How to deal with Eddy?
Big Eddy is due about 11 M this yeat thanks to Isiah. If the past is any indication, he should weight in at 350 during camp. How should the Knicks deal with this disruptive bum? Should the staff ignore him or run him until he collapses from exhaustion? How does his presence affect team morale? Do they have to bring him on road trips? It's pretty clear that he just wants to relax, enjoy the vacation and collect his money
What are the lessons from the Eddy affair? Be very careful with long term contracts, especially ones with player options.
Second, Character is critical. You had better do an in-depth study of character and personal habits before awarding long term contracts.
