Knicks believe OKC hotel was haunted

Lots of NBA basketball talk revolves around minor things like offense, defense, wins, and losses. While those trivial things are perhaps worthy of at least partial attention, there’s not enough emphasis on haunted hotel discussion.

That’s right. Teams have to worry about whether the hotel they’re staying in is filled with ghosts. Or at least that’s a concern some Knicks players had when visiting Oklahoma City to play the Thunder.

Frank Isola of the New York Daily News reports:

For two days, several players had trouble sleeping because they were convinced that their downtown hotel is haunted.

“I definitely believe it,” Jared Jeffries said. “The place is haunted. It’s scary.”

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.

The Thunder should urge all visiting teams to stay there. That’s a pretty sweet advantage!

One thought on “Knicks believe OKC hotel was haunted”

  1. Those ghost things are very common. There are spirit everywhere roaming day and night good and bad. You dont disturb them they will just be there and when you sight them just tell them, “may they rest in peace” and give you peace as well for you are not out there to disturb them. Just think of the caretakers in cemeteries and funeral parlors, they could not be bothered.

    Big guys like NBA players shouldn’t have small balls for this eerie happenings.

    The bottom line, they have little faith in their hearts with God the Almighty.
