Please sign this petition to get Barack Obama in the 2017 NBA All-Star celebrity game

The NBA All-Star celebrity game rosters are LOADED!

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.

It reads:

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.

Do your part for history. Sign the petition.
