President Obama's dream of owning an NBA team just got its first superstar endorsement ... 'cause Russell Westbrook says he'd love to lace 'em up for the top man if he ever scored his team.
Westbrook was out in Beverly Hills when we asked about Obama saying he wants to run an NBA franchise when his lease at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue runs out.
Question is, would Westbrook ... who's a free agent after next year .... wanna hoop it up for Obama's dream team?
Check out the clip -- Looks like there's a formula to bring Russ to your NBA team ...
Just add Obama.
