"Eddy Curry dodged this week's voluntary Knicks big-man minicamp in Las Vegas that assistant Mark Aguirre organized to coincide with summer-league play, and New York may be the ones who suffer as a result.
The Knicks were hoping that Curry and new acquisition Zach Randolph could spend some time together to start to mesh, since both dominate the ball and occupy the low post. One member of the Curry camp, however, mentioned it's up to Thomas to make this work, not Curry.
Curry had an anniversary vacation planned with his wife this week he wouldn't postpone. Apparently, according to Marc Berman of the New York Post, the Knicks' franchise player felt his vacation that started nearly three months ago, when the season ended April 18, wasn't long enough".I toat'ly predicted this, using the fact that Peterson signed an offer sheet with them and Toronto matched as my rationale. I don't know if that has anything to do with the real reason for signing there, but I like the signing a lot.
Its old news. It was originally reported as friend's anniversary party -- that pissed me off.
Its now his anniversary vacation. I don't know the scheduling - whether Aguirre planned this before Curry had his trip sceduled. If this was already booked, then I cannto blame him for missing a last minute practice.
...but yeah, it would be nice if the team got togehter and practiced in the offseason. Practice helps.
