The Return Of Eddy Curry Is Great For Basketball Fans

+Read full article

Kevin Jairaj-US PRESSWIRE

Eddy Curry and his NBA career have been quite the sight to see. He was supposed to be the next great big man before health problems derailed that. He eventually ate himself out of the league before winning a title with the Miami Heat last year. On Tuesday, Curry played decent minutes for the Dallas Mavericks and impressed a lot of people.

At first glance, seven points and four rebounds in 17 minutes does not seem like a lot but you have to remember where Curry has been.  No one thought he would still be in the league by this point.  It seemed he had too many health issues to ever play at a high level again.  He did have some issues getting up and down the court, but other than that, he was fun to watch.

I grew up watching Curry when he was fresh into the league.  He was going to be a guy that was going to put up a lot of points for your team.  However, his potential always seemed greater than the results.  He was extremely frustrating to watch and it did not take long for people to get sick of him.

As a basketball fan, I enjoyed watching Curry play.  If not for Brandan Wright, Curry would have been the starting center on Tuesday.  Although that was not the case, it was still wonderful to see him play meaningful minutes.

Once the Mavs get some players back from injury, Curry’s minutes will probably dwindle.  However, it is going to be a fun ride for him and fans while it lasts.

Dirk Nails Game-Winner, Gets Love From Kobe

Kobe Bryant wasn't able to lace up for the Los Angeles Lakers against the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night, but he still managed to make the highlight reels on multiple occasions. After Dirk Nowitzki nailed what turned out to be the game-winning jumper, he stumbled backward into Bryant and received a pat of approval. This encounter is the definition of the saying 'game recognizes game' as the two players are both legends and future Hall of Famers.

Josh Smith Fakes Dirk Nowitzki Out of His Shoes

Josh Smith has returned to the Houston Rockets via trade, and he made the most of his first game back. He scored 16 points off the bench, including this drive on Dirk Nowitzki that made Smith look like Hakeem Olajuwon. Could Ty Lawson and Josh Smith be the spark duo off the bench that rejuvenates this Rockets team?

Watch Kings' Rondo Attempt To Trip Mavs' Williams

Last night's game between the Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks was one of the most entertaining of the season. It was a back-and-forth contest that ended on a Deron Williams three-pointer as time expired in double-overtime. Unfortunately, Williams almost didn't get to take that shot as Rajon Rondo attempted to trip him from the bench earlier in the game which could have caused serious injury. Rondo should be suspended for his actions.
