WASHINGTON, D.C. - President Obama was still talking about the fantastic play of the San Antonio Spurs who defeated LeBron James and the world champion Miami Heat by a score of 111-87.
The president said that he had made a bet with his good friend and civilian presidential advisor George Clooney.
Clooney had told him that the Spurs were going to beat the Heat. The president said that he would bet him $800 that the Heat would win the game.
President Obama said after the game that he could not believe how poorly LeBron James played. Clooney pointed out the fact that he had one of the NBA's best defensive players Kawhi Leonard guarding him.
George commented that Leonard went to the Bruce Bowen School of Defense and he graduated at the top of his class.
Leonard, who wears #2 is noted for hardly ever speaking. He has said on two different occasions that he lets his game playing do the talking.
Meanwhile, TNT NBA analyst Shaquille O'Neal stated that his colleague Charles "The Fat Bro" Barkley says more words in 45 seconds than Kawhi says in a whole week.
