Eddy Curry: Hype Sequel

True Hoop has a post up today with the title “Huge News For the Knicks“. The story describes Eddy Curry’s new found dedication to training and fitness:

“Multiple reports say Curry’s dedication to his craft has been reinvigorated, and he is working hard to lose weight and get more athletic. Scroll back through his Twitter feed. You’ll find plenty of people asking him where he is, and why he isn’t around to hang out, and he just about always responds that he’s in Michigan working out. There is plenty of talk of speed and explosiveness, and even a mention of Donnie Walsh and a team doctor dropping in and being “impressed.”

True Hoop warns that “You never want to project too much from these kinds of reports.” No doubt. Here in Chicago we read and/or heard those same off-season reports too many times. As Chuck D said, “Don’t believe the hype, it’s a sequel.” Believe it when you see it.

My immediate thought was that his contract was going to expire, but he holds 2 player options:

Player
2008/09
2009/10
2010/11
Eddy Curry
$9,723,983
$10,500,423
$11,276,863

Curry is still just 26 years old. And you don’t have to tell me that some people grow up slower than others. He’s faced some serious trials and tribulations, so maybe he is ready — maybe stronger — to give it all to fulfill his potential. I think it wold be a great story, and I hope it’s more than just hype.
