The most star-studded basketball game in recent memory didn’t take place on an NBA court. Even weirder? In a game featuring LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson and Carmelo Anthony, the most famous player had never made it past the bench on his high school basketball team. That’s because this game was hosted by President Barack Obama for his 49th birthday at Fort McNair, a few minutes from the White House. Reporters were barred from the gym, as the 44th President of the United States “just wanted to play.” #OBAMABALL emerged from that secretive game, signed by Obama, LeBron, Kobe, Magic and Carmelo.
“One of the perks of being president is, you can invite people to the White House and they show up.”— Barack Obama / After His 49th Birthday Game | August 2010
Obama’s varsity basketball team at Hawaii’s Punahou School wins the state championship.
According to a former coach: “He would carry his books in one hand and his ball in the other… He lived across the street from school and before classes he’d shoot baskets on the outside courts, then at lunch he’d shoot more baskets, then I’d have him for three hours, then he’d go home, eat supper and then be outside again shooting baskets.”
During the DNC convention, Obama delivers a speech in which he jokes: “I’m LeBron, baby. I can play on this level. I got some game.”
The state of Illinois elects Obama to the U.S. Senate.
Obama becomes the 44th U.S. President. Shortly after, he adapts the White House tennis court so it can be used for both tennis and basketball.
President Obama assembles a handful of basketball players to play a pickup game for his 49th birthday. Present at the game was Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Magic Johnson and Carmelo Anthony, in addition to Dwyane Wade, Derrick Rose, Bill Russell and Maya Moore. #OBAMABALL is signed.
President Obama writes in his memoir, A Promised Land, that he briefly coached his daughter Sasha’s basketball team before resigning due to the objections of other parents.
Rally enters into an agreement to acquire #OBAMABALL and offer it on the Rally platform.
