President Barack Obama knows a little bit about basketball. That's been well publicized. What hasn't been talked about too much this week though, is the NBA knowledge he dropped on Monday.
In an interview with the New York Times Political Blog, The Caucus, President Obama was asked about which teams he thought would eventually meet up in the NBA Finals. His answer:
"Cleveland would play the Los Angeles Lakers."
When pushed to predict a winner, Obama stopped short. But he was certainly spinning towards Cleveland. Obama went on to say:
"I’m telling you, those Cavs,” Mr. Obama marveled. “They’ve only lost one game all year at home. Thirty-five and one. And they have home court advantage. That’s pretty impressive.”
Impressive indeed Mr. President. They also won 13 in a row overall as of Thursday.
