  1. Friday And-1 links: JaVale McGee’s mom loves her son

    Jan 20, 2012, 11:10 AM EST

    JaVale McGee

    Welcome to our look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). JaVale McGee’s mom loves her son, even if her defense of him shows a few blind spots. As a parent, I can relate… except my kids…

  2. Heat’s depth exposes Lakers’ serious lack of it

    Jan 20, 2012, 12:46 AM EST

    Chris Bosh LeBron James

    One year ago, the table was flipped. What held the Miami Heat back was a lack of depth — it was the big three and then little else they could count on. It haunted them in the finals against Dallas. The Lakers on the other hand had the sixth man of the year and while…

  3. Eddy Curry has lost nearly 100 pounds, may make Heat debut tonight

    Jan 19, 2012, 5:46 PM EST

    Miami Heat's Eddy Curry poses during media day at the team's training camp in Miami

    The Miami Heat won’t have Dwayne Wade tonight against the Lakers, and LeBron James will apparently be a game-time decision, but they may get some help Eddy Curry, who might play in his first game since 2009 tonight: From Yahoo! Sports’ Marc Spears: The New York Knicks’ loss to the Chicago Bulls on Dec. 17, 2009, wasn’t a…

  4. This isn’t Kobe vs. LeBron, it’s Heat break vs. Lakers big men

    Jan 19, 2012, 11:01 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Miami Heat

    Thursday night’s showdown in South Beach is not Kobe Bryant vs. LeBron James. Not totally. Yes, they are the league’s top two scorers, but LeBron is a game time decision after being sent home sick from shoot around. He’s been fighting a cold for a few days. Either way, you can be sure Kobe is…

  5. Eddy Curry could debut for the Heat Thursday. We’re serious.

    Jan 18, 2012, 7:41 PM EST

    Eddy Curry

    Yes, Thursday night Hitler and Jack the Ripper may get in a snowball fight in Hell, also. Long dismissed — but well paid — center Eddy Curry could make his debut for the Miami Heat, reports our own Ira Winderman at the Sun Sentinel. Instead of again summarily ruling the bulky veteran center out of…

  6. 5 Things to Watch, Heat-Mavericks: Christmas revenge

    Dec 25, 2011, 10:30 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    GAMES. There will be actual NBA games played today starting at noon. To get you pumped, ready, and primed for the start of the 2011-2012 NBA season, we give you five things to keep an eye on today in Heat-Mavericks. To get you pumped: The devil you know is worse than the devil you don’t…

  7. NBA Season Preview: Miami Heat

    Dec 15, 2011, 12:00 AM EST

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    Last season: 58-24, second seed in the East. We all know how this turned out — Miami made it to the NBA Finals in its first season with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh, but lost the title to Dallas in six games. Head Coach: Erik Spoelstra, who interestingly enough has not yet been…

  8. Famed trainer say Eddy Curry is in NBA shape. Riiiiight.

    Oct 17, 2011, 3:02 PM EST

    ecurry_beard

    It would balance out the karmic scales if, when the lockout ends, Eddy Curry were in shape and ready to play in the NBA while other guys had put on the weight he had shed. That would amuse me, but I won’t believe it until I see it. I think the entire island of Manhattan…

  9. Eddy Curry pulls out of Miami charity game, Caron Butler to play

    Oct 8, 2011, 7:44 PM EST

    New York Knicks Media Day 2010

    Eddy Curry had lost all that weight, reportedly 100 lbs. making him the Biggest Loser in the good way for the first time in his career. His coming out party was supposed to be the charity event in Miami alongside Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and Mario Chalmers, members (or former in restricted free-agent Mario Chalmers’…

  10. Guess who’s coming to Melo league? Hint: It rhymes with “Neddy Whurry.”

    Aug 28, 2011, 7:28 PM EST

    New York Knicks Media Day 2010

    I know you were probably excited for the Team Melo vs. non-officially-but-pretty-much Goodman League in the exhibition next month. It’s LeBron, and Melo, and Chris Paul, sharing a court against Kevin Durant and Brandon Jennings and the like. But now, now we have a real reason for you to get excited. Ladies and gentlemen, from Hoopsworld:…

  11. The Biggest Loser is Eddy Curry, apparently

    Aug 14, 2011, 11:34 AM EST

    New York Knicks Media Day 2010

    Here’s your quarterly update on Eddy Curry’s continuing efforts to lose an entire person in weight. As the former Knicks center continues to try and get back into shape to make a roster next season, with the Heat at the top of his list, he’s trying to lose as much of that heftiness as possible.…

  12. Those terrible NBA contracts are not why there is a lockout

    Jul 26, 2011, 7:40 PM EST

    ecurry_beard

    Eddy Curry made $11.2 million last season to do nothing. Gilbert Arenas made $17 million and as three more years on his deal left. Joe Johnson just got more money than LeBron James. And the list goes on and on — did Luke Walton earn $6 million last season? It is easy to talk about…

  13. Heat want a small forward, possibly Battier, and Eddy Curry if he loses 40 lbs.. Literally.

    Jul 17, 2011, 3:30 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    The Miami Heat are still thinking about how to improve their team to get it over the top (one would have thought bringing in the best free agent class in history would have done it, but one would be wrong), even in a lockout. They have a number of options in mind for upgrades at…

  14. Eddy Curry worked out for the Heat. That’s the punchline.

    Jun 26, 2011, 5:00 PM EST

    New York Knicks Media Day 2010

    A source familiar with the situation confirmed Sunday to the Sun Sentinel that veteran center Eddy Curry has been working with the Miami Heat in recent days, as the Heat look at free-agent options. via Miami Heat: Pat Riley taking a look at veteran NBA free-agent center Eddy Curry – South Florida Sun-Sentinel.com. I’m tempted to…

  15. Report: NBA proposes franchise tag, non-guaranteed contracts

    May 11, 2011, 12:52 PM EST

    ecurry_beard

    The proposal the NBA owners presented the NBA players union late last month would do away with fully-guaranteed contracts and adds a style of franchise tag, one that is different than the NFL’s but new to the NBA, reports Zach Lowe at Sports Illustrated. Both would be a radical shift from the current collective bargaining…

  16. Eddy Curry got workout with Heat, who took a pass

    Apr 11, 2011, 3:15 PM EST

    New York Knicks Media Day 2010

    Eddy Curry — bought out by the Knick and having been working out in Chicago to get in NBA shape — got his chance. The Miami Heat brought him in for a series of workouts. The Heat need a viable big man, Eddy Curry once was a viable big man. (Don’t laugh, the Heat and…

  17. If we can stop laughing, we’ll tell you about the Heat being interested in Eddy Curry

    Apr 2, 2011, 4:30 PM EST

    New York Knicks Media Day 2010

    We’re going to get through this with a straight face. Or at least as far as we can. You ready? Yahoo! Sports reports Saturday that the Miami Heat are strongly considering signing free agent center Eddy Curry to help with the playoff run. … Hold it in. Curry played, well, was on roster for the…

  18. Winderman: Still time to add good player (or Eddy Curry) to playoff roster

    Mar 21, 2011, 6:59 PM EST

    ecurry_beard

    Yes, there still is time. With all of its deadlines, be it the mid-February trading deadline or the March 1 buyout deadline, the NBA is surprisingly lax when it comes to its playoff-roster deadline. Spend at least one game on the roster prior to the postseason and you’re playoff eligible, provided you were not on…

  19. Timberwolves buy out Eddy Curry. Anybody interested? Anybody? Bueller?

    Mar 2, 2011, 12:51 AM EST

    ecurry_beard

    It seemed unlikely that Eddy Curry was ever going to suit up for the Minnesota Timberwolves. It’s not like they were ever going to take minutes away from Kevin Love to give to Curry. Heck, I wouldn’t take minutes away from Darko to give to Curry. So the two sides agreed to a buyout, the…

  20. Five trades we’d like to see (and we’re not talking ‘Melodrama)

    Feb 16, 2011, 2:57 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    It’s been quiet. Too quiet. Serious trade chatter is down around the league. People are talking but there is less meaningful dialogue going on than in an Adam Sandler movie. Maybe it’s fear of the new CBA. Maybe it’s Carmelo Anthony creating a bottleneck. Maybe people are too busy playing Angry Birds. Well, we are…

  21. Three-team talks about Carmelo Anthony trade continue, Nuggets still dragging feet

    Feb 8, 2011, 11:06 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    UPDATE 11:06 am: In an effort to push the deal forward, Knicks owner James Dolan called Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke directly to negotiate a deal, according to the New York Daily News. According to a source familiar with the negotiations, Dolan’s decision to become more involved in the Anthony trade talks is a sign that…

  22. Stop us if you’ve heard this one: New York closing in on Melo

    Feb 6, 2011, 12:52 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Recently we spread the word on a Yahoo! report saying Melo’s people had informed teams that the Knicks were the only team he would sign an extension with. From there, there has been more movement towards an actual trade with New York, signaling a possible shift in Denver’s so-far ice-cold approach to dealing with the…

  23. Report: Knicks still lobbing Carmelo offers, Nuggets still rejecting

    Jan 22, 2011, 5:30 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    With the Nets out of the way, New York has resumed its calm, cool, and collected pursuit of Carmelo Anthony, but are hitting the same roadblock they have since the beginning: Denver doesn’t want hardly anything the Knicks have to offer. From The New York Post: A deal with the Nuggets appears to be, according…

  24. Eddy Curry healthy enough to play, D’Antoni smart enough not to

    Dec 5, 2010, 8:00 PM EST

    ecurry_beard

    The New York Knicks could use some more scoring and defensive presence in the paint — Ronny Turiaf has been in and out of the lineup with injuries, and Timofey Mozgov is still learning how to do more than just pick up fouls in the NBA. Well, there is Eddy Curry…. He is healthy enough…

  25. Eddy Curry being sued for non-payment… again. But hey, he is working out.

    Oct 15, 2010, 11:40 AM EST

    ecurry_beard

    Just a rule of thumb — anytime an NBA player not named Lamar or Carmelo shows up on TMZ, it’s a bad thing. (Those two get a pass due to their wives.) Eddy Curry, come on down… Curry is being sued — once again — for non-payment, according to TMZ. Curry is being sued by…
