Eddy Curry loves New York

Time to worry about Curry?

Time to worry about Curry?

Now Eddy Curry hasn’t played much basketball this season (2 minutes, 38 seconds), but working in New York must have its perks. Fine dining establishments, front row seats to Knicks games and your own driver taking care of ‘all’ your needs. Coach D’Antoni hinted at the big fellas knee injuries and how they could be stemming from his tub of flub. With the Knicks running an up tempo offensive system, Curry needs to be in strong game shape and form in order to fit into this offense. He’s currently overweight and not dropping too many pounds anytime soon. Curry was set be the enforcer for the Knicks, but with the knee injury has not been able to contribute. Tyson Chandler had this to say about his friend “Maybe his opportunity will come elsewhere. There are so many teams in this league, especially in the East, where they bang and grind. There is a place for big guys that score on the block.” Knicks have been rumored to be offering Curry in trade talks.

The weight problems aren’t the only issues in Eddy’s New York state of mind. Former driver, David Kuchinsky presented a sexual harassment suit against the Knick center. He claims that Curry tried to solicit gay sex from him. Kuchinsky also claims Curry approached him in the nude saying “Look at me, Dave, look” and “Come and touch it, Dave.” He also claims he was ordered “out of the scope of his employment” to remove and wash Eddy’s dirty tag rags.

It doesn’t end here. Kuchinsky, both straight and Jewish, claims racial discrimination saying Curry threw racial slurs at him including “f—ing Jew,” “cracker,” “white slave,” “white devil” and “grandmaster of the KKK.” He also says Curry allegedly pointed a gun at him on two separate occasions, showing him a bullet present in the chamber. A groggy Isiah Thomas would then limp in calling Kuchinsky a “b*tch” and yank the gold chain from Kuchinsky’s neck. He would then offer it in a trade for two twinkies and a slim Jim to the pawn shop down the street. (Isiah comments are only harsh rumors)

He was hired as his full-time chauffeur but eventually became his errand boy and a character for abuse. Kuchinsky says he is owed $68,000 in unpaid wages, as well as $25,000 in expenses for which Curry never repaid him.
Curry’s lawyer, Kelly Saindon, denied all of allegations, calling them “absolutely untrue,” and saying Kuchinsky began making a series of claims for unpaid wages several months ago, upping the ante each time. Curry refused to comment before last night’s game.

From fat boy to frat boy!
