Is Eddy Curry in Mike D’Antoni’s Bad Books?

Eddy Curry’s days as the Knicks’ starting center are over, and judging by the harsh language Mike D’Antoni used Tuesday night, Curry won’t be seeing the floor anytime soon.

D’Antoni expressed disappointment in Curry’s play and his conditioning just one week before the Knicks open the season against the Miami Heat. Curry, who was once described as a cornerstone piece of the franchise, is now just an expensive 7-foot ornament. "He’s going to have to play better than what he has shown me," D’Antoni said after Curry did not play in Boston’s 101-90 victory at the Garden. "He is going to have to pick it up. He has got to pick up his training."
