Obama and Michael Jordan co-host the Obama Classic fundraising dinner in NYC tonight but campaign says neither will play in skills camp— David Nakamura (@DavidNakamura) August 22, 2012
Carmelo Anthony, Patrick Ewing, Sheryl Swoopes, Kyrie Irving and Alonzo Mourning, among other players, are expected to participate in the "skills camp" fundraiser. According to ABC News, dinner is $20,000. Skills camp is $5,000. An autograph is $250.
NBA players and coaches in general favor Obama — but owners prefer Mitt Romney, and they give more money.
