The Obamas Take in U.S.A. Basketball -- PICTURES

July 17, 2012

On Monday, July 16, the Obama and Biden families took some time to watch the U.S. men's national basketball team take on Brazil in a pre-Olympic exhibition at a packed Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.  

The exhibition was highlighted by flashy dunks, some sloppy play, and, of course, a presidential Kiss Cam.
