Tim Howard wants to help the Knicks with their defense

Friday July 18th, 2014

Does Carmelo Anthony need some supporting cast in New York? How does a World Cup star sound?

The photo comes via a Sky Sports promotion from 2013, when the Knicks played the Pistons in London.

With how good Howard is at blocking shots in soccer, maybe he's the next coming of Dikembe Mutombo. What do you think, could Howard hold his own on the hardwood?
