Standing between Curry and Miami? Forty pounds


08:07 AM ET 07.18 | Eddy Curry's wait issues may be tied to his weight issues. [Curry's] predicament is clear: If he loses at least 40 more pounds during the lockout, then the Heat likely will have renewed and genuine interest because Pat Riley remains highly intrigued by the 7-foot center. The question is whether he has the discipline to achieve that mighty challenge. 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 official briefed on the situation.

Come on Miami Heat. I hate your team, organization and pretty much everything you stand for, but I'd like to call a truce just long enough to caution you against this move. This guy is a load. A lazy fat turd. You're better than this. Please don't get involved with Curry or you'll regret it.

No true from me. Please make this move. If the huge contract was not enough to motivate this guy my poverty is but yet I have no faith that he can and will do it. Besides I'd love to see them add a 7' lazy no rebounding big to their lineup

Are you the "whale" on South Beach, Bro?

Curry has had 3 years to get in shape. Why would anyone believe he can suddenly drop 40 pounds in the next 3 or 4 months? Fuggeduboutit it--send him a pizza.

And why WOULD he wanna get in shape? He got paid while being totally out of shape.
I am sure some dimwit GM will offer him a contract just for the sake of occupying some space.

and occupy considerable space he does

Meatplow, what up, dawg?

Yer right, he DOES occupy a lot of space...that's the same reason you don't want him in the pool...him in the pool means everybody else isn't.
