MIAMI -- For Eddy Curry, is the glass half full or half empty?
Well, maybe it's not a see-through glass.
On one hand, the Miami center is disappointed all his hard work this season to lose weight has not translated into playing time. On the other hand, he's well aware what the Heat have done to resurrect his career when it looked as if it might be over.
"As far as playing wise, it hurts me that I'm not playing," Curry said in an interview with FOX Sports Florida. "Honesty, I feel like I did a lot to put myself in a position to be successful here but it just hasn't turned into minutes for me. But I think, on another note, my body is great. I'm continuing to lose weight, continuing to get myself in great shape. And that's all I can really ask for. It's a world-class organization here, and just to be a part of it, I feel extremely blessed and I'm still making the best of it."
At one point last year, the 7-foot Curry weighed nearly...
BEST OF MAXIM
A MAN OF THE PEOPLE
Following a big win on Sunday for the Miami Heat against the Knicks, Dwyane Wade made it about New York and even found time to play some pick up ball against some lucky kids.
According to the NY Post:
Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade’s post-victory celebration Sunday included a chat with Anna Wintour, shopping for socks and a pickup game in Tompkins Square Park. After the Heat...
FLOATING AIR BISCUITS
Haha. When caught downwind, there is nothing more disgusting than the odor of someone else’s gas. When you are nowhere near the affected area — fart zero, as it were — but can still witness the stinky aftermath, there is nothing more amusing. When a professional basketball team’s bench is captured in a screengrab attempting [...]
Dwyane Wade is a man of the people. Not only did Wade attend the Yankees-Angels game last Sunday following his team’s win over the Knicks, but he also found some time to play a little pickup basketball with some kids at the park.
The New York Post reported on Tuesday that Wade was out buying clothing with his stylist in SoHo after the game when he spotted some kids playing at...
MIAMI-- If there's a more heated rivalry in the NBA now than Heat-Bulls, name it.
Thursday night's slugfest between the teams produced two flagrant fouls, one resulting in an ejection, and four individual technicals. It had Miami's Dwyane Wade and Chicago's Richard Hamilton going at it the way the two did when Hamilton played for Detorit in the hotly contested 2005...
MIAMI-- Erik Spoesltra obviously has nothing against Miami fans. Not even the guy who shows up every game dressed as a banana.
The Heat coach loves the homecourt advantage his team has at AmericanAirlines Arena, where it is 26-4 this season. But Spoelstra would rather not be in Miami on Thursday night.
"We would probably prefer this one was on the road again and have that...
In the Miami Heat's last eight games, Dwyane Wade has sat out the four against opponents with losing records while playing four times against playoff teams.
If that pattern holds, Wade won't be on the court when the Heat look for a sixth straight win in a home matchup with the Washington Wizards on Saturday night.
Wade has missed 14 games this season with a variety of injuries...
LeBron James led the way with 27 points and 11 rebounds as the host Miami Heat pulled to within a game and a half of Chicago for the top spot in the Eastern Conference with an 83-72 victory over the Bulls.
Dwyane Wade returned to the lineup and put up 18 points and five assists while Mario Chalmers scored 16 points for the Heat, who were without Chris Bosh.
Derrick Rose did not...
Shaquille O'Neal hasn't quite had the impact on Inside the NBA that many fans of the show and the league would have expected. Sure, he's had his funny moments and his notable on-air slip ups that have resulted in laughter, but we haven't had a seminal moment yet in Shaq's newborn media career.
We may have just found that clip thanks to somebody farting on...
The NBA MVP debate has heated up, then cooled down. Then it heated up again, and then it cooled down, again. It seems that the MVP has come down to two players: Miami Heat forward LeBron James and Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant.
Durant also has an argument for the award. He is averaging 27.8 ppg and 8 rpg. While he doesn’t boast the same assists per game like LeBron...
Tensions between the top two teams out in the East are escalating at the perfect time with the Miami Heat striking the latest blow with an 83-72 decision over the Chicago Bulls and pulling within a game and a half for the top seed with just five games left in the schedule. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade played one of their more "emotional" games of the season (while Chris...
