Obama to raise $1 million at fundraiser with NBA greats

President Obama enlisted some of the National Basketball Association’s biggest names to raise funds for the Democratic Party at a Miami fundraiser Monday night.

Calling himself a “pretty good point guard,” Obama and South Florida Democrats gathered at the home of former Miami Heat All-Star Alonzo Mourning where current Heat players Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade were spotted.

“I like you, but when you play the Bulls, I’m rooting against you,” Obama told the two men.

Neither the reporter in the room nor a White House spokesman spotted the Heat’s other new addition, LeBron James, but former Los Angeles Laker great Magic Johnson was in attendance.

    once again, he shows what he rather be doing.

    reminds me of the time Obama went to Germany, and because he could not have a photo op with wounded soldiers. so he choose not to visit the wounded and went to France and played basketball instead.

    seems nothing has changed.

    all he wants to do is play.
