Eddy Curry’s Side of the Story

by Marcel Mutoni

So, big win for the Knicks last night. Let’s get into why they defeated the Hornets. What, is there something else going on with that franchise? Oh right … THAT!

Here’s Eddy Curry’s response to the charges against him that he tried to solicit gay sex from his former driver. Via Newsday:

“This is absolutely false,” Curry said. “It’s incredible. I can’t even believe it.”

“He had approached my friends and me a while back trying to get money and stuff like that,” Curry said. “I just never thought — especially with the past that me and him had — I never thought that it would go past where it did, which is idle threats; ‘I want some money or else’ kind of stuff. I guess it’s just like a prime example of you just got to watch who you have around you. This is a guy who I really thought was my friend up until the last four or five months. I can’t even believe this has happened.”

For what it’s worth, here’s teammate Malik Rose take on things: “I know for a fact Eddy’s not gay.”

And because Eddy clearly didn’t have enough to deal with in his life at this point, his coach diplomatically stated that the big fella needs to lose some weight if he plans on seeing the court. Somehow, I don’t think that’s his biggest concern this morning.

    And how exactly do you know this, Malik?

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    Ah, Malik. He doesn’t say, “I know for a fact that Eddy isn’t a raging racist, anti-Semitic bully,” or “I know for a fact that Eddy would never point a loaded gun at someone.” He says, “I know for a fact that Eddy’s not gay.”
    It should be fun to watch this story progress.

    “especially with the past that me and him had ”
    That line seemed a bit strange too me, if not ambiguous

    Well, at least Eddy is fat.

    maybe d’antoni has to try a different approach, and tell him that he’s not sexy enough at his current weight.

  • Ric Hardwood

    Malik Rose has proof Eddy is not gay. He said after getting it in the b*tt Eddy didn’t like it… lol

    How the hell does Malik Rose know Eddy is not gay? Seriously, are they running trains together?

  • http://champnation.com Champ Nation

    I really don’t know who to believe in this story.

  • Keith

    This is such a shame to hear. Eddy was such a great player.

  • donlaker

    eddie your basketball skills are gay(happy)you should work harder in the low post and keep what you and your driver do behind tinted bling doors

  • ray allen fan

    the only jammin gay dude is rudy of memphis his game is nice (but not in a sexual way)

  • http://docfunk.blogspot.com Doc Funk

    well if malik rose says so…

  • http://nbacheapseats.blogspot.com Chendaddy

    this is obviously just a ploy by some disgruntled former employee to extort money. hope his ass ends up in jail where they’ll teach him what getting sexually molested really is like.

  • G Diesel

    Malik Rose knows that Eddy is not gay because they’ve been in a Patoutou together!

    This thing will go away eventually, as Curry no doubt has better lawyers and the money to pay them, while the driver’s attorney is almost assuredly working on a commission. Curry can stretch this thing out and eventually the driver’s attorney will tire of it. However, it might be cheaper for Curry just to pay the guy $100,000 to go away.
    By the way, it’s 85 degrees outside right now. So f-ck you Jones.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    Thanks for the scumbag legal insight, Bodie, you scumbag lawyer. Anyway, I got my fill of “nice” weather when in Cali over New Year’s. Really, I’d much prefer the 28 and cloudy I’m, uh, enjoying right now. It’s supposed to be 2 degrees on Thursday…

  • http://fdsjklf.com Jukai

    It’s funny, I’m sure the Knicks organization and Eddy Curry’s family would LOVE to stretch out this court case until the other attorney gets tired of it. I’m sure they want this continually in the New York Post all the time, who are dying to give a constant status update on this. Yes, great lawyer advice.

  • http://docfunk.blogspot.com Doc Funk

    Yeah, this case needs its own Twitter

  • Cizzo

  • http://www.another48minutes.blogspot.com Gerard Himself

    I wonder what Curry’s wife and kids think of this….
    anyway, I don’t believe the story at all. This didn’t happen, just another freeloader trying to get money.

    Eddy gotta be a fan of Bromance

    Somewhat more than bromance, Sherm.

    Eddy Curry’s response to the allegations via the AP

    “Everyone who knows me knows I’m not a racist,” Curry told reporters following New York’s 101-99 victory over the host New Orleans Hornets on Monday. “I have never made a comment like that — playing or nothing.

    “Aside from the fact I wouldn’t do it because I’m not racist, I wouldn’t do it because I wouldn’t want someone to play with me like that. That is incredible, man.”

    This guy WATCHES Bromance

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com H to the Izzo

    Being gay is illegal?

  • http://myspace.com/bodiebarnett jbn74sb

    Of course it is, Izzo, unless you live in San Francisco or the backwoods of Pennsylvania, where it’s encouraged.

    Somehow don’t think this is true. Curry’s problems really have largely been on-court (i.e. lack of defense, sucking, irrelevance). I don’t recall him being caught up in the whole Thomas/Starbury fiasco. Nor did he get caught up in the Nuggets mini-fight 2 years back. He also seemed like a good kid with a good fam when I first read about him in that Slam interview when he was a high school standout, long ago. A relatively clean track record while being on the league’s drama-filled sideshow team says a lot. I hope he doesn’t prove me wrong.

    This is just some dude trying to extort money.

    just beat up the faggot/extorionist.

  • chintao

    Everybody’s acting like Eddy has to be gay or straight. What about the possibility that he is bi-sexual? Many people say that bi-sexuals are just greedy, and we already know that Curry has prodigous appetites. Anything is possible.
