President Obama is known as an avid basketball fan, and he is excited to meet the Lakers for the second time.  The players may even get a chance to play some one-on-one with the President, which will certainly entertain the crowd.

The Lakers will meet with the President today at 3:00 P.M. EST/ 12:00 P.M. PST; the ceremony can be seen live on NBA TV and NBA.com.

After their meeting with President Obama, the Lakers will begin preparing for a match-up against John Wall and the Washington Wizards.
