Eddy Curry — 2012 Miami Heat
Juwan Howard wasn’t the only big man to get a cheapo championship ring with LeBron’s Heatles. Eddy Curry got one too, even though he played only 14 regular season games with Miami. None of those games were in the playoffs. In fact, Eddy Curry never actually played in a playoff game.
That’s not exactly what was expected from Baby Shaq when he was drafted to be part of a twin towers with Tyson Chandler in Chicago. But Eddy Curry never lived up to billing for the Bulls, and he ate his way into and out of a fat — and I do mean fat — contract with the New York Knicks. Eddy Curry sported a 75 offensive rating over his final four seasons in the NBA. He was not exactly a precursor to the Curry that was to come.
