    5 FACTS: Andrew Yang

    Here are five things to know about Democratic presidential hopeful Andrew Yang.

    (Published Tuesday, July 9, 2019)

    Andrew Yang's got game — at least according to a grainy video he posted to Twitter on Friday.

    The video shows the 2020 Democratic presidential contender playing a game of 1-on-1 against New Hampshire basketball legend Luke Bonner at a mysterious, undisclosed location in Concord, New Hampshire.

    "Shooting hoops with @LukeyBonner in Concord New Hampshire," Yang said in his tweet.

    The video shows Yang draining what looks to be a 3-pointer over the 7-foot Bonner.

    Of course, Bonner, the brother of former NBA player Matt Bonner, wasn't about to let himself get shown up on Twitter. So he replied to Yang's tweet with a video of his own showing him dunking over Yang.

    Yang acknowledged that he was overmatched, saying that the former Trinity High School star took it easy on him and still won 5-2.

    Matt Bonner even weighed in, saying, "Thanks for taking it easy on my little brother" and giving Yang some advice on where to eat in Concord.

    Yang later posted a longer video from his game with Bonner on Twitter with the message "warming up for my game with @tedcruz," a reference to his much-hyped contest with Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Yang challenged Cruz to a game of basketball earlier this month, though it has yet to materialize.

    Yang was in New Hampshire on Thursday and Friday for a series of campaign stops in Peterborough, Nashua, Durham and Portsmouth.
