In Which Bill Clinton Walks Into An NBA Lockout Press Conference

No, seriously: Bill Clinton walked through the scrum following the players' union's press conference on the looming NBA lockout deadline. He stopped to talk to fellow Arkansawyer Derek Fisher, the president of the union. He also, according to reporters tweeting from the scene, signed his new book for a few players, including Fisher, Blake Griffin and Ben Gordon. That book's title: Back to Work. For real.

Newsday's Alan Hahn captured the scene:

Howard Beck has the killer quote:

Bill Clinton just emerged, gave Derek Fisher a hug. told him "Now you know how I felt all those years." Players are in awe.

Can Bubba be the new commish, please?
