A Tale of Two Centers: Krstic and Curry

On the eve of the season's finale, the New York Times profiles the Nets and Knicks young centers. John Eligon writes about how a hunger for the game as well as real hunger drove Nenad Krstic's desire to succeed. He describes how growing up in war-torn Yugoslavia helped the Nets' center develop his toughness and work ethic. Howard Beck writes about how disappointing Eddy Curry has been, but notes as well that he is likely better than any draft pick this year.
