Remember back in October, the Wizards hired Wale to be their “Creative Liaison” for the 2014-15 NBA season. The thought was that he could help with everything from social media promotions to giveaways during home games. And it sounds like he might even help the team land some new uniforms designed by none other than Kanye West.
For the new issue of ESPN The Magazine, Wale spoke about his relationship with the Wizards and talked specifically about his current role with the team.
“I want to be a shot in the arm to DC basketball,” he said. “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 [Wall], Otto [Porter], Marcin [Gortat]—and create what Kemp and Payton had, what LeBron and D-Wade had. That’s the vibe I want.”
