WASHINGTON (AP) - King James and President Obama. Now that’s star power.

The Washington Wizards are expecting the president for Saturday night’s game against LeBron James and the Miami Heat.

Wizards players arriving at the morning shootaround had to go through a Secret Service pat down.

Wizards guard Nick Young said: “I saw all the dogs, and it kind of scared me. I see everybody waiting to get patted down, and then I realized that he’s here, the president.”

He adds that he is going to play especially hard because “you don’t want to get embarrassed in front of the president.”

The Wizards have told fans to arrive 45 minutes earlier than usual because of enhanced security.
