President Obama has won at least one important matchup today, winning a pickup basketball game on the morning of Election Day. The President played with former Chicago Bulls players Scottie Pippen and Randy Brown, winning by 20-points.
The pickup game has become an Election Day tradition, which started during the 2007 Iowa Caucus with a then underdog Obama. This time playing with former NBA Champions, the President’s brother-in-law and Oregon State basketball coach Craig Robinson, Education Secretary Arne Duncan, White House Assistant Chef Sam Kass, Reggie Love, Mike Ramos and Marty Nesbitt.
