MIAMI (AP) -- When Heat forward Chris Bosh met President Barack Obama this week, no introductions were necessary. To Bosh's surprise, Obama knew exactly who he was.
Bosh and Dwyane Wade were among those attending a fundraiser at Alonzo Mourning's home on Monday, when Obama appeared in support of U.S. Rep. Ron Klein's re-election campaign. It was the first time Bosh met the president, who says he will root for the Heat this season -- except when they the Chicago Bulls.
Bosh says "it was cool" meeting the president. Bosh says he doesn't get nervous meeting people because "we're all people at the end of the day."
Bosh says Obama talked about teamwork, drawing parallels between what Wade wanted to see during this summer's free-agent period and what the president wants to see in the November elections.
