The way I see it, my playing basketball is a matter of national security that could help change the world.

That’s what I tell my wife every time I go to the gym.

Here’s my logic.

This week I had the great honor and privilege of being mentioned in a major Sports Illustrated article.

Not just merely mentioned, but mentioned in such a way (by writer Alexander Wolff) that I come across as an Obama-basketball pundit.

This means I’m one basket closer to something I really want to do, namely, play basketball with Barack Obama at the White House on the new basketball court.

I’ve been working on my game lately, inspired by the president-elect. If he can do it, I can do it. And this gives me much more of a reason to play ball than the lame and boring one I’d been using, that is, to stay in shape.

The way I see it, if president-elect Obama plays basketball in order to keep a clear and level head during his decision making and strategic thinking, then his playing hoops becomes a matter of national security.

Therefore, the way I see it, my getting invited to play basketball with Obama at the White House could help change the world.

Isn’t that just, like, so obvious?
