Eddy Curry was prized to become an amazing NBA player. Drafted fourth overall by the Chicago Bulls in 2001, he was supposed be the team's future. Instead, he failed. He went on to be on the Knicks, and in his second year with the team, he had a career-high 19 points and seven rebounds averaged.

But that was the only good season he will get. He also got much bigger, and that is not in a good way. Not in a good way at all. He was getting fat. He was last seen at 295 pounds.

When trying out for the Heat, Curry literally just topped the weight over. He must've been eating A LOT!

Reports the Miami Herald:
Eddy Curry’s predicament is clear: If he loses at least 40 more pounds during the lockout, then the Heat likely will have renewed and genuine interest because Pat Riley remains highly intrigued by the 7-foot center. The question is whether he has the discipline to achieve that mighty challenge.

Curry, 28, reportedly topped 350 pounds during his late March workout for the Heat. He lost a lot more weight — in excess of 20 pounds — between that point and late June, when he auditioned again for the Heat over several days.
However, Curry is still on the team's radar despite all this. Why?

“You watch him shoot and he’s got great touch, good hands,” said a player source who was invited to Curry’s multiplayer Heat workouts in late June. “He’s very skilled. But it’s a question of whether he gets more serious. He’s got a long way to go.”

Wow. Just plain and simple.

Wow, Eddy Curry.
