“I’ve never seen somebody that size, that fast, who can jump that high, who is that strong, who has that much basketball savvy, all in one package.” – Obama on LeBron James.
Meeting the President is an honor and something to remember but receiving that type of praise from a President would have to rank as one of the coolest things ever in your life. Then again, President Barack Obama and LeBron James are friends, but those words weren’t friend to friend ego stroking words.
Obama then responded to Barkley’s question about LeBron possibly being as good as Michael Jordan, by saying he is a Chicago guy and “Mike will always be that guy” to him.
