The NBA All-Star celebrity game rosters are LOADED!
.@POTUS. The @NBA Celebrity All-Star Game. MAKE IT HAPPEN, AMERICA https://t.co/1Kb0ge5s0L— SB Nation (@SBNation) January 14, 2016
But! We noticed a notable omission and arrived at an immediate solution.
Such, by the grace of basketball and democracy enthusiast Tom Ziller, a petition was born.
Please sign my https://t.co/WF4zXZ5xo6 petition to lobby @POTUS to play in the 2017 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game: https://t.co/HEaqyJuO7r— Tom Ziller (@teamziller) January 14, 2016
The 2017 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game will be held on February 17, 2017 in Charlotte, North Carolina. As of the publishing of this petition, former Education Secretary Arne Duncan holds the record for most points scored in a Celebrity Game with 20.
With all due respect, this is a soft record. President Obama will have a month out of office to train for the game, and there's no question he can destroy Mr. Duncan's record and the will of the opposing team.
This is your chance to finally make history, Mr. Obama. Seize it.
