Fabolous is hoping to attract two more NBA stars, Dwight Howard and Chris Paul, to the New York Knicks.
With Carmelo Anthony, Chauncey Billups and Amar’e Stoudemire on their roster, the Knicks are working on a dream team of their own. Fab told ESPN that the Knicks shouldn’t stop there, and he wants to convince Dwight Howard, of the Orlando Magic, to rock the orange and blue for New York.
“I’d want him to join us,” Fab said. “He, along with Chris Paul, would be the final pieces of the puzzle. We’d welcome them with open arms. They wouldn’t even need to wipe their feet at the door.”
Dwight becomes a free agent next year, so Fab attended the Knicks-Magic game on March 23 to start the recruitment process a little early.
Despite having a few stars on the bench, the Knicks have still had their fair share of losses since Carmelo and Amar’e joined the team. Fab’s not knocking the job the NBA stars have done so far, but he says Dwight and Chris could push their game to a whole new level.
“We really are a promising team with Anthony, Amar’e Stoudemire and even Chauncey Billups. We’re getting our chemistry together,” Fabolous said. “With the addition of Howard and Paul, we’d be unstoppable.”
And the rapper doesn’t mind throwing in a little background music to get his players ready for their next matchup.”I do love when they play my song ‘You Be Killin Em’ at the Knicks games,” he admits. “That really pumps them up to play ball. We just need some more great players!”
