Most diehard basketball fans probably have fantasies of taking the court with their favorite pro players in a pick-up game of hoops. But that fantasy more than likely remains a bitter dream, unless of course you’re the president of the United States.

President Obama, who celebrated his 49th birthday on Aug. 4, used last Sunday to turn his hoops dream into a reality, inviting several basketball stars to Fort McNair for a friendly game of five-on-five. Media members were restricted from watching the game, but White House sources told the Washington Post the players included NBA superstars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Derrick Rose, and basketball legends Magic Johnson and Bill Russell, among others. The Post also said Kobe Bryant attended the game, but did not play.

No word was released on how the 6-foot-2-inch tall president performed against NBA talent as his aides kept a tight lip on the details. We’ll just have to catch up with the players later and ask them for a skill evaluation.

Beside Obama’s personal desire, the pickup games were played in purpose of entertaining wounded war veterans and participants of a White House mentoring program. After sweating out on the court, the president and players returned to the White House for a cookout on the South Lawn. According to the Post, White House aides say the cookout featured shrimp fished out from the Gulf of Mexico.
