As for his future, it's my belief that he would have done better here than in NY. Curry seemed to be turning the corner during his last few years in Chicago, and I think Skiles would have continued to get more out of him than most coaches. He would always be a liability on the boards and defensively, but clearly we found a system that worked. That team just had insane chemistry and played for one another. Unlike the rest of the Gordon/Hinrich/Deng teams, that one was actually pretty talented and deep and didn't always have to play "above their level" to win.
That 05 team was deep. Curry, Davis, Deng, Hinrich, And Duhon starting. Chandler, Othello, Noc, Gordon, Pargo. Only person that played over 30mpg was Kirk.
