New York Knicks Believe Oklahoma Hotel Was Haunted

New York Knicks Believe Oklahoma Hotel Was HauntedI would comment more thoroughly on this story, but I have a family history of heart conditions, and I fear that talking about this in detail would make me sufficiently angry that I’d end up with shooting pains in my left arm.  Ladies and gentlemen, your New York Knicks:

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.

Good gravy.  These are grown -nay, overgrown- men who claim to have underperformed due to poor sleep over ghost concerns.  Ghosts.  Like Casper the friendly one, and other fictional characters.  It goes on.

"They said it happened on the 10th floor and I’m the only one staying on the 10th floor," Curry said. "That’s why I spent most of my time in (Nate Robinson’s) room. I definitely believe there are ghosts in that hotel."

Assistant coach Herb Williams teased Jeffries and Curry for believing that the Skirvin is haunted, but Curry wasn’t laughing.

"There are too many stories," Curry said. "Something is going on there."

If you’ll excuse me, I have to see a doctor about these pains developing in my chest.
