In Life, As In The Nba

Via Truehoop, a few tidbits regarding the political contributions of NBA players. While Alonzo Mourning has given $1,000 to Hillary Clinton's campaign, and former players Travis Best and Charles Barkley gave to John Edwards in the past, the evident hoopster fave is Barack Obama, who's gotten money from Shane Battier, Baron Davis, Evan Eschmeyer (a former Howard Dean supporter), and, though not mentioned at Truehoop, Stephon Marbury.

Clinton, by contrast, "has the support of several NBA owners, including James Dolan, Paul Allen, the Maloofs, Jerry Reinsdorf, and the Simons."

Knock me over with a feather.
