Knicks say hotel was haunted
While spending two nights in Oklahoma City, some members of the Knicks bought into the stories about the Skirvin Hilton hotel where they stayed being haunted.
"I definitely believe it," Jared Jeffries told the New York Daily News. "The place is haunted. It's scary."
Jeffries said he had trouble sleeping, as did Eddy Curry, who said he was out for only two hours on Sunday night. The hotel's tales include ghost sightings and reports of strange noises. There also is a yarn about a woman jumping to her death from the hotel in the 1930s, 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 told the Daily News. "That's why I spent most of my time in (Nate Robinson's) room. I definitely believe there are ghosts in that hotel."
"There are too many stories," Curry added. "Something is going on there."
But perhaps the Knicks' losing trip to Oklahoma had much more to do with the Thunder rising from the ashes. With the victory, led by Kevin Durant's 30 points, they are 21-16. After 37 games last season, they were 5-32.
