Tim Howard wants to play for the New York Knicks

Published Add your comment

Tim Howard is one of the most famous Americans right now after becoming a hero in the US for his outstanding displays at the FIFA World Cup for his nation.

It seems his name is popping up everywhere right now, and he made yet another showing this week.

Cheeky proposition

However, this time Tim Howard was making himself known via Twitter with an interesting but tongue in cheek proposition.

Tweeting the picture of himself above, Howard asked, "Knicks got any cap space left?"

Charity basketball

Although the proposition is made in a joking way, it would be cool to see Howard play alongside other Knicks stars in some kind of basketball charity match before the start of the NBA season.

During the World Cup he showed his great hands, and with a bit of help from some NBA teammates, it's likely he would thrive and give fans plenty of entertainment in such a situation.

World Cup

It's hard to mention Tim Howard without discussing his immense World Cup performances. So we might as well touch on them.

During the tournament, Howard made save after save on his way to becoming a cult hero amongst US fans. But unlike most cult hero's, Howard was actually the standout player for the American team throughout the tournament.

USA progressed through to the second round of the tournament after an impressive 2-1 win against Ghana, a 2-2 draw against Portugal, and a brave 1-0 defeat to Germany.

However, their second round match against Belgium proved to be the stumbling point for the US, with Belgium pulling through with a 2-1 win.

Howard was very impressive in the game though, and he gained rare reviews for his outstanding effort that included a World Cup record 16 incredible saves.

Drake recognition

This epic performance led to a brief and funny mention in the monologue of ESPN's award show, the EPSYs, this week.

Rapper Drake was the host of the awards show, and his monologue acknowledged the awesome performance from both the US team and Howard.

"Tim Howard can't be here tonight. At the moment he's out getting laid with any women he chooses," Drake quipped during the opening segment in the video below.
