How’s this for taking the shine off a terrific win in New Orleans? Thoughout his NBA career, underachieving Knicks C Eddy Curry has been accused of shying away from physical play. If the accusations of a disgruntled limo driver are credible, perhaps Curry has been seriously misjudged. From the New York Post’s Melissa Jane Kronfeld and Bruce Golding :
The stunning court papers claim Curry, a married father of three, repeatedly approached chauffeur David Kuchinsky “in the nude,” allegedly telling him, “Look at me, Dave, look” and “Come and touch it, Dave.”
Curry also made Kuchinsky perform “humiliating tasks outside the scope of his employment, such as cleaning up and removing dirty towels [Curry had ejaculated into] so that his wife would not see them,” the Manhattan federal court suit says.
Kuchinsky, who is straight and Jewish, also alleges racial discrimination, saying that Curry hurled slurs at him including “f—ing Jew,” “cracker,” “white slave,” “white devil” and “grandmaster of the KKK.”
And in a disturbing episode reminiscent of some of the evidence in the manslaughter case against former Nets star Jayson Williams, Kuchinsky further claims in his suit that Curry pointed a “fully loaded” gun at him on at least two separate occasions to keep him from complaining about his treatment.
“Look, I have one in the chamber,” Curry allegedly said.
