- According to the NY Post, oversized Knicks big man Eddy Curry has turned up to training camp out of shape. Eddy was never the most nimble of players and this won't bode well for new Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni. This combined with the fact that Stephon Marbury is still a Knick could make for another long, awful season for one of basketball's most famous teams.
- The news that Houston Rockets swingman, Tracy McGrady hasn't recovered fully from off season injury shows that yet again, for all his talents, McGrady is a risky guy who can't be relied upon to take his team to the next level. The report also states that McGrady is already booked in for shoulder surgery NEXT summer.....note to fantasy ballers out there....DO NOT touch T-Mac this year.
- And here's a story to give hope to anyone who dreams of playing in the NBA....the Minnesota Timberwolves are reportedly about to add Brazilian dud Rafael Araujo to their training camp roster. T'wolves GM Rob Babcock famously drafted Araujo for the Toronto Raptors in 2004, ahead of players such as Andre Iguodala and Josh Smith. Babcock obviously can see something in Araujo that absolutely nobody else in the world can !
- And finally, Philadelphia 76ers gargantuan, Samuel Dalembert has stated that he wants to be an All-star this year. Don't we all ??? Dalembert figures that as Ben Wallace made it by primarily being a defender, then big Sammy can make it that way too.
