Found August 21, 2013 on That NBA Lottery Pick:
Back on Tuesday, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban made an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and provided a classic story about former USA president Bill Clinton. Mark recapped to Jay a day where he got to spent time with both Clinton and current USA president Barack Obama in Chicago: Jay Leno: You also saw President Clinton. Mark Cuban: Yeah, the day got ever weirder. I have lunch with President Obama, then I’m supposed to go to Chicago to give a speech at this thing called the Global Initiative. That’s when the NBA Finals are going on. I’m thinking, OK I’m going to get to Chicago … where am I going to watch the game? I get another e-mail … it’s like President Clinton is going to be at the hotel, would you like to watch the game with him? Let me just tell you, people think I’m crazy watching a game. President Clinton puts me to shame. Oh, my god. He’s crazy, until Hillary walked in. *** Mark Cuban says that Bill Clinton is a crazy NBA fan [Pro Basketball Talk] Bill Clinton image courtesy of Getty Images
