Michelle Obama Rumors

“The best thing for us is the opportunity that we’re all together to collectively kind of go over things that need to change socially,” Joe Harris said. “The other day we were on a call with WNBA players with Michelle Obama talking about the importance of voting. There were 100-plus people on that call, both NBA and WNBA players. Things of that nature that really are spearheading what is going to enact real change. Collectively we’re able to do more together for sure being down here.”
The former first lady addressed NBA and WNBA players about the importance of voting. Paul, president of the National Basketball Players Association, said it was the first time in his career that NBA and WNBA players came together for a joint call. “The more we encourage each other to vote,” Paul said, “not just every four years, but two years in your local elections, the more we do that, the more our voices will really be heard.”
Fighting for systemic change will continue to be a focus of the NBA’s restart. Paul was asked what success will look like when the games are over. “That’s a great question,” he said. “Coming down here, what we have an opportunity to do is use our collective voices, obviously to spread the messages, but we also get a chance to educate each other. Guys come to a meeting to discuss things, and two guys who never had a relationship figure out that they have a common interest in whatever it may be, whether it’s financial literacy, whether it’s police reform, whether it’s education, whether it’s HBCUs. Guys can start to build together.”

They were inspired by Michelle Obama’s IVF story in her memoir, Becoming. “What Michelle and Barack did was like another strong, powerful voice in the African-American community stepping up, educating, and having a responsibility in saying, ‘You’re not the only one,'” Wade said. “It was great for us and the reason we decided to talk about everything that we went through.

“The president is obviously very presidential, cool, comes in loud, talking to us about the team and how great our year was and his Cubs and Chicago and that sort of thing, but the first lady is like the star, right? She was so cool yesterday,” Love said. “Did the mannequin challenge with us, took us to the basketball court, made a joke about Kyrie (Irving) hanging on to the Larry O’Brien Trophy too long and she didn’t get to see it.

Carmelo Anthony doesn’t think Michelle Obama is a Knicks fan, but the First Lady apparently likes Melo’s style. After a photo of the pair hugging appeared on the front page of yesterday’s Post, Anthony revealed Michelle Obama whispered nice words of encouragement to him in the embrace. “She told me to continue being happy and keep smiling,’’ said Anthony, who is known being carefree on the court. “She’s a Melo fan.’’
