Even President Obama has an idea where LeBron James should play.
The former Senator from Illinois said through a spokesman that James should join Obama's hometown Chicago Bulls.
"He doesn't want to tamper," senior adviser to the president -- and former Bulls season-ticket holder -- David Axelrod told ESPN.com. "But as a Chicago fan, the president thinks LeBron would look great in a Bulls uniform."
Obama, an avid pickup basketball player, is a diehard White Sox fan and mentioned the Chicago team several times when the Yankees visited the White House last month.
The report says "Obama also filmed a video tribute to Johnny 'Red' Kerr for the beloved Bulls announcer's retirement ceremony in February of 2009."
