Fabolous Wants Dwight Howard for Knicks

Like Jay-Z before him, Brooklyn native, Fabolous, is trying to use his influence in the hip-hop world to woo some of basketball’s biggest talents to his hometown team.

According to ESPN, Fab wants to sign Orlando Magic’s Dwight Howard to the New York Knicks when he becomes a free agent in 2012, much like when Jay tried to woo LeBron James last year to the New Jersey Nets, of which he is part owner.

“I’d want [Howard] to join us,” Fab told ESPN. “He, along with another possible free agent, Chris Paul, would be the final pieces of the puzzle.”

While Loso may not have enough cash to sit on the Knicks’ board of directors, he isn’t letting that stop him from repping his team. “Jay-Z has lots of money, Fab continued. “He sells the city differently than I’d do. I think his little tour of the area would be different than mine.”

Neither Howard nor Paul have yet to respond to the comments as of press time. —Nick Haycock

    So Fab wants the Knicks to have a team with CP3, Howard, Amare, and Melo? LMAO. Of course that’s the final piece of the puzzle. Does this fool really believe that could happen? I always thought Fab was kind of slow in the noggin, but DAMN. Oh yeah, how about Miami getting Derrick Rose and Andrew Bynum? LMAO.

  • Huh?

    Why are you doing a free agents job for free? What are you gona get out of it? Are you he owner of the knicks. Do you hold some stake to the team? Is there some sorta financial benefit to you or do you just want to feel happy if they make the playoff. Owners and team management love people like you. Do their jobs for them. How about you and Jay-Z and some othr rappers use your money and influence to work on geting an NBA expansion team. You have no claim to the knicks except they hold our hometown’s city name.

    u guys are slow. Fab could be getting a kick back besides tickets and press. He stands a chance to make more money if they all come. Its not a far gone conclusion. Miami has the big 3, The celts, the lakers, the hawks, the bulls. Dwight probably will head WEST to the lakers cause he wanna be like Shaq. MMHm so that would be Kobe, Gasol, Bynum, Howard and.. ya they will get another pg to replace Fisher. So, its not a far gone conclusion.

    • Nhh

      IMO kobes gonna be on his way out in 2012. Still producing but probably his second to last season

    As far as Howard, no way he’d go to the Knicks, what team needs 3 big ball hogs… LMAO.. I guarentee he’d go to the Nets before the Knicks
