U.S. World Cup goaltender Tim Howard wants to take his game from the pitch to the court and if you believe the international soccer star, he's ready to help the Knicks.
Howard wore a Knicks jersey and offered his athletic skills to the team via Twitter as Phil Jackson tries to rebuild the team with re-signed Carmelo Anthony and new coach Derek Fisher.
And if any team could use some serious D, it's the Madison Square Garden boys.

And it's not just a hoops dream.
Howard was a standout New Jersey high school basketball player and has a sort of six degrees of separation connection to NBA experience.
The soccer star used to match up against Jay Williams, a blue-chipper for a rival high school before he went on to play at Duke and in the NBA.
