THROUGH THE WIRE: NEWS (09/28/10)
It looks like the Knicks are going to have to order something fresh into the Big Apple as their all out of Curry right now. Their injury prone centre Eddy Curry will be out for around 4-6 weeks. The big man will try and round himself into shape near the start of the 2010/2011 regular season but as of right now he is suffering from a strained right hamstring. The powerful but problematic core of the Knicks centre's could really be a positive addition to this new talented Knicks squad despite the negative subtractions he has suffered. Curry has been out of favour health wise for the last three seasons as the Knicks have opened camp but coach Mike D'Antoni (loyal as ever) still has faith in his potential. Curry is in the last year of his contract and will want to heat up before he leaves teams with a bad aftertaste.
It appears that someone else has entered training camp like they've just left another camp. LA Clippers superstar guard Baron Davis has been told by his team that he is out of shape. New Clips coach Vinny Del Negro expressed his concerns at BD's conditioning and need to trim down. It has been rumored that Baron's weight was even at 260 pounds. I guess Davis may have to leave off the super sizes before he becomes Shaq sized. Still however Del Negro informed the press that Davis has been working real hard over the last month and is nowhere near 260 but still isn't where he needs to be weight wise. As soon as B. Diddy gets into better shape the Clippers will be in better condition to do some damage this season.
Another Davis and another guy who could use some time in the weight room has entered training camp with some issues. It seems that Boston's Big Baby, Glen Davis is throwing hit toys out the pram in regards to his role. Davis is a versatile guy who's worn many hats for the Celtics, Now he's far from crying again but still Glen would be much happier with a more solid role. Davis can shoot but he also honed his inside game a lot last season when (now retired) Rasheed Wallace spreaded the floor out. Now with the Boston Irish picking up two O'Neals (in Shaq and Jermaine) Davis is unsure where he'll fit. Wondering whether he'll still play centre or more 4 Glen Davis is looking for some clarity with coach Glenn 'Doc' Rivers. Davis has matured over the last few years with one of the Leagues oldest franchises and he's far from drooling like a baby if he doesn't get exactly what he wants. As long as he knows his role he's said he'll go out and be all Nike about it and just do it.
