The Obama campaign announced its latest fundraising contest on Tuesday: a chance to play basketball with Michael Jordan and other legends.

"Imagine shooting hoops with Carmelo Anthony, Patrick Ewing, Sheryl Swoopes, Kyrie Irving, and Alonzo Mourning," Marlon Marshall, the campaign's Deputy National Field Director, wrote in an e-mail to supporters. "Oh, and President Obama and Michael Jordan will be there, too."

 

Obama, himself a well-known basketball fan, has run fundraising contests throughout the year that offer supporters the chance to attend dinners and parties -- including one at actor George Clooney's house earlier this year -- for a minimum $3 donation.
