Former President Barack Obama's joining NBA Africa as a strategic partner.
"One of the things I’ve always loved about basketball is the fact that it brings people together and empowers young people everywhere. I’m proud to join the team at @NBA_Africa and look forward to seeing the change we can create across the continent," Obama tweeted regarding joining NBA Africa.
Obama visited the village where his father grew up, and help open a new basketball court for the community. The President will partner his foundation with the NBA to work on creating opportunities that benefit multiple countries throughout Africa.
