Like a great mountain shedding snow during a thaw, streams and rivers flowed down Eddy Curry’s face and body in torrents.
So vast was the pool of sweat surrounding this giant on Wednesday that team trainers had to mop up the water hazard after he finally finished talking with reporters.
Curry hasn’t played in a game since 2009. It has been a long and dormant winter, but the rebirth of his career is close at hand.
“I can definitely touch it,” Curry said. “I can see it.”
Curry was the last player to walk off the practice court Wednesday. For about 30 minutes, He worked underneath the basket with assistant coach Keith Askins, who used a pad to brace himself against Curry’s body blows.
Curry appears ready to make his long-awaited debut in a Heat uniform, which could come as early as Thursday night against the Lakers.
