President Barack Obama might have his eyes on becoming a part of an NBA franchise ownership group after he exits the White House.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said that Obama would “potentially, if the opportunity arose, under the right circumstances” be interested in the opportunity, the Washington Post reports, and that the President had even “discussed” being part of an NBA franchise ownership group.
Apparently, the dream of owning a basketball team has been long-held. Obama told Bill Simmons in an interview with GQ last year that he would “absolutely” want to be part-owner of an NBA team.
“I have fantasized about being able to put together a team and how much fun that would be,” Obama told Simmons. “I think it’d be terrific.”
