NBA: Obama got jokes!
- Updated: January 29, 2013
As we know, Monday, the defending champions Miami Heat visited the White House. They got to meet President Obama, a big lover of basketball.
They had a blast! Obama tore up some joke too. Here are some:
In 2010, President Obama had LeBron, Wade, Shane Battier, and others for his birthday and they played a game of basketball. Remembering this Obama said:
“A few of them were here a couple years ago for a pickup game on my birthday. Now, I’m not trying to take all the credit coach, but I think it’s clear that going up against me prepared them to take on Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. It sharpened their skills, it gave them the competitive edge they needed, and I think part of the reason they came back today is they wanted another shot at the old guy.”
He also made a joke about Dwayne Wades shoes:
“If any of you can pull this off, other than Dwyane, let me know.”
Obama also made fun of Mike Miller, who had seven three-pointers in Game 5 of the Finals, a record in the Finals:
“Mike Miller could barely walk. Mike, you look better now. You looked broke down, last year. … He looked like an old man.”
