DeBlasio challenges Obama in B-Ball
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.
