Former Rutgers standout and Kings first-rounder Quincy Douby had the game of his life yesterday, putting up 75 points for the Zhejiang Golden Bulls in the Chinese Basketball Association. This is an awful lot of points for someone who averaged 4.1 points per game in the NBA, and it's an awful lot of points for…
Big man Eddy Curry has a lot of free time on his hands after playing only two games for the Dallas Mavericks this season before being released. Being a free agent has led Curry to devote more attention to Zoo High, his clothing company. Zoo High has been around for a while, but it seems that Curry has been pushing…
Two games, 25 minutes, nine points, four rebounds. These were, as one Reddit wag pointed out, Curry's best per-game averages since the ‘07-‘08 NBA season.
"Eddy Curry figures to embark to Los Angeles on Monday with his new Mavericks teammates as the team's starting center."
"Curry, 28, reportedly topped 350 pounds during his late March workout for the Heat. He lost a lot more weight - in excess of 20 pounds - between that point and late June, when he auditioned again for the Heat over several days.
But he entered the lockout still at least 40 pounds overweight, according to a league…
Curry, who made $273,000 per minute the past two seasons, hasn't paid a personal loan he took out in 2008. It was a five-month loan, at 85 percent interest. Wait until you read what he spent his money on instead.
The Knicks were crushed by Oklahoma City last night, but an opponent far more deadly than Kevin Durant was to blame. It seems the team had trouble resting up because their hotel was haunted.
"Police are searching for a "known acquaintance" of the woman in connection with the homicides. Curry, who now plays for the New York Knicks, was in Philadelphia Saturday for a game. He was back in New York later that evening, distraught and contemplating a trip to Chicago, the source said." [Chicago Tribune]
The limo driver's lawyer is confident: "What Dave did in this situation is say, 'Please stop, you're making me uncomfortable.' And Eddy kept saying, 'Yeah, yeah'. But he didn't stop, it persisted." [NYP]
At first, Eddy Curry, the hobbled Knicks' center, wouldn't comment on the ridiculous sexual harassment lawsuit brought upon him by his ex-chauffeur, but now he can't stop talking about it.
He seems kind of slimy. And Eddy Curry is disappointed and horrified by his former employee's actions.
So, Knicks center Eddy Curry may have some bigger problems facing him than finding playing time. In a lengthy lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court by his former chauffeur, David Kuchinsky, we find out that Curry may be a super-aggressive anti-Semitic closet homosexual with a penchant for gun play. Whee. Read on.
When I eventually make the NBA — What? I have great court vision! — and I'm making millions of dollars off my 1.6 assists-per-game and great locker-room presence, please remind me NOT to buy a house in or around the Chicago, Illinois area. This is getting ridiculous.
From the Creepy And Mean Yet Fascinating department comes this entry from upstart NBA blog The Association: The NBA Death Pool. Which NBA player/coach with no business playing/coaching will drop dead at just the wrong moment?
Well, the Chicago Bulls finally solved their Eddy Curry problem the way NBA executives like to solve problems: Trade him to the Knicks! Isiah Thomas will always take in your tired, your poor, your congenital heart defected. The Bulls receive wide-butt Michael Sweetney, occasional malcontent Tim Thomas, frequent…
You wouldn't know it from "Around the Horn," but sometimes in sports, an issue is too complicated and full of too much subtlety to get much of a handle on.
