President Barack Obama honored and roasted the Golden State Warriors at the same time during an official White House visit for the World Champions on Thursday.
Obama jokingly poked fun at the 45-4 Warriors for not being the best single season team yet, instead praising Steve Kerr for being part of the 1996 Chicago Bulls who won 72 games, a number the Dubs are chasing during this campaign.
Obama also poked Steph Curry for being a great shooter but not having the “prettiest” jump shot on the team, instead laying that honor on fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson.
It was a joyous day for Warriors fans who waited 40 years to see their team capture a title.
