Remember the funky ABA basketball? … Well, Team Obama tops it.

The American Basketball Association (ABA) was a professional basketball league founded in 1967.

To compete with the NBA, the league copped some top players (think Pistol Pete and Dr. J.) and introduced some game innovations, including the 3-point line and and a red, white and blue basketball.

Note: The ABA became defunct when it  merged with the NBA in 1976.

Well, Team Obama has gone retro and “personalized: the ball.

When you play some hoops at the White House you get to play with an Obama ball.

And, I bet that for a statistically significant donation, you can bring one home for the kids.
