Eddy Curry is a 385 Pound Gymnast

According to Ball Don't Lie, the wikipedia page for Eddy Curry says that:

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.

Weight: 385 lb

Ok well obviously this is going to get taken down and changed, since wikipedia gets screwed with all the time, but there are some clear truths here:

1) Eddy Curry hates basketball. This fact did not change over the years, as evidenced by his effortless (literally without exerting effort) play for the Bulls and Knicks.

2) He was definitely one of the best high school players in the country as a senior. This was surely based on talent and not size or effort. I know this because I personally watched him score 8 points and foul out at the Proviso East tournament that year. Against high school kids. At 6'11", 385 (maybe he wasn't that fat yet).

3) Eddy Curry weighs 385 pounds. This fact should not get changed. Even if he does weigh less, his feet seem so heavy they might as well weigh a couple 100 each.

Eddy Curry Sucks.
