Alan Hahn doesn’t think the Knicks will look to get out from underneath Eddy Curry’s weighty, crushing, contract for “failure to perform”, but that doesn’t mean they can’t. Here is some food for thought (hopefully Eddy won’t eat it before we’re done with it).
The following is from the NBA’s Uniform Player Contract:
(a) The Team may terminate this Contract upon written notice to the Player if the Player shall:
(i) at any time, fail, refuse, or neglect to conform his personal conduct to standards of good citizenship, good moral character (defined here to mean not engaging in acts of moral turpitude, whether or not such acts would constitute a crime), and good sportsmanship, to keep himself in first class physical condition, or to obey the Team’s training rules;
Is there any doubt that this could apply to Eddy?
