New York Knicks Eddy Curry home robbery at gunpoint

 The New York Knicks center Eddy Curry was bobbed at gunpoint in his Chicago home on Saturday.

New York Knicks Eddy Curry home robbery at gunpoint Three masked gunmen broke into the home of the NY Knicks' Eddy Curry and held him and his family hostage at gunpoint, while cleaning the place.

 According to the police, the robbers duct-taped Curry, his wife Korie and an unnamed employee, then robbed the place clean, stealing jewelry, cash and other valuables. After the gunmen took the loot, they left them unharmed. It is unknown how the robbers entered the house, which happened early on Saturday.

 Some reports indicate that the robbery is not a random incident and the thieves may have stalked the place for a while, considering the clean entry and exit. The price tag of the damage has not been disclosed.

 Eddy Curry declined to comment, but the New York Nicks published the following statement: "We are aware of the situation. We are extremely happy that Eddy and his family are all safe. He told us it was a traumatic experience and we are aware the local authorities are handling it."

 This is not the first incident in Chicago for NBA. In 2005 the brother of Knicks forward Quentin Richardson was shot dead during a robbery in front of his Chicago home and just earlier this month the Miami Heat forward Antoine Walker was also held at gunpoint during a robbery similar to the Eddy Curry incident. According to the Chicago police, there is no evidence that the robberies are connected.

 Curry, 24, who was traded to the Knicks by the Chicago Bulls in 2005, averaged 19.5 points and seven rebounds for the Knicks' last season. Visit our NBA Stats, updated in real time, for all your basketball data needs.
