When President Barack Obama arrived in Phoenix on Tuesday, Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon gave him what may be his most unique gift in the short time he has been president: a shoe signed by Shaquille O’Neal.
Gordon’s son, Jake, held the shoe while he was waiting for Obama to arrive and the shoe covered his entire chest. When the President exited the plane, he was greeted by several people and was given the shoe. According to HuffingtonPost.com, Obama grinned as he put the Shaq shoe next to his own. Since he is such a big basketball fan, maybe the next gift he should receive when he comes to Arizona is a chance to suit up and practice with the Suns.
