After Training 7 Weeks, Knicks’ Curry Ready to Roll
GREENBURGH, N.Y. — In each of the last two seasons, Eddy Curry has failed to get out of the first day of Knicks’ training camp without injury.

“They have a nice hospital,” he joked during Knicks’ Media Day.
Yet as Curry enters the final year of his contract where he stands to earn $11.3 million, he says he’s healthy after spending seven weeks training on the Jersey Shore and will be ready to go when training camp starts Saturday.
“I feel great and I definitely feel I can make it through the whole season,” he said.
