    President Barack Obama has begun his hometown holiday weekend by playing some basketball.

    The president is in Chicago with his family for a few days over the Memorial Day weekend.

    Obama left his home in the Hyde Park neighborhood on Saturday morning and arrived at the University of Chicago Lab School to play basketball.|

    He wore a Chicago White Sox cap — they're his favorite baseball team.

    His daughters, Malia and Sasha, attended the Lab School when the family lived in Chicago.
