But during the playoffs things slow down a little bit, and you got to run a half court offense, and in that situation, we think the Bulls got a shot.
BS: Over the last five years, how many times have you envisioned welcoming the world champion Chicago Bulls to the White House.
BS: Let’s see we think you’ve set the record already for most championship teams that have been welcomed into the White House or you’re approaching the record.
Obama: Well, you know what’s fun is when the women basketball players come in, because they’re all gorgeous and they’re all 6 foot 5 and wearing high heels.
And when Maya Moore and the Connecticut Huskies came, we actually went down to our little basket down here and we played a game of HORSE.
We read some quote where you said you couldn’t intercede because there are bigger fish to fry.
And with Jeremy Lin and the Heat and all the unbelievable young players that are out here right now, we think this sport is as popular as it’s ever been.
But we think it’s real important for professional athletes and sports owners to just remember you got a whole bunch of folks out here, all across the country, who invest so much in their teams, and they don’t begrudge these guys making millions of dollars, or the owners making gazillions of dollars most of them, very rarely can they afford to buy a ticket to go to an actual game.
And if folks involved in professional sports remember that, that the reason they’re making money is because some hardworking guy out there is rooting for them and paying attention to them, then usually we should be able to sort these things out.

Reggie Love, our former aide who played at Duke and he’s now getting his MBA, he answered anybody who said that people took it easy on us when they played with us.

Obama: we are very proud of the fact we do not cheat when we’m playing golf.
BS: Tell us about the college football playoff system that you once upon a time pushed for.
Obama: Looks like we hear there’s talk that they’re going to at least start maybe with a four team playoff, which BS: So you’re happy about this.
Because part of what makes sports great, part of what makes March Madness great, the NFL playoffs great, is every once in a while something happens during the playoffs that shows the character of a team.
BS: So if this happens, the Bulls are good again, you have a college football playoff system so what’s next?.
