Harlem Globetrotters Make B-Ball For Obama

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Thanks to the Harlem Globetrotters, Barack Obama will be ballin’ at the White House!

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 Obama’s transition office.

Globetrotter’s 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 he’s fit and charismatic.

Edgerson explains, “He’s a lefty, which is always a good advantage in basketball because guys aren’t used to covering lefties. He also has no problem working a crowd!”

He says the president’s Globetrotter nickname would be “Mr. Yes You Can” Obama, because he’s so uplifting and positive, and hopes Obama joins the Globetrotters for a round of hoops someday.
