up the D League.....

Assuming you're talking about Antonio, yes, he's in the D League this year looking for one more shot at an NBA gig. I'm disappointed that he hasn't gotten one.

Nancy Lieberman has done a good job to showcase Daniels as well as Joe Alexander, who I'm confident will get another NBA job next season.

If you're big, you have a spot in the NBA. No matter how ridiculously unskilled, unmotivated, and out of shape you are.

If Eddy Curry gets signed by MIA I would be shocked. They could use the extra big body and boy have you got one in Eddy Curry. He's a lazy, unmotivated, and turnover prone sack of shit who hasn't played meaningful minutes in 2 1/2 years. Curry is a real close friend of James much like Mike Miller is. That's what brought Miller to MIA. And at one point some Knicks fans in denial as well as sports writers said it would be Curry's bond with James that would bring James to NY. That was 1 reason we kept him longer than we should. That and the fact that he had an untradeable contract. Curry in MIA doesn't add up with a PBO the likes of Pat Riley who demands a strict workout regimen for his players and they have to fit his requirements and get a bill of health to his liking. Curry doesn't have that but alas he's a big round body. If MIA does get him and if NY does play MIA in the playoffs rest assured I would boo Curry with authority. It would be funny as shit to see Curry on the Heat. If he actually gets some burn in the playoffs it be funny if it's a continuation of the Eddy Curry statline 4 rebounds, 6 turnovers (mostly through steamrolling and knocking the defender down cause he's impatient). Only this time he won't be the 19 PPG scorer he once was or the NBA leader in pts in the paint anymore. He won't be getting 40 pts with his 375 lb frame.

If Curry gets to Miami just because LeBron likes him, that will be unacceptable. With Mike Miller going to Miami, he filled a need for them, and he is a good player (eons ahead of James Jones) though he had an injury this year. The fact that he's cool with LeBron is a plus, but Miller is a solid player.

Dwyane is the leader of the team, and should be the soul of that franchise until he's traded. It's just like the Celtics where Paul Pierce is the heart and soul though KG is the screamer.

Of course Miller is a solid player. He has been injured for a number of years and sometimes plays too unselfishly for all his talents. The guy could cover a stat sheet in many ways. That's why he was in good demand. I know for a fact NY threw good money @ him. He would of fit our system well and it would've allowed him the opportunity to play up to par with his Memphis days. SA also offered him a good contract. And I'm sure there were other buyers that would've liked to obtain his services in a more private sphere (not addressed by the media). However, he made his decision and a large part of that was because he's buddy buddy with Bron. Can't deny that. It was a good move by MIA though he's a necessity and it would help if he ever gets himself healthy.

We offered something to him too I believe but the chances were slim.

Yep and then you guys gave Josh Howard the 1 yr contract extension. No worries though he'll soon be gone and you'll still have the promising young talents of Young & Crawford to further develop. And hopefully that comes with good picks as well. Try bringing Sloan out of his Salt Lake City home too. I know it won't look right to see him with anyone but the Jazz. But having him elsewhere is better than that having him at all. Sloan has stated that he's expressed interest if a franchise comes calling. And Washington can be that franchise. I'm not really sold on Flip. Never was really and I think his time is up in the Beltway too.

Flips time hasn't even begun yet. He's the coach for at least another 5 seasons.

I wouldn't wanna take Sloan given how many separate cores Flip has had to coach in the last couple seasons. I think he's really enjoying being part of a rebuilding team and teaching players, something he got to enjoy in Minny especially with KG's development from teen prodigy to MVP but something he didn't get to do as much effectively in Motown though Chauncey and Rip had some great years in the system.

Speaking about Antonio Daniels, Lou Williams got hurt, so he's getting a 10 day very shortly for the Sixers.

Hope he makes the playoff roster and gets signed on Philly. I'd take him over Kapono and even Evan Turner right now who isn't even in the rotation. I can see him sticking it in Philly for the rest of the season and be a 3rd PG in the playoffs.
