Looks like Eddy Curry has made the Heat roster

Eddy Curry is going to pull an NBA paycheck this season.

I know. I thought the only thing Curry would pull this year is another beer out of the refrigerator, but he has slimmed down and is getting a legit chance in Miami, tweets Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel.

Erik Spoelstra essentially says Eddy Curry has made roster. “The idea when we brought Eddy to camp was to think big picture.”

He apparently did not mean “big picture” ironically.

This season bench depth is going to matter more than ever thanks to the condensed schedule, which means Curry at some point is going to get his shot at redemption. We’ll see if he ends up a cartoon, in a cartoon graveyard.

    So glad the Bulls dumped this guy when they did.

    My favorite comment about this guy is when Scott Skiles was asked after a game what Curry could do to be a better rebounder. Skiles replied “He could start by jumping!”

    Knowing what you know about the Heat organization (other than their penchant to put on over-the-top press conferences after signing high-impact free gents), does anyone think they would waste their time with a guy who isn’t there to play 100% balls-out?

      Well they just signed Eddy Curry, so yes, yes I do think they are capable of wasting their time.
