Knicks Eddie Curry ordered to pay $1.2 million debt

How large? Try a $17,000-a-month suburban New York home, a $6,000-a-month personal chef and a dozen cars. Jay-Z thinks that is large.

So did the judge that ordered Curry to pay $1.2 million in personal loan debt on Monday.

Curry made $10.5 million last year, an exorbitant sum considering he played seven games and averaged 3.7 points per game in those. He has played 10 games in the last two years for the Knicks. But apparently that requires a personal chef. Who knew?

Curry and All Star (the company to which he owes the debt) are close to a settlement, attorneys said. So he will owe less. But his wages are already garnished to the tune of $207,000. This man is earning his debt in a way Knicks fans would only hope he earns rebounds.

Curry has “earned” $57.3 million over his career, and will make $11.3 million next season. That will cover the debt, but if you can’t live on $10 million a year you need to work on some things. I mean, I can’t, but bloggers make huge money.
