Barack Obama is a huge fan of basketball and the yearly visits of the champions to the White House have been some of the most entertaining aspects of his reign as the President of the United States of America.

And it seems it runs in the family, well technically the first lady's family, as her brother Craig Robinson has been appointed as the vice president of player and organisational development at the Milwaukee Bucks.

The former Oregon State head coach will assume the role with the primary aim of developing a programme that allows players to grow both personally and professionally.

"Craig has an impressive set of qualifications that we feel will be beneficial to our players and our entire organisation," Bucks general manager John Hammond said. "We couldn't be more excited to welcome him to the Bucks family."

As a man who has never shied away from his admiration of Chicago basketball teams, he will surely have a vested interested in the Milwaukee franchise this season.


With much experience with young star from his days coaching at Brown and Oregon State, he will enjoy the challenge of helping the Bucks move up the Eastern Conference.

They certainly have the young talent at their disposal and creating an environment where they feel comfortable and able to thrive is half of the battle.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is the main man and is an outside to bet to earn All-Star honours as he leads the charge to the playoffs. With Jabari Parker, Thon Maker and Michael Carter-Williams, they really have the base of a promising team.
