Haunted Hotel?

OKLAHOMA CITY - The Knicks were afraid, very afraid. And it had nothing to do with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

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. Legend has it that sometime in the 1930s, a woman jumped to her death while holding her baby in her hands.

"They said it happened on the 10th floor and I'm the only one staying on the 10th floor," Curry said. "That's why I spent most of my time in (Nate Robinson's) room. I definitely believe there are ghosts in that hotel."

Assistant coach Herb Williams teased Jeffries and Curry for believing that the Skirvin is haunted, but Curry wasn't laughing.

"There are too many stories," Curry said. "Something is going on there."

I heard they had to hire Jennifer Love Huget*ts to help crack the case.

Donnie Walsh didn't entirely dismiss the concept of New York trading for Gilbert Arenas when asked about it on Friday.

"I don't know if he's available, and I don’t know if he’s going to be able to play. There are a lot of questions, and we’ll have to see as time passes what the story is, but I know this: When I had guys in the same situation, I traded all of them," Walsh said.

Walsh was running the Pacers when he was essentially forced to trade both Ron Artest and Stephen Jackson for behavior issues.

"I’d have to make that decision at that time," said Walsh when asked if he would sacrifice his future cap space to acquire Arenas. "But he’s a very good player."

Jay Triano didn't express much concern about Chris Bosh's future in Toronto during the club's visit to New York on Friday.

Relaying what he saw as the team arrived for the pregame shootaround, he said, "All I know is when we pulled in on the bus this morning, the billboard [outside the Garden] still said LeBron [James]. So I'm not worried."

Donnie Walsh has invited former Indiana Pacers player and executive Mel Daniels to work with him over the next few weeks.

Walsh and Daniels have worked together for nearly 30 years. Daniels was let go as the Pacers' director of player personnel in October.

There is a possibility that the Knicks could add Daniels to the front office permanently but Walsh indicated Friday night that he asked Daniels to come to New York to spend time with him and give his perspective on the club.

Your typical Marc Berman piece...he should write for TMZ.


AUBURN HILLS -- The giddy dance of December has quickly turned into chaos in January.

The Knicks have hit the skids. A boiling Larry Hughes called coach Mike D'Antoni's unpredictable rotation "a joke." D'Antoni ripped the team for lacking "a desire to win" and again is confused over who to play.

D'Antoni plugged in Hughes last night to disastrous results as the Knicks were hammered by the mediocre Pistons before their late comeback fell short in a 94-90 defeat at The Palace.

The Knicks (16-24) were defeated for the fourth time in five games, as Hughes' feud with D'Antoni rose to a new level.

D'Antoni, too, was fuming afterward at the Knicks' lack of f!ght in the first half when they fell behind by 21 points. In their last three losses to Oklahoma City, Toronto and Detroit, they have essentially been blown out, falling behind by at least 21 before making comebacks that fell short.

The melodrama centered on Hughes last night. Hughes said before the game that he had met with Knicks president Donnie Walsh over his benching and D'Antoni's lack of communication. He was then blindsided when D'Antoni put him in to start the second quarter after not playing him for seven straight games.

"It's a joke, that's what it is," Hughes said. "A joke."

Asked to be more specific, Hughes caught himself.

"It's right after," Hughes said. "I don't want to do too much right now."

Hughes played nine minutes and went scoreless -- going 0-for-4. With Hughes on the floor, rhe Knicks' one-point lead turned into a nine-point deficit and they never recovered until it was too late. Hughes didn't play in the second half.

"I have to look at the film and see if I'm that bad," said Hughes, who seemed angry he got just spot minutes and wasn't notified he'd be playing until his number was called.

D'Antoni indicated before the game he still wasn't ready to go with Hughes. Afterward, D'Antoni said he was "trying to catch lightning in a bottle again," referring to Nate Robinson's 41-point return after a 14-game banishment.

Jonathan Bender was benched to make room for Hughes. D'Antoni also benched Chris Duhon for the final 20 minutes. Duhon was held scoreless, going 0-for-3 with four turnovers for his second straight putrid outing.

D'Antoni, meanwhile, blasted the team for another awful first half.

"We had a lack of energy, lack of focus and urgency, the main guys didn't come out with any kind of desire to win," said D'Antoni. "Our playoffs are not in May. Our playoffs are now. We can't waste any games. We wasted one tonight."

Before the game, Hughes said his meeting with Walsh went well as he told him he was confused as to why D'Antoni benched him and was hurt the coach hadn't explained it to him.

"It's frustrating. I want to play," Hughes said. "I haven't done anything to warrant not playing. I don't really have a concrete reason why I'm not playing. It's easier to know why. I definitely want to know.

"I voiced all my opinions and voiced everything I was feeling," Hughes said. "I feel positive. I left the meeting with a lot off my shoulders."

The Hughes situation could lead to an eventual divorce.

"We talked, good conversation, we'll see where it goes," Hughes said. "Donnie and my agent [will] figure out the best solution to what's going on. We had a good talk. He understands where I'm coming from and I understand where he's coming from."

David Lee, who played all 48 minutes on Friday, had plenty of verve last night at the outset. Lee scored 16 of the Knicks' 24 first-quarter points as they led 24-23. But he ran out of steam and Ben Wallace put him in his place. Big Ben blocked three of Lee's shots in the third quarter.

The Knicks were so bad they allowed ex-Knick Chris Wilcox to dominate with 14 points and 10 boards. Wilcox left as a free agent over the summer, with Walsh barely giving him a second glance.

man o' man...Grizz with 3 first rounders, would be nice if we can get one even if it's the 30th pick (maybe can package that with our 2nd rounder if somebody of use becomes available

Miami has two in the late teens (with the way things are going), but i doubt they'd trade with us :(

Larry Hughes has voiced his displeasure about the lack of playing time from Mike D'Antoni, with both the media and with Donnie Walsh.

D'Antoni played Hughes in the first half of Saturday's game at Detroit.

"Mike and I are on the same page with this team," Walsh said Sunday. "He coaches the team. He makes the substitutions. I understand why he does it. We talk about it. I met with Larry and listened to what he had to say. That's my job. I told Mike about that. But I didn't tell him before the game. I don't order Mike to play anybody. I don't do that. Never have.

"I don't tell the coach who to play."

what a shocker, LBJ is all talk and won't be in the slam dunk contest.....this years 4 is Slam Dunk Champ, Nate Robinson, Gerald Wallace, Shannon Brown and whoever wins between DeMar DeRozan and Eric Gordon

Alan Hahn says LBJ was in the mix last week but he fronted like a b**ch...even suggests that Nate should dunk over him while rocking a Knick jersey

ALAN HAHN

The Knicks had just defeated the Indiana Pacers by 43 points and there were reporters lingering near the stall of Larry Hughes, who was the only active player who didn't get in the game.

Around the room were several standouts from the most dominant win of the season for a Knick team that - at the time - was playing its best basketball and creeping closer and closer to the top 8 in the East.

But as Hughes turned around and tape recorders extended to his face, he became the story.

Place the blame everywhere:

On him, for taking the opportunity to put himself ahead of the team.

On the media, for giving him the forum to do so.

On you, because it's proven fact that a majority of you actually respond to this kind of coverage.

This second incident, however, goes squarely on Hughes' shoulders. The fact that after re-iterating his frustration before the game in Detroit on Saturday -- when he played 8:24 -- made it a given that reporters would seek his reaction afterward. It was his choice to call it "a joke" and proceed to squirt lighter fluid all over the smoldering coals.

Right in front of his exhausted teammates, who were already annoyed at him for dumping water on their Jan. 3 blowout win.

Yes, it's a joke that a veteran of 11 NBA seasons warmed up with a coffee stirrer in his mouth before a road game. It's a joke he would not understand how when he was in the eight-man rotation, he had no issue with Mike D'Antoni's structure, but once Nate Robinson jumped into his timeslot, D'Antoni was wrong.

It's a joke that Hughes, who played in 700 NBA games before Saturday, would need a heads up to be ready to play.

Wouldn't that suggest that Hughes - who promoted himself as a veteran leader earlier this season when he and Al Harrington called a team meeting - was sitting on the bench disengaged during the previous seven games?

Full disclosure: It's been written in this space before that Hughes did and still could help the Knicks mainly because of his versatility. He is a good defender but is also someone who could provide a needed backup point guard role, which is clearly not in Robinson's skill set. He should split time with Robinson in that third guard role, depending on the need of a particular night.

But Hughes has said before -- let's remind you of his outspoken frustration in Chicago -- that he's not interested in spot minutes.

Hughes said on Saturday he just wants to win. But we know what this is really about. He, like seven other Knicks, are in expiring contracts.

Al Harrington, who hangs a lot of Hughes away from the gym, is still getting his ticks, even with the young legs of rookie Jordan Hill ready to bounce right over him in the rotation.

Imagine the toxicty of the room if D'Antoni ever made the decision to play Hill over Harrington (who is f!ghting through sore knees)?

The end of the bench has become a frustrated wasteland of persecuted personalities. Darko Milicic hardly gave an effort and, instead of working harder, just wants to go home (but wants to get all of his money while he does it). Eddy Curry got himself into shape for the first time in two years and expects that to be enough to warrant playing time (Hey Eddy, how about going to the coaching staff and working on ways you can use the pick-and-roll to your advantage? What ever happened to being proactive??).

It's funny, Curry has the same agent as LeBron James (Leon Rose) and Hughes is texting buddies with LeBron.

If LeBron considers those dealbreakers in coming to New York, you don't really want him here anyway.

* - If you're attending today's MLK matinee at the Garden, head to Penn Station's Amtrak concourse at 11 a.m. for a cool NBA event. "Speed painter" Dan Dunn will paint portraits of the participants in the Sprite Slam Dunk contest for All-Star Saturday in Dallas on Feb. 13.

Will defending champion Nate Robinson be among them? Earlier in the season, Robinson said he'd go back for a fourth time if LeBron James agreed to participate. At last year's contest, LeBron said he would consider entering the contest to bring back some of the cache from the 1980s back to the show.

Nate Robinson of the New York Knicks will attempt to become the first three-time winner of the slam dunk competition when he defends his title in Dallas. Robinson will compete against the Charlotte Bobcats’ Gerald Wallace and the Los Angeles Lakers’ Shannon Brown.

The Toronto Raptors’ DeMar DeRozan and the Los Angeles Clippers’ Eric Gordon will compete in the NBA All-Star Slam Dunk-In, a single-round slam dunk competition that will be held at halftime of the Rookie Challenge.

LeBron James announced during last year's dunk contest that he would compete this season, but he is not scheduled to appear. Many have speculated that LeBron would be allowed to compete up until the start of the contest, should he change his mind.
