Ball Don't Lie - NBA

Try and picture Eddy Curry on a pommel horse. Go ahead. From Wikipedia: "Prior to becoming considered one of the best high school basketball players in the nation as a senior at Thornwood High School in South Holland, Illinois, Curry aspired to be a gymnast and did not pick up basketball until the seventh grade when he reluctantly went out for the school team. According to his father, Eddy Curry Sr., 'For a long time, Eddy hated basketball. Being a gymnast was his backyard dream, I guess.'" Knowing the edit will be corrected and wanting to preserve this for posterity, I took a screenshot of the page, which appears after the jump.


Wikipedia also lists Eddy's weight at 385 pounds. He can't possibly be that big ... can he? (Thanks, Tim)
