TheÂ Knicks were afraid, very afraid. And it had nothing to do with theÂ Oklahoma City Thunder. For two days, several players had trouble sleeping because they were convinced that their downtown hotel is haunted.Â “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.
