EDDY CURRY: 9TH MAN?

1

Looks as if Eddy Curry is no longer a starter for the Knicks. From the NY Daily News:

“Mike D’Antoni’s starting five appear to be set: Chris Duhon, Jamal Crawford, Quentin Richardson, David Lee and Zach Randolph.

D’Antoni essentially said as much at Monday’s practice when he was asked about making changes to the lineup and he responded by saying, “when I get stuck, I get stuck.”

Curry and Stephon Marbury are the odd men out and it will be interesting to see if they can crack D’Antoni’s eight or nine man rotation. Nate Robinson should be the first guard off the bench and D’Antoni could decide to play small which is good news for second year forward Wilson Chandler. Curry will get minutes ahead of Malik Rose but only until Jared Jeffries returns. Assuming Marbury is still on the team when the regular season begins, he will the fourth guard.”

This can’t be considered too shocking since Curry is a half-court player. What’s shocking is how a 6’11″ center averages only 5.4 boards and 0.7 blocks per game for his career.

    Okay, we get it Zoner. Eddie Curry may never be a very good NBA player again after showing signs of being a solid scorer in his first few years in New York. But please don’t forget the other half of the famous former H.S. combo picked by the Bulls in the ’01 draft, Tyson Chandler. He’s doing quite well for himself in NO/OK City, playing a key role on one of the best teams in the NBA. Krause may have been a bit wrong about Curry, but he was dead on about Chandler. He’s one of the best rebounding and defensive big men in the game now.

    Just sayin’.
