Since the President-Elect is an avid basketball fan, the Harlem Globetrotters have created a red, white, and blue presidential Spalding ball especially for him.
The Inaugural Ball embossed with the presidential seal and the words Official Ball of the White House is currently en route to Obamas transition office.
Globetrotters forward Wildkat Edgerson hopes Obama uses the ball to practice for his official first presidential game at the White House.
He can imagine Obama working his skills on the court and says the prez would make the perfect Globetrotter because hes fit and charismatic.
Edgerson explains, Hes a lefty, which is always a good advantage in basketball because guys arent used to covering lefties. He also has no problem working a crowd!
He says the presidents Globetrotter nickname would be Mr. Yes You Can Obama, because hes so uplifting and positive, and hopes Obama joins the Globetrotters for a round of hoops someday.
