CHICAGO (AP) - Former President Barack Obama - a huge basketball fan, officially the game’s First Fan during his eight years in office - made an unannounced appearance at an NBA Cares event during All-Star weekend in his hometown of Chicago with several of the league’s top rookies, second-year players and coaches. The event Friday was for volunteers to fill several backpacks with school supplies, and that work predictably stopped when Obama walked into the room.
