I heard a term used on a medical show the other night where a patient has a burst of energy and life before they succumb to their body's ailment. It's called surging. I just hope that Curry isn't providing us a demonstration of surging before succumbing.
Also, here's a little news item tidbit I found on SpursNation: So when news of Eddy Curry’s encouraging performance in Wednesday’s Spurs-Hawks game began showing up in tweets by eyewitnesses of the Spurs’ 101-99 victory at the AT&T Center, perspective came from somewhere in New York by a poster named “Netw3rk,” whose acerbic observations are enjoyed by many league observers.
“I love pre-season optimism about Eddy Curry,” Netw3rk posted. “It’s like the beginning of a horror movie when everyone is saying, ‘What a great cabin.’”
