Obama Plays Basketball… His Face Is On The Basketball

By | April 9, 2012

If you thought the president was going to have trouble making money when he left the White House, then you haven’t seen jack.  Or you haven’t seen this basketball.  At least now the First Lady knows what to get him for his birthday.  Customized golf balls.

From ABC.com:

Using a special basketball festooned with his own image, President Obama shot some hoop today with former NBA players, Harlem Globetrotters and kids attending the White House Easter Egg Hunt.

The “Shoot for Strength” activity took place on the White House basketball court, where Daryll “Chocolate Thunder” Dawkins and legendary shooting guard Mitch Richmond joined Globetrotters’ Herb Lang, Fatima Maddox, Jacob Tucker and Wun Versher to conduct drills with kids. The drill consisted of the kids doing pushups every time the professional players or President Obama scored.

In his first three shots he went 0 for 3. He missed seven shots before sinking his first.

The kids switched with the shooters, and the president dropped to the ground to do some pushups.

“Somebody saw me cheating on my pushups,” the president joked.

He then moved on to tennis with Chris Evert. The tennis balls did not have his image on them.

“Four more years,” one woman said as he left the court.

“With your help,” he said.
