The Knicks were crushed by Oklahoma City last night, but an opponent far more deadly than Kevin Durant was to blame. It seems the team had trouble resting up because their hotel was haunted.

Legend has it that the Skirvin Hilton in downtown Oklahoma City is haunted by the ghost of a chamber maid who leapt to her death from the tenth floor over 70 years ago, while holding her illegitimate child that was fathered by the hotel's founder. In order to exact their vengeance, the crying baby and the sexy whore spirit kept Eddy Curry awake all night and that's why his DNP led to an 18-point New York loss. Or something.


This is not the first time a home team has used supernatural road beef to trap visiting opponents, but of all the ghosts to haunt the Knicks organization over the last decade I'd still say Isiah's is the scariest.
