The Burr Ridge mansion that Eddy Curry lost in foreclosure was purchased by a south suburban dental surgeon.

Louis Korompilas, who has dental offices in Orland Park, Plainfield and Joliet, paid $3.1 million for the 18-room mansion, which Curry bought in 2006 for twice that figure when he played for the New York Knicks.

Korompilas closed on the house in late February, reports ChicagoBusiness.com. The home features nine bedroom suites, nine fireplaces, and an attached townhouse.

In 2007, armed-and-masked robbers broke into the home while Curry was there with friends and took cash and jewelry. They bound the 285-pound NBA player to a chair with duct tape.

Curry was a star basketball player at Thornwood High School in South Holland before he was drafted by the Bulls in 2001 and then traded to the Knicks in 2005. He played for the Dallas Mavericks in 2012-2013.

I am struggling to understand why this is news, why we should care and what it has to do with anything important.

It's not really news. The big news is that people are paying 3 million dollars for a house in Plainfield. Now that is news!!!!

The house is in BURR RIDGE, not Plainfield. Dr. Korompilas does business in Plainfield. As to why it is news, this is probably one of the biggest real estate sales so far this year and this is posted in the Real Estate section. I think it's interesting, but too bad Curry lost so much on his investment and was physically robbed there.
