Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo are teaming up with Michael Jordan to help President Obama raise some campaign cash:
The Hall of Famer will headline a celebrity basketball game on Aug. 22 in New York that will double as a fund-raiser for President Obama, the Obama campaign said Tuesday.
Other high-profile participants in the Obama Classic will include Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce of the Boston Celtics, Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks, and WNBA stars Sheryl Swoopes and Dawn Staley.
Former stars Alonzo Mourning and Patrick Ewing, who learned to play basketball in the parks and leagues of Cambridge, will also be part of the event.
Looks like Rajon Rondo isn’t holding a grudge against the President for those comments about his jump shooting.
