NBA Speculation: Will Eddy Curry Be the Latest Addition to the Miami Heat?

It has been announced that the Timberwolves submitted Eddy Curry’s waiver request prior to the deadline Tuesday night, meaning he is eligible for the playoffs, should any team decide to pick him up. 

Curry is known throughout the NBA world as a somewhat talented player, only he puts more effort into finding a Taco Bell that is open at 4 a.m. than he does at basketball.  However, with the Heat still desperate for any available player over 6'10" they can stick under the basket—I mean, it’s not as if they’ll find somebody that’s going to grab any less rebounds than Joel Anthony—there is a good chance he will get some serious consideration. 

This could be one of the more irrelevant storylines of the year if it happens, which is really saying something, considering there was an article on ESPN.com about Lebron watching a Cowboys game. 

Eddy Curry is, seriously, averaging a negative PER.  This means that not only does he lack efficiency, but also he is, in fact, deficient. 

What would happen if Curry and Joel Anthony (one of the bottom ten PER’s) end up on the court together? Is that like crossing the streams in Ghostbusters? Do the other teams baskets start counting as more points?

Don’t do it, Miami

It reeks of desperation, like going to Prom with your cousin.

The Heat are sporting three All-Stars, including two starters in Wade and James, and if they are going to win the NBA Championship this year, it will be because of those three’s combined abilities, not a man who couldn’t find minutes on a couple 30 win Knicks teams.
