Who was the first president to use the term White House on presidential stationery?

Possibly James Madison. The "Executive Mansion" was burned by the British during the war of 1812, and after the war was over, it was painted white to cover smoke damage. Madison was president at the time, and may have dubbed it "The White House", but it is equally likely people just began popularly calling it that.

Does the White House have a basketball court?

Yes, he does, but it is not just his-- it was built for any president to use. Since a president needs security and privacy, the White House grounds provide a private court (it's not inside the White House itself; it's outside, near the presidential swimming pool). The presidential basketball court has been used by a number of presidents over the past several decades, as well as by their friends and families.

What is the nerve center of the White House?

Probably the West Wing. Each President picks his/her own staff, which become the President’s closest advisors and usually have offices in the White House. (West Wing) Their titles do not always indicate the function they perform for the Chief Executive--assistant to the President; special consultant; counselor; etc. The titles vary from one administration to the next but in general, the men and women who hold the offices oversee the political and policy interests of the President. As part of a personal staff, they do not have to be confirmed by the Senate and they can be hired and fired at will. There are two ways to organize the staff: the circular method in which several assistants report directly to the President; and the pyramid method in which most assistants report through a hierarchy to a chief of staff who then deals with the President. Over the years, the White House staff has become an important group of advisors to the President and at times, are very powerful in influence.
