Maybe Kanye West's big break into the fashion industry is going to happen via the NBA. The 37-year-old rap star is being eyed by Wale, who is the new creative liaison for the Washington Wizards, to design the new uniforms for the professional basketball team.

Could West design the new Washington Wizards uniforms?

After stepping into the new role earlier this year, Wale, who is from Washington, spoke with the February music issue of ESPN The Magazine about what his future plans are, apart from including his own music in the team's intro video and making appearances at several events.

"I want to be a shot in the arm to DC basketball. My job is to provide a spark, at all costs," he said. "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."

Wale further explained that he hopes to bring a new energy and atmosphere to the Verizon Center when the Wizards play at home.

"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," he stated.

It is unclear if West will take up this opportunity, but as he was previously admitted several times before that the world of fashion ignores his designs and ideas, this could be the 'Black Skinhead' rapper's most realistic chance to become a designer.
