Obama On Jordan’s Golf Quip: Think More About The Bobcats – Or Hornets

Barack Obama, Michael Jordan

We just think it’s cool that President Barack Obama and NBA icon Michael Jordan are even friends. That they feel comfortable poking fun at one another through the media? Pretty awesome. After Jordan recently quipped that Obama is “a s****y golfer”, POTUS playfully fired back by imploring MJ to worry more “about the Bobcats – or the Hornets” than his golf game. Read More »

Sixers Forward Spencer Hawes Has President Barack Obama Toilet Paper

Spencer Hawes, Evan Turner

Sixers teammates Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes must have been hanging out today because Turner posted a photo to Instagram with the caption that mentioned he was at Hawes’ abode. Two teammates hanging out together away from the court isn’t unusual, but the subject matter of Turner’s IG post certainly was, touching on both politics and potty humor in equal measure. Let’s just say Hawes isn’t a big fan of President Barack Obama, and that might be an understatement, too. Read More »

It was during a highly emotional game in December against the Indiana Pacers, a team they faced off against in last year’s Eastern Conference Finals when tempers flared on the Miami Heat sideline.

The NBA’s Most Surprising Team Finally Loses; Toronto Suffers A Major Injury Scare

Joakim Noah

On the day that Chicago’s most famous face took center stage in the presidential election, the Bulls beat down the undefeated Magic, 99-93.

David Stern’s Scouting Report On The President: “He’s Not As Good As He Thinks He is.”
