Then they'd actually have a legit center!

1. Curry lost the weight before. The season before D'Antoni got here, he lost a ton of weight. Unfortunately, he got hurt in training camp. Its not just the weight anymore, he is an injury prone player. I'll be surprised if he survivies the 3 weeks of the preseason.

2. Sure he can try on defense and rebounding (anyone can try, I'd try too, but I don't defend and rebound on an NBA level, neither does he). Curry really only has 1 NBA-level skill and its scoring on the block--and lets not exaggerate, he's not some unstoppable monster at it, at his very best, when the whole offense was geared around him getting shots on the low-block, he grazed 20ppg (think he averaged 19+).

3. The biggest problem with him having one NBA-skill, even if it was a good and useful one, is that his basketball instincts were awful. Once the double-teaming would start, and he'd get confused. Start forcing things, throwing balls away. Plus as a turnstile on defense and under the rim, you are giving up a ton of points/bds for the 19ppg he gets you.

Think of him like a designated 3-pt. shooter. Can't have him on the floor too much because of what he gives up, but for some situations, he may be useful.

So assuming he is fully healthy and engaged, (which is alot to ask of an older past-his-prime, injury prone big-man) the most you can get out of him is 5-10 minutes per half to change the pace of the game, and get the opposing center in foul trouble - maybe.
