President Obama calls NBA greats to raise money for his campaign.
Since there’s no real basketball season, President Obama is recruiting some of the NBA’s top players to help raise reelection funds.
According to EURweb, Obama has tapped Carmelo Anthony, Ray Allen, Chris Bosh, Dwight Howard and many more for a friendly basketball game to raise money for the Obama Victory Fund. That’s right! He’s bringing the NBA’s finest together to raise money for his campaign, and tickets aren’t cheap either. Tickets start $200 and go all the way up an astounding $5,000 to sit courtside.
The showdown is set to take place in Washington, D.C., but no official date has been set.
Hopefully, President Obama will get out there and play a little ball — we’d love to see him dunk on some of these players.
