Ex-Lakers Player -- I'm Just Like Timberlake ... The Next Big Pop Star

EXCLUSIVE

His days with the Lakers are over ... but ex-NBA player Kareem Rush is still gunning to sell out the Staples Center ... as the next big superstar in pop music.  

The 34-year-old tells TMZ Sports he's focusing on a singing career -- "I'm a cross between Timberlake and Maxwell."

Rush has been working on his craft for years ... and even dropped a single back in 2010 ... before he officially retired. 



But now that he's done hoopin', Rush says he's putting everything he's got into music -- and plans to drop a brand new album later this month. 

In fact, Rush says he also has his sights set on getting another ex-NBA player to join him in the studio ... one of the biggest stars in the history of the sport. Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
