There’s a chance for this to happen!
According to The Washington Post, when White House press secretary Josh Earnest was asked about the president’s future plans, mentioning NBA, he did confirmed that Barack Obama already discussed this. “Potentially, if the opportunity arose, under the right circumstances,” Earnest added.
Of course, everybody is interested in the team the President would choose. Considering that the Chicago Bulls are his favorites, this could be the pick. On the other side, he confirmed that he plans to remain in Washington for at least two years, so his younger daughter can finish high school. Therefore, the Washington Wizards could be the team he plans to invest in.
“I have fantasized about being able to put together a team and how much fun that would be,” Obama said in an interview for GQ. “I think it’d be terrific.”
