Eddy Curry’s had a tough run of things ever since, well, he landed in the NBA. He’s playing ball with a bad ticker, and recently, he got a lawsuit filed against him by a fat man’s clothing store. And, don’t forget, he plays for the Knicks.
Now things have gotten even more embarrassing, as news dropped last night that he’s being sued for sexual harassment. By another man.
In a lawsuit filed Monday in federal court, the former driver, Dave Kuchinsky, claimed that Curry, the Knicks’ center, owed him $68,000 in back wages and another $25,000 for charges made on Kuchinsky’s credit card. In the suit, Kuchinsky also described two incidents in which he claimed Curry dropped his pants and made lewd and suggestive remarks.
[...]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.”
This is almost too insane to be true, if we weren’t talking about the New York Knicks, where this is almost run of the mill type stuff.
But the thing is … what’s less believable? The fact that Curry made his driver clean up his beatrags? Or the fact that Curry kept calling a guy that worked for him a grandmaster of the Klan? I mean, if you’ve been to prison for a bunch of shit and you want to try and get your boss in trouble for whipping out his junk and saying “My dick is 14 times bigger than yours, dood,” you should probably go about it in a little more plausible manner.
