The White House can add another perennial NBA All-Star to its growing list of basketball heavyweights joining the push for ObamaCare enrollees. Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant went on the Dan Patrick radio show Wednesday urging people to enroll in coverage before the March 31 deadline. An administration official said the show is nationally syndicated on 275 radio stations and simulcast on a two TV networks. Bryant joins Miami Heat star Lebron James, who cut an ad that will run nationally throughout the month and his teammate, Shane Battier, who helped Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius roll out a study showing that sports injuries are common among the young.
