Eddie Curry Robbed at Gunpoint in Chicago Home July 28, 2007Posted by Marquis Chapman in Basketball, NBA, Sports.
ESPN reports Knicks center Eddie Curry was robbed at gunpoint early Saturday morning in his Chicago surburban home. The robbers tied up Curry, his family, and an employee in the home and left with cash and jewelry. No one was injured in the incident.
This is the second case of a NBA player getting robbed in his home by gunpoint. Miami Heat forward Antoine Walker was robbed at his Chicago home earlier this month. Walker and a relative were also tied up. The robbers got away with a car, cash, and jewelry.
This is some crazy news. Two NBA players robbed at their homes in the same month! Players are going to have to start watching their backs and hire 24 hour security. These players go out to clubs, bars, and rough neighborhoods all the time. Yet, they end up getting robbed in their homes?! You’d think the one place the players would be safe is their own home. Man, these guys in Chicago are ruthless. MJ better watch out.
