Maynor joins Durant for pick-up game with President Obama

<a href=""><img src="" alt="" title="MaynorPres" width="400" height="450" class="alignleft size-full wp-image-4273" /></a>Eric Maynor has played on some talented teams at VCU and in the NBA, but the former VCU point guard recently had the chance to play on perhaps his most star studded roster, a group consisting of himself, OKC Thunder teammate Kevin Durant, none other than the President of the United States, Barack Obama.

Durant received the invite after tweeting "always next year" about his snub for a previous game this August that included Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Paul.

KD invited Maynor and fellow Thunder teammate James Harden to join in on a matchup that included the President and several White House staffers.

Via NewsOK:

<blockquote>"It was weird because when he called me he just was like, 'Yo, what's your social security number?'" Maynor remembered.

"I was like, 'Man, what you need my social for?' And he said, 'We're going to the White House tomorrow.'"

Durant and Maynor teamed up with Obama.

Harden was matched up against the president, with other White House staffers filling out the teams. They played four or five games of full court five-on-five, according to Maynor, and each team won their share.</blockquote>
