President Obama assembled his own little dream team for hoops on Sunday. The event was part late birthday celebration and part showcase for wounded warriors in the White House mentoring project.

Obama’s guest list included NBA greats, past and present. Maya Moore of the UConn Huskies, was also invited to partake as a token female. The commander-in-chief marked his 49th birthday in Chicago on Wednesday at a dinner and kept the celebration going at the White House. He only has 2 years left in the White House, so he figured he’d do it real big.

Obama’s Dream Team included:

  • Shane Battier
  • Carmelo Anthony
  • Chauncey Billups
  • Earvin “Magic” Johnson
  • Kobe Bryant (not playing)
  • Pau Gasol
  • Derek Fisher
  • Grant Hill
  • LeBron James
  • Dwyane Wade
  • Maya Moore
  • Alonzo Mourning
  • Joakim Noah
  • Derrick Rose
  • Bill Russell
  • Etan Thomas
  • David West
  • Chris Paul
