President Barack Obama Unable to Make NBA Finals Prediction

by June 12, 2012

The Miami Heat/OKC Thunder is too close to call for President Obama, who shied away from making a pick. From the AP: “The game pits the Oklahoma City Thunder from solidly Republican Oklahoma against the Miami Heat, in the crucial swing state of Florida. Asked by a television reporter from Reno, Nev., to predict a winner on Monday Obama demurred. Obama, an avid basketball fan, said, quoting: ‘Both teams look terrific and I am looking forward to a good series. Hopefully, it will go to seven games. But I can’t make a prediction right now. They both look pretty tough.'”
