ESPN asked 91 “experts” from its various corporate tentacles to rate every player in the league in terms of “the current quality of each player.” They then ranked every player in the league from 1 to 500, and the bottom hundred players were released today. Coming in eighth from the bottom at No. 493? Our old pal Eddy Curry. Curry, of course, didn’t actually play in any NBA games last season. (He went to Minnesota as part of the three-team Carmelo Anthony trade in February, and was subsequently bought out of his contract.) But we suppose now that Curry’s reportedly lost a bunch of weight, it’s possible he could find himself on a roster next season. Coming in at No. 500? Lavoy Allen, a forward out of Temple who went to the Sixers with the twentieth pick in the second round of this year’s draft. Oh, and coming in at No. 491, two spots ahead of Curry? Jorts, a.k.a., the Knicks’ Josh Harrellson. Apparently, being a friggin’ hero did not factor into the rankings at all. [ESPN]
