Numerous jokes, a few red faces and plenty of praise was on the cards as Stephen Curry and his teammates of the NBA champion Golden State Warriors visited the White House to meet United States (US) President Barrack Obama.
It’s a tradition for the reigning champions of the top sporting leagues in America to visit the US president.
“There were (Harrison) Barnes dunks, Bogut blocks and Draymond Green showing us heart over height every single night.” Obama said, as reported by the Guardian.
Curry was on the receiving end of jokes from the basketball-loving President. The National Basketball Association (NBA) superstar was described as “clowning” during their previous night thrashing of the Washington Wizards. Steph Curry scored a career high 51 points in that game.
Obama also made a note of how he defeated Curry in a golf game last summer. Curry however laid the blame on the presence of secret services agents on course for the defeat.
“That is not the case” Obama prompted on Steph Curry’s rebuttal.
The president also made a little fun of Warriors’ other shooting guard, Klay Thompson leaving him red faced although he ended the conversation praising the 25-year-old.
“Thompson’s jump shot was ‘a little prettier’ that Curry’s.” nation’s baller-in-chief pointed out.
Steve Kerr, coach of the Warriors visited US President Bill Clinton as a player with the Chicago Bulls and Spurs stated how Obama will end his presidency early next year and become a “free agent.”
“I am ready to go.” Obama joked wanting to sign for the Warriors.
