Eddy Curry was signed to provide the Miami Heat with some bench depth and front line help. So far he hasn't given them much and it looks like it'll remain that way.
Barry Jackson from the Miami Herald
reported that even though Curry has lost weight and is under 300 pounds the staff isn't convinced he deserves more time on the court.
Eddy Curry has dropped below 300 pounds for the first time in a while, and coaches rave about his work ethic. Udonis Haslem said his defense in practice has improved immensely. But the staff still isn’t convinced he can offer as much than Dexter Pittman (especially defensively) in limited minutes. And Spoelstra has barely used Pittman the past three games
Man. From being a lottery pick to being on par with Dexter Pittman. They'll both do more than me with a basketball than I'll do my entire life, but when you (Curry) were supposed to be a building block and a mainstay in the league and bomb that just says you got by in high school on pure talent. And now you're barely beating out Dexter Pittman for limited minutes. Remember when Curry and Tyson Chandler were supposed to be the foundation for a young Chicago Bulls team?
That seems like it was 20 years ago now.

Its buyout season in the NBA, which is like the day after Christmas. If you didnt get what you wanted at the trade deadline, theres still a chance to make up for it. And prices could be cheap.

MIAMI The list of owners of Miami Heat player championship rings includes Dwyane Wade, Udonis Haslem and now Andres Garcia.
TMZ reported that Antoine Walker, who has lost all of the 100 million-plus he made during a 12-year NBA career and gone into bankruptcy, has been forced to sell his 2006 Heat title ring to that man named Garcia for 21,500.

MIAMI Chris Bosh was talking Sunday night and nobody was answering. That's the way his teammates like it.
You see, the Miami forward speaks to himself during games. And one of the apparent problems during his recent slump was he hadn't been chattering enough.
"Somebody said I wasn't talking to myself when we played in Chicago," Bosh said, referring to Wednesday...

NBA players flop…. Some more than others and the Houston Rockets are NOTORIOUS as floppers. Shane Battier is infamous for his ability to obtain the “draw the foul charges,”but he’s all for an anti-flop regulation in the NBA. In Battier’s mind, an anti-flopping measure would need to be implemented on both ends of the floor. “As [...]
