During a recent visit to the White House, Miami Heat power forward Chris Bosh watched a video of President Obama shooting hoops.
In the video, from last year's Easter Egg Roll, Obama made just two of 22 shot attempts while playing with children and players from the Washington Wizards.
Bosh, whose team was being honored at the White House on Tuesday for winning their second consecutive NBA championship last summer, went on to defend Obama.
“I'm a leftie too, so I got to stand up for the left-handed guys,” he said. “The form looks pretty good but you know, sometimes you just go two for 22.”
Bosh said his time with Obama was "awesome," only lamenting the fact they didn't have time to shoot together.
“It’s really cool,” Bosh said of Obama’s interest in basketball. “The fact that he knows who you are, and he follows basketball, and that he probably watched all the games is pretty awesome.”
