If Barack Obama Played Ball He’d Play for This NBA Team

It’s no secret that former president Barack Obama has a love for basketball. In fact, it was one of his most beloved past times during his tenure in the White House, and by the looks of clips that were previously posted online, the man has some serious skills!

And during a conversation with the San Antonio Current, Mr. Obama revealed what NBA team he’d sign with if he was to play professional ball.



During an appearance at the MIT Sports Analytics Conference, the former commander in chief was asked what NBA team he would opt to meet with if he was going to be a free agent in the summer.

And he chose the San Antonio Spurs.

“They’re smart, they’re well-run, they’re focused on team. They treat everybody in the organization with respect and that is the kind of organization that I want to be a part of,” Obama said. “So I would say over the last 15 years in basketball, San Antonio would be a great example of that.”

And there we have it.
