The New York Knicks are on the brink of desperation, if they’re not there already, and now apparently want the most prestigious professional sports franchise in the world to help out New York City.

Knicks president Donnie Walsh wants all New Yorkers to pitch in on the ‘LeBron Project’ , but Derek Jeter has four helpful words of advice: “It wouldn’t make sense.”

There has also been much speculation that Jay-Z, hip-hop star and close friend of James, would try and pressure him into signing with the New Jersey Nets, of which he is part-owner. According to the rap mogul however, “That’s his decision.”

James is known as a Yankees fan and is also friends with pitcher CC Sabathia. He has also been seen sporting Dr. Dre’s new headphones, ironically enough donning a Red Sox logo.

I don’t know exactly when this picture was taken, but I’m liking the Mickael Pietrus fro. Hopefully this becomes a NBA trend.
