Derrick Rose was impressed with Barry the Baller:
'It was a great experience,'' Bulls rookie point guard Derrick Rose said. ''Usually, you're nervous around a person of his stature and power, but he made us feel at ease. He was like one of the guys. He was laughing and joking with us and knew everybody on the team by name.The 26-32 and constantly underachieving Bulls get a WH visit? Come on now. Using this logic, the winless 13 year old boys basketball team that I coach should have an official ceremony.
Alright, I better get in on these WH pick up games.
David Axelrod, the president's senior adviser, was a longtime Bulls season ticket holder and also attended the visit.As a six foot aging white guy with no hops, I want no part of the games with the Bulls. However, I will toss some mad elbows around and blast some out of shape White House staffers with crushing picks.
''The president chatted with the players and said he was converting the tennis court out back here into a basketball court,'' Axelrod said. ''He invited them to come and play pickup with him in the summer.
Reggie Love does not scare me either. I know Rahmbo could use some smacking around after his recent New Yorker fellatio by Ryan Lizza.
Due to Obama's White Sox fandom, Ozzie Guillen and club are destined to score an Oval Office visit this summer. Those Guillen quotes should be outstanding.
Oh, Dick Vitale, I glossed Obama with a dope basketball nickname over a year ago: Barry the Baller. Mine is much cooler slang than Commander in Swish.
