    OKLAHOMA CITY - The Knicks were afraid, very afraid. And it had nothing to do with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

    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.

    For years, guests staying at the Skirvin Hilton have reported ghost sightings and strange noises. Legend has it that sometime in the 1930s, a woman jumped to her death while holding her baby in her hands.

    "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."

    OK, I can't stop laughing, but considering what Eddy Curry has gone through, I can't help but sympathize with him a little.

    HAHA!


    Anyone else think of that South Park where all the towns people wanted to drive out all the rich black people (Will Smith, Puff Daddy, etc) so they dressed up like ghosts and ended up looking like the KKK?

    Curry was probably kept awake by dreams of pizza and Ding Dongs. What a moron.

    wouldn't the Thunder love to book every one of their opponents on the 10th Floor of the Skirvin?

    reminds me of the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego...
