Barack Obama Rumors

ESPN NBA Insider Brian Windhorst said Wednesday on “Jalen & Jacoby” that Obama could join an ownership group whenever he wants. “There are multiple people that are competing that want Barack Obama to part of an ownership group,” he said. “If he wanted to be, he’d be one now. I think he probably wants to wait. I don’t think he wants to do anything publicly for a while. If he wants to be part of an ownership group, he could be by this afternoon. But it’s a matter of being in the right situation. He wants to make it just right.”

But he got the next best thing: A congratulatory text from the former POTUS. He told The Ringer’s Bill Simmons on a recent podcast that was the most surprising message he got after clinching the 2017 title: Durant: “Obama. He sent a text through somebody to get to me.” Simmons: “What’d he say?” Durant: “Congrats. Your defense was really good, which was random … and he told me to enjoy it, have some fun, typical stuff. I wasn’t expecting that.”
