President Obama loves the game of basketball, we all knew that already but from the sounds of things, he may want to get involved more in the sport once he moves out of the White House. There are reports that the POTUS would like to be part of an ownership group for an NBA team “under the right circumstances”.


White House press secretary Josh Earnest said that the president has already has discussions about being part of a group to buy a team but reiterated “potentially, under the right circumstances”.

Obama told GQ magazine last year that he “absolutely” would be interested. “I have fantasized about being able to put together a team and how much fun that would be, “I think it’d be terrific.”

Having a former president who is as cool as Obama would be pretty amazing to have as an owner of a team because everyone knows he truly loves the game and it would be more than just a financial thing for him.
