I went bowling last night. Chicago Bull center Eddy Curry was bowling in the lane next to us. He’s tall. I mean I’m sort of tall, but he’s tall. And who knew that they made white t-shirts that big. I mean it was big. And for being such a tall and big man, he’s quite gentle with a bowling ball. He had a soft touch. This is nice to see and all, but still slightly disturbing. I guess it is nice to know that such a big man can have a delicate side. But then again, this guy is paid to go up against the likes of Shaquille O’Neal. You can’t be a gentle giant and expect to be successful.
I like Eddy Curry. And I know he’s got a bad heart which hopefully won’t cause him problems down the road, but watching him bowl was actually sort of telling. I mean when Shaq bowls, he probably lets that thing rip down the lane. That’s what I want to see Eddy do. Fire that ball toward those pins just like you need to fire your body toward Shaq when he comes down the lane. In the end, I think it safe to say that he plays basketball like he bowls: like a pussy.
That’s all there is to it. I should be a basketball coach. I’d just take my guys bowling.
