Report: President Obama, Los Angeles Lakers to hold community event in D.C.
While the Los Angeles Lakers are in Washington to play the Wizards on Tuesday, they plan to squeeze in a visit with President Barack Obama.
Rather than the usual White House ceremony honoring champions, though, Obama and the Lakers will participate in a community event in the D.C. area, a White House official told the Associated Press. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because a formal announcement is expected later today.
Obama, who recently took 12 stitches to his lip because of a hoops mishap, isn't expected to host a pickup game. Besides, he played with Kobe Bryant and other current and former NBA stars in August.
