Miami Heat legend Alonzo Mourning and Jupiter’s NBA hall of famer Michael Jordan will be part of the grand prize of yet another lottery to benefit the campaign of President Barack Obama!

Well, not them personally. Playing or breaking bread with them!

With Obama behind challenger Mitt Romney in contributions, the prez’ campaign Tuesday announced new donors willing to give at least 3 bucks would be entered in a lottery whose winner would get to play basketball in the Obama Classic 2012.

The basketball game is supposed to include Obama, Mourning, New York Knicks legend Patrick Ewing, current Knick Carmelo Anthony, and tentatively current Heaters Ray Allen and Chris Bosh.

After shooting hoops, the winner will also get to have dinner with the commander in chief and the soon-to-be Bears Club resident Jordan.

The location and date of the dinner are yet to be determined but Obama’s campaign has made a habit of raffling prizes that have included ducats to the prez’ birthday party and dinner at actor George Clooney’s house.
