Video: Barack Obama Playing Basketball With Soldiers

  • Glenn Davis

There’s not much information about the video below, uploaded earlier today by Buzzfeed’s Andrew Kaczynski, except that it’s from 2006 and it features (then-senator) Barack Obama apparently playing “with some US Army soldier[s].” But really, isn’t that all the information you need? Obama, of course, is a well-known basketball junkie, but footage of him playing the game – though it’s out there – is relatively rare. As far as we can tell, the clip below represents the longest uninterrupted footage of him playing in existence. So check it out, break down the president’s game, and wonder why he always goes with those long pants when he plays.
