Eddy Curry: It's Over and It's Done With

Eddy Curry is done. Never has an injury been more of a relief for player, coach and crowd than this one. Word came down yesterday that he will go under the surgeon's knife to repair torn cartilage in his right knee. If Isiah is back as coach next season, meaning I will have to come to grips with the fact my prayers have been unanswered and the reality that aetheism is an available life-choice, then it seems likely that Curry will not be. We may never see that big posterior in a New York Knicks uniform again. Which, as bad as he's been this season, I think is a shame.

His average dipped below 14 points for the season as he got buried further down the bench. It is a pity that his amazing 2006 had to be followed by a year as bad as this one. It's my opinion that Isiah has ruined this kid. I'm not sure if he did it just by brining in Zach Randolph or whether it was telling the press that old-fashioned Big Men are like dinosaurs. Either way, Isiah ruined this kid this season just when he looked poised to break out. It's a shame. For the Knicks and for Eddy.
