Obama, basketball hoop, White House

If he wins, there will be hoops. And no more bowling.

    what was so bad about bowling? i do agree about putting the hoops up in the white house. saw him talking about that on kimmel’s show last night. only knock i have on the interview was kimmel asking if he could dunk but somehow obama talked about hawaii having mostly asians and he always post up coz they short. c’mon obama you are better than that! =)

    Charles Barkley for VP or Jerry West.

  • riggs

    he has a quick first step for his age.

  • Arthur Rimbaud Jr.

    Too bad I’m french, I can’t vote for him.

    He’s not gonna have much time to play ball as gas and food prices continue to rise, unemployment goes up, the economy goes to hell and angry people with no hope storm Washington. But hey, sort out those photo ops now. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. Sometimes I really hate America. (And I ALWAYS hate Jimmy Kimmel.)

    Russ, and Simmons used to write for Kimmel. is that a reason why you hate him or does that just add extra hate point for simmons?

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    I made the mistake of watching the Kimmel Show lead-in to Game One of the Finals, and it was both unfunny and incredibly offensive (and not in an Eddie Murphy Raw kind of way). Simmons is an entirely separate ball of suck, although they do have some similarities.

    That means he’s got to get Stern’s endorsement, right?

    He should have put a hoop up somewhere so he could work on his game more before he started letting people see videos of him playing. Sure it’s cool that he loves the game but the fact that people continue to refer to him as a basketball player is a joke. He’s garbage! Only people that can’t play at all would look at his footage and say “Wow, the guy can play.” Having Reggie Love in your entourage doesn’t make you good. Shoot, it doesn’t even make Reggie Love good!

    Didn’t he play starting shooting guard on a division two college basketball team?

  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com/ albie1kenobi

    i hope he doesn’t spend time working on his game. we have more pressing problems than his basketball skills. i rather have a president who enjoys basketball but lacks ball-handling skills than a basketball player who’s running the country with no idea on how economy works.

    Can’t be any worse than a C+ president.

    garnett for secretary of defense…

  • tealish

    polowdaJon: really? Homeland security has their share of “clutch time” moments…

    He should get representatives from all Middle Eastern countries and settle their differences in a massive game of 21.

    Not if Iraq make it to the semi finals.

  • Steve

    Is the “Obomber” really the best nickname for a president with a Muslim background which people are already concerned about?

    Iran are playing Aus in the Olympic q.f’s. they have some 7-4 dude. Ok player, but Aussie Pride reps.

    Jukai, I believe it was division 3…big difference.

  • Trey3bling

    I hope Obama wins president, but I sall that news clip of him playing basketball, and he can ball. If he dont get president, he should start playing basketball again. OBAMA, OBAMA, OBAMA!!!!!!!!

  • hard(ly)@work-literally

    great—all the real racist –redneck dudes will love this story—but its still cool…..

  • angie

    My problem with this statement is that he should not be planning redecorating the WH (on the tax payer’s dime, dontcha know) before he is even elected.
