First Antoine Walker, now Eddy Curry. If you’re an NBA player living in greater Chicago, you should probably follow ‘Toine out of town and look into moving to Gary, Indiana. It’s apparently safer, and Leon Smith doesn’t seem to be playing there anymore. WCBS TV’s online arm details the recent robbery at the Knicks’ pivot’s home:
New York Knicks Center Eddy Curry was robbed in his suburban Chicago home early Saturday morning.
Police do not believe the robbery at Curry’s home was a random act.
Family friend and brother of Knicks coach and general manager Isiah Thomas, Mark Thomas, spoke on behalf of Curry after the basketball player and his family went through a robbery that involved three masked men that restrained the Curry family and an employee at around 12:15 a.m. The invaders fled the home with cash and jewelry, according to Burr Ridge Deputy Chief John Madden.
“At this time they’re fine, everybody’s doing well and at this time, they don’t have any comment,” said Thomas.
Police are investigating how the three men, armed with handguns, got into the house. They’re going over surveillance video from the camera mounted at Curry’s front door.
