DeBlasio challenges Obama in B-Ball

June 5, 2014 12:48 pm

While the nation awaits the NBA championship series to commence, a New Yorker with an Instagram

account issued a challenge that was heard from Gracie Mansion to the White House. Straphanger Alvin

Javier happened to catch the Mayor Bill de Blasio along with fellow commuters and recorded His Honor

on the social media site throwing down the gauntlet.

“So I get on the J train, I’m heading downtown and guess who I happen to see here? My mayor! I think

he can beat Obama. This is his official challenge. Obama, my mayor is going to play you one-on-one at

ball. Do you accept?” Javier said.

The mayor thought that the young man had come up with a great thought and gave credit.

“Alvin, now that you have brought up this idea, I think it’s a great idea,” he said.

De Blasio may have bitten off more than he can chew as we all know the President is an avid baller

playing with the likes of professionals such as Chris Duhon. Age wouldn’t be much of a factor but de

Blasio does have a height advantage over the president.
