Michelle Obama Rumors
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.”

Barack and Michelle Obama may soon become Kennedy adjacent because we’ve learned they’re in escrow for a remarkable, mega-expensive, Martha’s Vineyard estate. Multiple island sources tell us the Obamas are in escrow for the estate owned by Boston Celtics owner, Wyc Grousbeck. The former Prez and First Lady have been renting the house this summer and loved it so much, we’ve learned they made an offer. The property is listed at $14,850,000. Our sources say they’re paying less, but we don’t know how much.
Barack and Michelle Obama are reportedly buying a Martha’s Vineyard mansion [belonging to Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck]. The listing agent for the property declined comment when reached by the Globe. A Celtics representative also declined comment; a spokesperson for Obama could not immediately be reached.
