The Presidential Pickup Game (Hoops pick-up games in the White House?)

Sharp elbows are already flying in the Obama camp. With Barack Obama the first avid basketball player to be elected president, political appointees, college coaches and NBA officials are all angling to get in on the game.
Mr. Obama — whose jump shot earned him the nickname Barry O’Bomber at Hawaii’s Punahou School — has hired a team of cabinet members and aides with serious basketball backgrounds. Many of them are planning for regular court time with the president, according to Mr. Obama’s transition press team.
