From Wikipedia. Conspiracy anyone???

Eric Holder (Attorney General)

"He went on to attend Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan and attended Columbia University, where he played freshman basketball and was co-captain of his team and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in American history in 1973."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Holder

Susan Rice (Ambassador to the UN)

"She played point guard in basketball and directed the offense, acquiring the nickname "Spo," short for "Sportin'"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_Rice

James Jones (National Security Advisor)

"Jones, who is six feet four inches (1.93 m) tall, played forward on the Georgetown Hoyas men's basketball team"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_L._Jones

Arne Duncan (Secretary of Education)

From 1987 to 1991, Duncan played professional basketball in Australia with the Eastside Spectres of the NBL, and while there worked with children who were wards of the state.

8. Oh noes! I see a disturbing pattern here.
It is clear Obama's hidden agenda it to make basketball the only official sport of the USA, outlawing football, baseball, soccer and others. ;-)
