Obama rooting for LeBron


Social Share

WASHINGTON, DC – Include President Obama as another Chicago Bulls fan rooting for LeBron James to move to Chicago, Illinois.

“He doesn’t want to tamper,” senior adviser to the president – and former Bulls season-ticket holder – David Axelrod said.

“But as a Chicago fan, the president thinks LeBron would look great in a Bulls uniform.”

James, whose Cleveland Cavaliers were eliminated from the play-offs pn Thursday by the Boston Celtics, becomes a free agent on July 1.

Many believe he could be headed to the Bulls.

The president, a former United States senator from Illinois and state senator from Chicago, has never shied away from his sporting roots. 

He frequently wears his Chicago White Sox cap; has attended a Washington Wizards victory over the Bulls last season; and also hosted the Bulls on a tour of the White House. (AP)
