Update: Knicks OKC Loss Due to Ghosts, Not Durant

According to the New York Daily News, the Knicks say their haunted hotel was a problem before loss to Thunder:

For two days, several players had trouble sleeping because they were convinced that their downtown hotel is haunted.

“I definitely believe it,” Jared Jeffries said. “The place is haunted. It’s scary.”

Eddy Curry claims he slept for only two hours Sunday night because he couldn’t stop thinking about ghosts roaming the hotel.

Curry then went on to say that he was so scared he was only able to eat three tubs of ice cream instead of his usual seven.

Whew!  That explains why the Knicks looked lost and scared against the Thunder.  Mars Blackmon (aka Spike Lee) once marveled at Michael Jordan’s abilities and declared, “It’s gotta be the shoes.”  Here, the loss — it’s gotta be the hotel.

Next year, we stay at a Sheraton.

    Since this year’s Knicks are so uninteresting on the floor, I’m recommending this blog use part of the ’10-’11 season to take a harder look at the celeb gossip angle of the team. Sure, none of the Knicks are even on the celeb D-list yet (although I do seem to remember Larry Hughes in a pretty good Nelly video with Kelly Rowland) but if you push the sleazy gossip hard on this blog it should just be a matter of time before mainstream America can learn just how shady Danilo and KryptoNate are off the court when they think no one is looking.
    IMHO, this ghost story is just getting going.

    Two stories I’d like to see pursued:
    1) Does Eddy Curry pack heat in the locker room to make sure he can shoot at the ghosts should they choose to chase him out of the hotel (a la Gilbert Arenas)?

    2) Why doesn’t anyone in the media call out the obvious BOOTY CALL that Eddy made to Nate Robinson in OKC? Ghosts schmosts, I think this story is sitting there waiting for Short White Boy to crack it wide open.

    Former Knick (& former Everyteam) Quentin Richardson used to date Brandy. But I dunno, I doubt this team is even that interesting off the court. Probably Hughes and Nate are the only ones who do anything potentially gossip-worthy.

    And you’re totally right about Eddy and Nate — I can’t believe I missed it. Like c’mon, Eddy at 6 foot eleven and 540 pounds is gonna go to two foot tall Nate for protection? Clearly, something’s up between them. The sad thing about it? You know Curry’s on bottom.
