There's a petition to get Obama into NBA All-Star Game

It's no secret President Obama is a basketball fan.

This year's NBA All-Star Celebrity Game roster in Toronto has been set. But, now, there is a petition get the president into next year's game in Charlotte - after he leaves office.

The petition on the White House website reads:

The 2017 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game will be held on February 17, 2017 in Charlotte, North Carolina. As of the publishing of this petition, former Education Secretary Arne Duncan holds the record for most points scored in a Celebrity Game with 20.

With all due respect, this is a soft record. President Obama will have a month out of office to train for the game, and there's no question he can destroy Mr. Duncan's record and the will of the opposing team.

This is your chance to finally make history, Mr. Obama. Seize it.
