The Knicks are paying portly, immobile, atrophying center Eddy Curry $11,276,863 next season, and it kind of looks like he'll need it. Despite having made $57,267,294 in his career so far, Curry is massively in debt. He has yet to pay back a $570,000 loan from Allstar Capital, and a judge yesterday ordered him to fork over $75,000 a month plus interest and to give up three of his cars. What caused all the problems? Curry seems to have taken one of the most massive payday zap-loans on earth: a five-month personal loan at an 85 percent interest rate. "Mr. Curry appears to be a very, very generous man," an Allstate Capital lawyer said. "He appears to have taken it upon himself to support every person named Curry on the East Coast." Money well spent, by Curry, by the Knicks, by everybody — clearly.
