NBA Stuff

Here's the scenario. Eddy Curry misses the end of his contract year with a heart problem. His team, the Bulls, are afraid that A) he might miss more time in the future and aren't eager to give him millions of guaranteed dollars (he's not even a sure bet when he's healthy) and B) he might, you know, die from said heart problem. So the team asks Curry to take a DNA test to see if he is susceptible to a potentially fatal heart problem.

Curry balks, citing his privacy. First off, Curry is a dumbass, he could die out there, ever hear of Reggie Lewis? He might want to find this out himself, you know, for those pesky health reasons. But if he fails he won't get his millions of dollars he wants. So he doesn't take the DNA test. So he is still a restricted free agent and any team that is interested in him will have no idea if he has a chance of dying out on the court within the next few years. Oh, by the way, if he failed the test, the Bulls would've paid him $400,000 a year for the next 50 years. That's $20 million.

But Curry still wants to play and thinks he can find a team that wants him, no (DNA) questions asked. (For the record, this guy was a flaky sign before the heart stuff, he's underperformed his entire career. He's been overweight and he didn't show signs to warrent his #2 overall draft selection this last season, his contract year). What team could possibly be so dumb to take this guy?

You guessed it, Isiah Thomas and the New York Knicks. Of course, they are a gonna trade for a guy who has severe healthy issues. I mean, why not? Whats the worst that could happen?

Zeke, these aren't bad knees we're talking about here. This is a fuckin HEART PROBLEM! Wow.
