Not all athletes end up flat broke after their playing days. Former New York Knicks teammates John Starks and Anthony Mason are opening a Custom Fuel Pizza shop in Harlem.
Reports Page Six:
Nineties Knicks stars John Starks and Anthony Mason are opening a restaurant together. We're told the pair has partnered on a New York outpost of Washington, DC, chain Custom Fuel Pizza, which allows customers to “design” their own pies by picking the crust and sauce as well as any toppings. The Big Apple location's scheduled to open in late January on Frederick Douglass Boulevard and West 123rd Street. CNN anchor Chris Cuomo and Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim are also investors in the eatery.
Wasn't this Kramer from Seinfeld's idea?
Starks and Mason aren't the only ex-Knicks of note with a business in NYC. Walt "Clyde" Frazier has an sports bar called Clyde Frazier's Wine and Dine on the far west side of midtown Manhattan.
