Vince Carter held an Obama 2012 fundraiser at his mansion, raising more than $2 million for the President’s reelection campaign. Some of the NBA’s biggest personalities were in attendance, including David Stern, Mark Cuban, Chris Paul, Magic Johnson and Alonzo Mourning.
The president said the following:
“It’s a huge treat for me ever since he’s been playing for the Tar Heels. I know Reggie Love’s not here so I can praise the Tar Heels,” he said. “I see a lot of other friends in the room. You know, Alonzo and Tracy have been there every time I’ve come to Florida…. Magic and Cookie, wherever I go in California, they’re there for us. Chris is helping out our fitness council and allowed me to cross over on him when we played during my birthday. He insists he could have stolen the ball at any time.”
The key to holding such a large event is clearly in the details.
The electronic scoreboard reads 20:12, with the home and guest scores at 44. The shot clock says it’s period 2.
