Former U.S. President Barack Obama Picks What Team He Would Chose If He Was An NBA Free Agent


It's no secret that the 44th President of the United States is a HUGE basketball fan. It's also no secret that the basketball world loved Mr. Obama.

So when given the chance, one interviewer asked the former President a very interesting NBA related question. Take a look:

Interviewer: You're an NBA All-Star, you're a free agent this offseason, every team is offering you the max contract, which team would you choose to meet with in free agency and why?

Obama: I think it's fair to say that there are organizations in the NBA or the NFL, and may not win every year, but have created the kind of culture that I was referring to earlier. They're smart, they're well run, they're focused on team, they treat everyone in the organization with respect, and that is the kind of organization that I would want to be apart of. And so I will say that over the last 15 years in basketball, San Antonio would be a great example of that.

Can't exactly argue with Obama's decision there. The Spurs are the epitome of stability when it comes to success. And although stars seem to be avoiding that area in real life, Mr. Barack is all about it. Interestingly enough, the guy is actually a Bulls fan, so his pick should come as a huge compliment to the Spurs organization.

Now we'll ask you: if you were an NBA free-agent, what team would you choose?
