President Obama, Michael Jordan and a group of past and present NBA stars will appear together on a New York City basketball court Aug. 22 for the "Obama Classic," a fundraiser and grassroots sweepstakes for the president’s re-election campaign.

A star-studded, pro-Obama exhibition game will feature Carmelo Anthony, Patrick Ewing, Sheryl Swoopes, Kyrie Irving, Alonzo Mourning, among other players, the campaign said in an email to supporters.
