Former Knicks John Starks and Anthony Mason open a pizzeria in Harlem

Former New York Knicks stars, Anthony Mason and John Starks are teaming up once again. The two fan favorites of some of the 90s Knicks teams are opening a pizza eatery together.

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.

Starks and Mason aren't the only ex-Knicks players who have opened businesses in New York City. Walt "Clyde" Frazier owns a sports bar on the far west side of midtown Manhattan. Frazier was the point guard of the 1973 championship team.

The bar, which opened in March of 2012, is called Clyde Frazier's Wine and Dine.

It's nice to know that all former athletes don't squander their money and make bad investments.
