President Obama Honors NBA’s Dallas Mavericks At White House

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama is beginning the week by hosting the NBA world champion Dallas Mavericks at the White House.

Obama, who roots regularly for the Chicago Bulls in his adopted home town, will congratulate the Mavericks for winning the 2011 championship title. He also will recognize the team’s support for the men and women of the U.S. military forces.

Obama’s East Room tribute for the Mavericks follows a private meeting he’ll have earlier in the day with his senior advisers at the White House.

In the evening, the president will attend a campaign event in the nation’s capital.
