After His Presidency, Could Obama Become An NBA Team Owner?
It’s no secret that President Barack Obama loves to hoop. So much so that shortly after taking office, he had the White House tennis court adapted so it could be used for both tennis and basketball. But now, with his stay in the White House coming to a close in January, he’s drawing out a game plan of his next big moves. And according to press secretary Josh Earnest, becoming an NBA owner is a possible option, ESPN reports.
Yesterday (June 22), Earnest shared that “potentially… under the right circumstances,” Obama would pursue the opportunity of being a part of an ownership group for an NBA franchise.
The idea also came up in GQ‘s past November issue when Obama gushed that he’d “absolutely” want to join an NBA ownership group. “I have fantasized about being able to put together a team and how much fun that would be,” he said. “I think it’d be terrific.”
President-turned-NBA owner, what do you all think?
