From a White House pool report Tuesday on Vice President Joe Biden's evening celebration:

... Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, hosted a reception Tuesday night at the Naval Observatory in honor of African-American History Month. The vice president's office was expecting about 150 people, and spotted in the crowd were: Michigan Rep. John Conyers, Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson, Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx, Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson ("I told the president, next game, I've got him," Biden said of the former NBA star, "I may be a white boy, but I can jump").

Johnson formerly played point guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Phoenix Suns.
