    I did not recall that his brother was killed. That is tragic and would affect anyone. The same as with Eddie Curry's situation and his daughter being killed. These sort of jarring, terrible, violent events are too scaring to even imagine. To have to go through the public scrutiny as an NBA player while dealing with such events does not seem fair.

    After learning about Eddie's daughter I will never berate him again. As a father, it is impossible to imagine the hurt and pain he has and continues to go through.

    Q-Rich and Eddie both had natural talent and ability coming into the league. They never got to realize their potential because of the off court tragedies in their family.

    I feel you with the sentiment, and I agree those issues are very hard to deal with and to go to your employment and cope.

    But let's not pretend like Eddy and Q were just balling for us prior to these situations happening.

    Q really pissed me off because he got into game shape literally the year after us.

    Thumbs down Isiah traded for teams "CANCER-Players" having a Punk coaching-staff

    The Phoenix Suns organization over-paid "Penny-Marbury-Q.Richardson"
    double & tripple the $$$ money their talent were worth. All three contracts
    were not suppose to be traded untill their final contract season (Death
    Penalty for Isiah Thomas), all three were "Red-Flag-Players" before
    coming to the Knicks.
    Q.Richardson was the worst of the three overpaid players, plus Q.Brick
    wasnt worth 20% of what we got from Kurt Thomas consistent performance.
    The Knicks 2003-4 tandem frontcourt bigmen "Mutombo & Kurt Thomas"
    gave the Knicks a playoff team in the East.....Isiah Thomas trading the
    pair of bigmen for two selfish dum decision-making "Crawful & Q.Brick"
    made Knicks-fans forget how useless Marbury & Penny were on the Knicks.

    u put up a sympathetic approach at looking at Q.Rich and Curry situation.
    However, before these players tragic-family situation they been in the
    NBA for 5 seasons, and never took their job in the NBA serious to be
    given much sympathy by fans and co-workers.
    I do give Eddy Curry the sympathy of a young father b/c he was
    shuffled out of HS into a disray unorganize Chicago Bulls team without
    any type of mentor to guide him in the biggest-change in life (Broke-slums
    to millionair). The Knicks did give Curry a decent mentor in assistant
    coach Mark Aquire to guide Curry on and off the court.
    When the Knicks fired Mark Aquire it was down-hill for Eddy Curry from
    that day on.
    Q.Richardson lockerroom attitude on the Clippers gave Maggette his job.
    One season with the Phoenix Suns Q.Richardson lockerroom attitude had
    the Suns give away their first round pick to trade Q.Rich....no sympathy!
