Russell Westbrook -- I'd Play For Obama ... He'd Be A Great NBA Owner (VIDEO) https://t.co/o4vx9o1ZL8

White House press secretary Josh Earnest recently revealed President Barack Obama has "discussed" the possibility of NBA ownership.

On Wednesday, Greg Jaffe of the Washington Post wrote, "The proclamation came with a lot of caveats: 'potentially, if the opportunity arose, under the right circumstances.'" 

Still, it's a wildly interesting prospect—a former U.S. president joining a professional sports ownership group? What would the players think? 

TMZ posed the question to Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, who replied, "Who wouldn't want to play for the president?" 

He had no response to "Where do you think KD's going to sign?" though.

Bummer.
