Taylor Swift "Dunks" With NY Knicks, Gets Beers With Karlie Kloss at Game

Taylor Swift hung out with a bunch of players this week, only this time, they weren't evil males who had broken her heart.

The 24-year-old Pennsylvania-born New York resident, who is known for singing about her ex-boyfriends, hung out with New York Knicks power forward Amar'e Stoudemire and fellow star Carmelo Anthony at one of the NBA team's practice sessions earlier this week. She recently posted a YouTube video of herself "dunking" a basketball...with Stoudemire's help. The singer is promoting her new album 1989, which was released on Monday and contains the singles "Shake it Off" and "Welcome to New York."

"This week, @Amareisreal helped me make my first and probably last layup," tweeted Swift, who wore a jersey with the number 13 (the singer's birthdate is Dec. 13, 1989).

Stoudemire tweeted a photo of the three on Tuesday, saying, "Representing NY. We're all #NYMade. @taylorswift13 @carmeloanthony @nyknicks."

Swift and BFF and Victoria's Secret model Karlie Kloss, 22, attended Wednesday's game, the 2014-15 season opener for the Knicks and the Chicago Bulls, at Madison Square Garden in New York City.  A video of Swift singing "Shake it Off" with Stoudemire was screened on the Jumbotron.

She and Kloss sat courtside and cheered on the New York team. They were photographed with cups of beer and bottles of Diet Coke (Swift is a spokesmodel for the brand).

 "Karlie and I had the time of our lives at the Knicks game tonight," Swift said on her Instagram page.

The Bulls defeated the Knicks, 104 - 80.

Swift was up bright and early to perform at a gig in New York City's Times Square for Good Morning America, as she continues promoting 1989. More than 600,000 copies of the album, the former country star's first all-pop record, have already been sold and the total could reach 1.2 million by the end of its first week, according to Billboard. The outlet reported that her previous album, Red, sold 1.21 million copies.
