Charlotte Hornets Biyombo joins Obama for charity launch in Kenya

Charlotte Hornets center Bismack Biyombo was in Kenya with former US president Barack Obama this week for the opening of a sports and education facility founded by Obama’s half-sister.

Biyombo and a few other NBA compatriots are in Africa preparing for the third annual NBA Africa game on August 4 in South Africa. Biyombo is a native African from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He took to Twitter to share in his excitement.

Obama, a well-documented basketball fan, wasted no time putting the facility’s new court to work.
