The greatest basketball player of all-time is taking a political position, according to the Associated Press.
The man who once said “Republicans buy sneakers too,” Michael Jordan, will raise money for President Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign.
Jordan will host a $20,000 per person fundraiser on August 22nd in New York City.
On the same day, a host of current and former NBA stars will participate in a fundraising shoot-around. Stars like Carmelo Anthony, Rajon Rondo and John Wall will participate in the event, to name a few.
The Obama campaign plans to raffle off tickets for grass roots supporters to attend the event.
