CHICAGO -- President Obama will be in Chicago Tuesday, and is expected to help the Bulls kick off their regular season against the Cavaliers at the United Center.
While there has been no official confirmation, the Chicago Tribune reports that security at the UC for the Cavs' morning shoot-around was tight.
In an interview with the Tribune, Cavs' star Lebron James said it would be an "honor" to be part of a game that Obama would attend watch.
"I believe our league is the greatest league that we have in the world," James continued. "We’ve got the greatest athletes and the greatest fans. For the President of the United States to grace Opening night here in Chicago I’m just honored and it’s something I can tell my kids a long, long time from now. Actually to be able to have the film and showing them, you know kids don’t believe you sometimes, to be able to show them the film that the President of the United States was at a ball game that I played in is pretty cool.”
Obama is giving a speech Tuesday at the annual conference for the International Association of Chiefs of Police at McCormick Place and is expected to stay in Chicago overnight.
