Hmm I've never particularly liked him for the Heat, I feel like they should get someone who rebounds better.

At the minimum would be no risk. But they should put him through an extensive workout lol.

When motivated and playing well he doesn't rebound or defend particularly well. The knicks paid him like a star, called him a star, worked around him, then asked, begged, pleaded, argued, and everytime he came in, it didn't work. The last two times the Knicks put him on the court, he got hurt WARMING UP for practice.

He'll make a great Heat. Sign him please.

Funniest news I've heard all day. Don't expect Eddy Curry to contribute if he does sign with the Heat.

He was lighter last year with Knicks but it's not light. He went from super fat ass to fat ass.

Pat Riley once took a flier on Ike Austin, when nobody wanted him. Ended up turning around his career. Perhaps the same came be done with Curry.

The Heat really need to go after a defensive big, not Eddy Curry. I don't understand why the Heat will sign Eddy Curry. It doesn't make sense, considering that given his history, he IS well known for not being a defensive center. Maybe the Heat know something that we don't.

Eddy Curry is a fatter, slower, heavier, worse-rebounding, less-athletic, more immature version of Zach Randolph.

After all the talk of getting someone serviceable like Dalembert or even Kwame, they have to settle for Curry? That's gotta be disappointing if true.
