New York Knicks trainer Kevin Thorpe called Eddy Curry back into the trainer's room before practice today so he could tape the center's cankles. "You need as much support as possible for your frame," Thorpe chided Curry. "Cankles aren't built for the pounding of the NBA. They're built to be elevated in a cheap recliner, watching stories." Curry happily agreed to have his cankles taped. "But not with athletic wrap. I want it with Pillsbury croissant dough. Then I can pick at it on the bench."
