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.

  1. Please don’t recommend that Eddy Curry endanger his back health by trying to hurl bowling balls violently down the lane. We’ve already got one big man with a suspect back. At any rate, I would imagine that his extremely high center of gravity forces him to take a more methodical approach in order to maintain balance. Besides, isn’t soft touch a good thing to have in basketball? Maybe we should wager on Shaq’s bowling style. I suspect it’s similar to Curry’s. Not sure how we’d find out, though…and a quick google search yielded no results.

  2. You may have a point. But Curry was also not wearing bowling shoes. Which could prevent a person from properly releasing a bowling ball.

    I reckon it’s hard to find a bowling alley that has boats to hold his dawgs.
