Former Carmelo Anthony ‘Baby Shaq’ teammate reveals Knicks players used to ‘cheat on their wives’ with special code

The name Baby Shaq was probably given to a lot of great men after Shaquille O’Neal, but it all started with Eddy Curry.

The NBA had another Curry long before Dell Curry’s sons entered the league in 2009 and after. The 6-foot-11 tall man was one of the best high school recruits of all time.

Illinois native Eddy Curry led his high school team to a second-place finish at the 2001 state championship and became “Illinois Mr. Basketball” and also won the McDonald’s All-American MVP award.

This led to the 19-year-old declaring himself for the NBA draft, which could have been the worst mistake of his life. Arriving as the 4th pick in the draft behind 4 big men, Curry found himself picked up by the Chicago Bulls who had already drafted Tyson Chandler as their second pick.

Still, in his 4 years playing mostly behind Chandler, he averaged about 12 points, 55 rebounds, and one block per game. But then he found himself in a trade with the New York Knicks, which started most of the problems in his basketball career and most likely ended it.

Eddy Curry aka ‘Baby Shaq’ reveals the code Knicks players used to cheat on their wives/girlfriends

There were a lot of other things going on within the Knicks organization or any NBA franchise at the time, which led to “Baby Shaq” seeing his career end way too soon. she shouldn’t have.

His averages of 15.2 points, 5.8 rebounds and 0.6 blocks were decent considering his weight gain a few years after arriving in New York. Besides partying all the time and living life to the fullest like there’s no tomorrow, Curry’s teammates even had a proper way to have extramarital affairs.

“The stories in Chicago were funny, but they’re pretty innocuous,” Curry said. “Stories in New York? It could break someone’s house. I can say they had Philippe Chao and Mr. Chow. I think, it’s the same food and if you’re on that side of town you go here. If you are near the Financial District, you go to the other.

Eddy continued, “One night one of my teammates was there,” Curry said. “He said to me, ‘It’s cool tonight, but from now on, we’re taking our work to Philippe and your wife to Mr. Chow.’ I was at Philippe’s with my wife. He said to me, ‘It’s cool now, but from now on, if you’re ever going to come here, you call people and you tell them, so that they don’t come here with their girlfriends .’ It was the craziest thing for me. It’s really like a cheat code or method.

Many notable stars like Carmelo Anthony, Amar’e Stoudemire, Chauncey Billups, JR Smith, Jalen Rose, Matt Barnes and several others played for the Knicks during this time. Curry taking no name could spell trouble for those who have been with their partners for 10 to 15 years.
