It’s nice to know that President Obama is anticipating the start of the NBA season as much as the rest of us. Or, should we say, the staffer who runs his Twitter account.

The disclaimer on the President’s official page — which has over 39 million followers — specifically states that messages directly from Obama himself will be signed to let us know that he in fact was the one who sent them.

“This account is run by Organizing for Action staff. Tweets from the President are signed -bo.”

This one doesn’t have the signature, but the fact that Obama rose to political prominence in the city of Chicago tells us that while he may not have originated the message himself, he almost certainly endorses its content.

The Bulls, of course, tip off the NBA season in Miami against the defending champion Heat on Tuesday night.

    Obama’s comment should’ve simply been this:

    Wasn’t his account hacked today? At least someone named Obama was doing something useful

    that tweet was contracted out for the low low price of $600 million.
