Via TKB, Frank Isola has us covered on the ghost story from before last night's Knicks-Thunder game:

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."

First of all, I desperately wish the word "ghouls" was used somewhere in this story.

Second of all, I'm gonna file this into the under-used "Steve Francis Hauntings" category. Steve's meddlesome ghost hasn't reared its spectral head in years, but this has all the trappings of a Francis haunting: strange noises, falling babies, etc.

Third of all, Eddy Curry has every right to fear the undead, especially after the time this past summer that a phantom rock band haunted his house.

Really, though, Matt Moore has the whole thing figured out.
