It's Election Day. But also, ball is life.

For the ninth straight time (and eighth in office), Barack Obama played basketball on Election Day. According to The Washington Times, Obama left the White House before 8 a.m. in a motorcade to Fort McNair. He then balled out in a gym at the military base.

The president, clearly careful with his brand affiliations, rocked a Jordan Brand fleece with a 47 Brand White Sox hat and ASICS on his feet. He held a pair of Under Armour basketball shoes that appear to be a red and blue model of the Curry 2.5, based on logo placement. Obama and Stephen Curry have celebrated a Warriors title at the White House, played golf and been mentors together.


Obama voted in Illinois last month during his home state's early voting period. After campaigning one last time for fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton on Monday night in Philadelphia, Obama can spend Election Day on the hardwood and running the country.

This dude is about to own the Washington D.C. pickup basketball scene.
