I'm definitely looking forward to it," Curry said. "If he plays, it's going to be great. It will be a great measuring stick to see where I am now."
He's right. I want to see if he can man handle Shaq. :
As for the comparisons to O'Neal, Curry said: "It gets old but it's always a compliment to be compared to someone great. You don't get mad about it. You take it in stride and try to reach that goal, that level of play, but there's not going to be another Shaq."
He's scared of Shaq. He'd never say anything remotely offensive. He's smart.
If O'Neal suits up tonight, Curry will have his hands full on defense.
That's dumn. Curry always has his hands full on defense. Lay off that cherry cake with the cream filling! :
"I think it's hard to be equipped to play Shaq," Curry said. "Honestly. I'm definitely playing a lot better now on offense but on defense, I still got to guard him. We'll see what happens."
Eddy Curry needs to stop with the "but on defense," because this is what's costing us! Zeke is out there yelling "BOX OUT!" and Curry is like "but on defense?..."
At least he is aware that defense is part of the game and he is required to play it.
That's a start..........
Hopefully it will eventually register that he is required to play it in real time and not think about it.
That's the next step.........
Maybe some day he will leave his feet. I have seen him do it......box out, pass to the cutter, things like that. You know fundamentals, right now is a hit and miss.
I think he wants to learn and is trying. What he did in Chicago for 5 years is anybodies guess.
Maybe he just needed to grow up and Isiah is a father figure to Eddy.
Whatever it is he has the tools, he just has to learn how to use them. One of the key factors that people forget about is that he is big man and men that big expend a lot of energy. That's why it's so important for a man that big to be efficient and use their energy wisely. Good technique is so important for that, wasted energy is your enemy.
how is that funny, shaq was hurt and now hes back, if you think hes scared of curry your nuts, shaq isnt going to put the peddle to the metal anymore in the reg season hes saving himself for the playoffs and is going to take off as many games as he can to be ready, i wouldnt be suprised if the heat went back to the finals at all
