Found December 13, 2011 on Sun Sentinel:
So how is Eddy Curry looking at Heat training camp? Hard to say, considering the team has done a remarkable job of making someone that large disappear. Tuesday, Curry again was out of sight at camp at AmericanAirlines Arena, and apparently will be out of mind for a few more days, as well. So far, the Heat have had five camp sessions; Curry has not yet completed two. The latest word is a hip flexor is sidelining the former New York Knicks center. What we know for sure is that Curry has dropped a bunch of weight since last seen in the NBA, but not quite the amount the Heat had sought. Eddy Curry made an appearance at Monday's media day, but otherwise largely has been out of view. (Mike Ehrmann, Getty) His weight is around 330. The Heat were hoping for something south of 300, but nonetheless respect the work invested to get this far. But with the start of the season less than two weeks away, it would be a stretch to consider Curry anything close to a rotation player. “Eddy did not ...

Miami Heat rookie point guard Norris Cole in good graces

In the NBA, there is chaos, then there are the Heat

At various times during Monday’s media day, Heat players were asked about Chris Paul’s impending move to the Clippers, as well as the Clippers’ failed bid to land Paul. It also was a day when Heat players were united in their desire to add Chauncey Billups, only to learn before they left AmericanAirlines Arena that Billups had unexpectedly been claimed off waivers by the guard...

NBA Weight Watchers: Kendrick Perkins, Eddy Curry, Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis & Charles Barkley

One of the things NBA fans have been on the look out for, which player was going to return from the lockout not just out of shape but seriously “chunky.” The Shawn Kemp of the 2011 lockout. Instead, it looks like exactly the opposite happened with many. A couple of the league’s notorious “fluffy” guys have returned in a more svelte package. Oklahoma City Thunder Kendrick...

Ball Don’t Lie’s 2011-12 Season Previews: Miami Heat

Usually NBA season previews are best read in October, back when football games hardly mattered, Midnight Madness was a few weeks away, and baseball was winding down. Perhaps with the last of the offseason's iced tea in hand, as you whiled away on an too-warm-for-the-season afternoon. Well, pour yourself a glass of bull shot and tighten those mittens, because it's mid-December...
