How In The Heck Did Eddy Curry Manage To Rack Up $73K In Auto Repair Bills?

Like most professional athletes, New York Knicks center Eddy Curry has an affinity for luxury automobiles, and now he is getting sued over unpaid auto repairs to said luxury automobiles to the tune of $73,000.

The lawsuit, filed by Lee’s Foreign Car Service in Chicago, stems from auto repairs conducted by the shop from 2007 and 2008. Curry had work done on several of his vehicles at Lee’s, including a Cadillac Escalade, Mercedes Benz, Range Rover, and Rolls Royce Phantom. Curry actually wrote checks for the repairs but the checks were “returned by the bank for non-sufficient funds,” the lawsuit alleges, because, you know, how is it possible for a person to keep funds in his checking account when one was only taking home a paltry $8,171,103 and $8,947,543 in annual income, his yearly salary in the years when the work was performed? Things are tough all over, you know.

Further, how in the holy hell does a Cadillac, Mercedes, Range Rover and a Rolls Royce, presumably all in spectacular condition, require that much in repairs? I know parts are expensive on these kind of vehicles, but still. Unless these repairs were instead modifications and upgrades to already stellar vehicles, then that’s a different story. Yet we come back to the fact that Curry earned nearly $17 million in those years. It boggles the mind, really. Jesus, if I had that kind of money to throw around, I would most certainly have the most pimped out Volkswagen Jetta in all the land. And I wouldn’t owe some shop $73K in bills because of bounced checks, either. I will have you know I can do my own oil changes and wiper blade replacements, thank you very much. Because I’m a manly man, you see. As if you couldn’t tell that by my masculine prose.
