Eddy Curry can do a backflip 

Post#1 » by Luv those Knicks » Sat Aug 23, 2008 6:16 pm

OK, maybe not anymore, or maybe he could, but could when he was a young NBA player.

I remember another poster saying that Eddy could do a full standing backflip. he might be the biggers person in the world to have ever done one.


anyway - here's the article. it's interesting to me how Athleticaly Gifted Curry is. Doesn't always translate into NBA skills, but he's a freak of nature.

He's an insane athlete, the problem is that he's not really dedicated to basketball and that's the reason I think we should move him before ZBo. Because Zach loves basketball and plays throughout the year. Zach doesn't pass and his D sucks, but he wants to be good and wants to succeed, meaning I could definately see him starting to pass more either with a great coach or an a playoff caliber vet team.

No wonder Eddy Curry's always lazy,
he didn't even want to play basketball.

I heard during the summer he stands outside McD's with a sign that says 'Will backflip for BigMac'.

Not all athletes have washboard abs.

As far as a vid, all I had prior to this article was a bulls poster who said Eddy could do a standing backflip, this article confirmed that, so I figured it was worth a thread.


though, it has since occured to me, I read about a guy who was trying out for the NFL as a lineman, he was like 330 lbs maybe more, and he was a borderline draftee trying to make it on his size and athleticism, cause his college record didn't merit a pick. He could do a standing backflip. Said so in a NYTimes article. Sorry, I can't dig up the article, I don't remember his name and it was a couple years ago.

So, there are probably a handful of 300 pounders who can do that kind of athletic stuff, eddy's one of em.

Make fun of Eddy's game or his lack of passion all you want, you can even call him fat (though he's really not THAT fat, he just has a big frame). But fact is, he's an athletic freak. No question.

You just came back from Sea World, that wasn't Eddie Curry doing a backflip it was a killer whale.

It is such a shame with Eddy.
He has all the physical tools in the world.
Size, athleticism, quick feet, shooting touch...

He just doesn't care very much about winning basketball games.

Maybe Dantoni can work some Magic with him. I think curry's custom made for the 7 second or less offense. Curry was a pretty good player 2 years ago.


and rrosario,

I missed the other thread. Wouldn't have posted this one if I'd seen it.
