The NBA Champs from last season, the Dallas Mavericks, will get to go the White House and meet the President today, but Mav guard Delonte West will not get a chance to shake hands with President Barack Obama, because he won’t be making the trip with his NBA Champion teammtes…..

from www.yahoo.com and YAHOO!Sports…….
Dwain Price of the Fort-Worth Star-Telegram quoted Delonte West following Saturday night’s Mavericks win:

“I’m banned from going to the White House, so I’m not going to make it,” West said after the 96-81 win over the New Orleans Hornets. “But I’m going home to D.C., I’m just not allowed to go to the White House. That’s what happens when you make bad decisions in your life. You can’t go to the White House.”

I’ve been there 100 times in my lifetime,” said West, who was born in D.C. “I live right around the corner. I live in D.C. It’s going to be ashamed the President isn’t going to get a chance to meet me. I’m the president of my house.”

West, who had a high profile arrest over two years ago while under the influence of prescribed medication, is “banned” (to use his words) from stepping foot in the White House after the President’s security team ran a routine background check on the guard.
