Where are all the Curry defenders now? This kid does not want to play. Even when Isiah made him the centerpiece, he did not play with fire. 6-11 280lbs and he can't avg more than 7 rebounds or 1 block shot a game! The sooner the Knicks get rid of him the better. I wanted Marbury gone, but at least he showed up in shape ready to go. Jamal will play relatively hard, but he is not a winning ballplayer (no defense, bad shot selection). In Curry's case he is just lazy!!

If only Eddy Curry came into training camp 'in shape' and 'ready to work' in the first place,...all this drama with D'Antoni would be moot. As for Al Harrington, I'd be excited to have him on board although I don't know how much better they would be without Jamal. He's a streaky shooter anyway, but at least we still have Nate.

What a sad story Curry has become! Why could he not figure out that he wasn't in shape and did not deserve to be in the rotation? Last year the excuse was he felt threatened by Zach, now D'Antoni hurt his feelings. I used to like this guy, but he's not even a man! A high school player knows that if you aren't getting respect, you work harder.
I'm disappointed and astonished at this pathetic attitude. Who would want this guy? He needs counseling, and I mean that seriously.

I agree. He may not have recovered from the robbery at his home a while back.

i don't see how you don't come into training camp in shape, then you don't bust your tail to get back on the court, especially when your team is in dire need of a big man...and now with crawford gone, and randolph on the way out, we need him...nate can't do it all by himself, even though he is the man...check out my favorite video of him dancing with the fans...the bright spot on a dark day lol...http://link.brightcove.c om/services/player/bcpid185973 5478?bclid=1859720801&bcti d=2454972001

with the trades the knicks have made and marbury's contract up, all the knicks need to do is unload this fat tub and they're in the clear.

I remember in High School, Eddy Curry was known as "Baby Shaq. Unfortunately, he's basically turn into "Baby Huey"...
