Eddy Curry: I’ll Be Ready Next Season

Pedaling not quite furiously on a recumbent stationary bike like the large Lance Armstrong he’s been virtually all season, Eddy Curry pledged Monday that next season will be different.

Next season the Knicks’ big man expects to show up in shape, ready on Day One of training camp, following an altered off-season routine he plans to concoct with team president Donnie Walsh and coach Mike D’Antoni.

"We’re going to come up with a plan," he said as his teammates wrapped up practice for tonight’s game against his former team, the Bulls. "I’m going to stick to it and try to turn this thing around."
