Most of you Both Teamsters should probably know Zach Harper from, among many other things, his contributions to The NBA Logo Ranking Project and our on-going Talking Hoops with Talk Hoops series. (That reminds me, I actually owe him an email right now as a matter of fact … stay tuned).
Well, he and some other NBA scholars have a podcast that I rather enjoy called The Weekly Fix, and they just dropped the 81st episode today, which I will presume is the Terrell Owens edition. That’s quite a few, so kudos on that, Mssrs. Harper, Gallawa and Eisner.
I haven’t listened to it yet, so I’m not really here to endorse this particular episode. I just needed to point out how great the photo is that they included in the post.
It’s the top one of Manu, Peja and some other dudes.
I have included two other photos that it reminded me of.
We should probably start calling Eddy Curry by the name “Gas Giant.” You in?
I know Halloween is over, and the title of this post conjures a brand of horrifying terror that not even Michael Myers can match, but, fortunately, the below video is only about his tattoos. (Although if you do really want a good Eddy Curry body-related scare in your life, just click right here and look at this photo.)
But Big Ed reveals his inattention to detail and fundamental logic when he tries to articulate the fact that, sure, he was inspired by AI, but, unlike other people, he didn’t want to emulate The Answer. Says Curry: “A lot of people were copying his tattoos and a lot of my friends were copying his tattoos. I’m glad I didn’t do that.”
Apparently, Curry either (a) is not actually familiar with the tattoos Allen that has, or (b) does not recall getting a Chinese character put on his neck and has not looked in a mirror since that happened. Because Allen has Chinese characters on his neck and so does Eddy.
I’m not an anatomy professor, but that seems somewhat similar.
Eddy Curry is considering a defamation suit against his former driver to combat the explosive sexual harassment and racial discrimination accusations levied against the Knicks center, Curry’s lawyer told Newsday yesterday.
“We’re considering any and all legal remedies,” Curry’s Chicago-based lawyer, Kelly Saindon said, “because this is just crazy.”
In addition to potentially suing Kuchinsky for defamation of character, Saindon said she will file a motion to dismiss the lawsuit on the basis that Kuchinsky’s employment contract stated that any workplace disputes would be brought before the American Arbitration Association in Chicago.
The stunning court papers claim Curry, a married father of three, repeatedly approached chauffeur David Kuchinsky “in the nude,” allegedly telling him, “Look at me, Dave, look” and “Come and touch it, Dave.”
Curry also made Kuchinsky perform “humiliating tasks outside the scope of his employment, such as cleaning up and removing dirty towels [Curry had ejaculated into] so that his wife would not see them,” the Manhattan federal court suit says.
Kuchinsky, who is straight and Jewish, also alleges racial discrimination, saying that Curry hurled slurs at him including “f—ing Jew,” “cracker,” “white slave,” “white devil” and “grandmaster of the KKK.”
[Curry’s] lawyer, Kelly Saindon, denied all of Kuchinsky’s allegations, calling them “absolutely untrue,” and saying he began making a series of claims for unpaid wages several months ago, upping the ante each time.
Saindon said Curry took a chance on hiring Kuchinsky despite a criminal record that includes a three-year prison sentence for a 1992 burglary in New Jersey. He also got three years’ probation in a 2004 resisting-arrest case in the Garden State, records show.
“It’s shocking that Eddy opened his home to a convicted felon out of prison, and gave him a job when he couldn’t find a job, and this is what comes out of it,” she said. “The entire thing is preposterous.”
Who knows? Regardless, just one more to add to the Knicks resume.
