Wale Recruits Kanye West To Design New Wizards Uniforms
The Washington Wizards have recruited Wale as the NBA team’s new “creative liaison.” The rapper spoke to ESPN to about what his role may entail, and he says one thing he may do is enlist Kanye West to design new jerseys for the team to provide a little “spark.”
“I want to be a shot in the arm to DC basketball. My job is to provide a spark, at all costs. I’m not going to do anything corny, but I’m talking to Kanye about designing new uniforms. I want to see the phone booth rocking every time I come here. I want to create the “Lake Show,” create what the Bulls had. I want to take the personality of our stars — John, Otto, Marcin — and create what Kemp and Payton had, what LeBron and D-Wade had. That’s the vibe I want.”
We’ll see if this ever comes to fruition, but already sounds like he’s doing more for the team than Drake is for the Raptors.
