President Obama hit the links on Wednesday, but basketball is what really is on his mind. 
 
Joining the golfer in chief at Farm Neck Golf Club in Oak Bluffs, Mass., were former NBA star Alonzo Mourning and legendary sharpshooter Ray Allen. 
 
Cyrus Walker, cousin of White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, completed the foursome at the oceanside course. Walker and Mourning are both frequent Obama golf partners. Allen played with the president during his Martha’s Vineyard vacation last year. 
 
It is the third round of golf for the president since he arrived on the secluded Massachusetts island last Friday evening. 
 
Rainy weather kept Obama inside the first family’s 8,100-square-foot rental home on Tuesday. 
 
Obama mixed things up on his first full day of vacation Saturday, inviting comedian Larry David to play in his foursome at the Vineyard Golf Club. 
 
The president is on a two-week vacation on the posh island, where the first family has traveled almost every summer since he took office.
 
But Obama hasn’t completely gotten away from work. He is reportedly making phone calls to members of Congress to discuss the nuclear deal with Iran.
