Nice to see President Barack Obama at Game 2 of the NBA Finals between the defending champions Golden State Warriors and the hometown Toronto Raptors. Obama is a huge basketball fan and is friends with Warriors’ star Stephen Curry. In Febuary, Obama and Curry were featured at a seminar in Oakland for Obama’s My Brothers’ Keeper charity.
Tonight, though, it was just basketball. Obama came in with Raptors’ president president of basketball operations Masai Ujiri and sat in the stands next to NBA commissioner Adam Silver as the game began. Obama got a standing ovation and an “MVP” chant from the fans.
