Default Pg 2 Eddy Curry Antoine Walker Robberies


Hey, did you hear the one about the celebrities who were tied up, held hostage at gunpoint and lived to tell about it? It goes something like this:
Antoine Walker
Antoine Walker was a victim -- why haven't we heard more about that?
CHICAGO (AP) -- Two hulking NBA stars were bound with duct tape and robbed of cash and jewelry by masked gunmen in separate holdups that have Chicago-area detectives wondering whether someone is targeting professional athletes.

On July 9, Antoine Walker and a family member were held hostage in Walker's town house while four armed men made off with valuables and his Mercedes-Benz. Less than three weeks later, Eddy Curry and his family were victims of a similar break-in.

Don't be embarrassed if you've already forgotten about the two players' brushes with death this summer or if you missed them altogether. Neither was a big story. The Washington Post stuck Walker's news on the notes page of its sports section, right between Greg Oden's tonsillectomy and the signing of Wolves rookie Corey Brewer. The St. Petersburg Times ran a brief on Walker and Curry after a Croatia Open update. That's tennis, for those out of the loop.
