(Newser) – From the Oval Office to the locker room? It's a possibility for Barack Obama, according to White House press secretary Josh Earnest. He said Wednesday that Obama has "discussed" becoming a part-owner of an NBA team and would be interested "potentially ... under the right circumstances," reports ESPN. In October, Obama told GQ that he's "fantasized about being able to put together a team and how much fun that would be." The Bulls and Wizards are two possibilities given Obama's love for Chicago and his plans to stay in Washington.
