Why wasn't Obama in Paris? Maybe because for Obama the NBA comes first!

The San Antonio Spurs Come To Washington

The White House Press Corp Pool Report below describes an event that was attended by Barack Obama this afternoon in the East Room.

This event, while trivial to most in light of recent world events, could very well be the reason why the leader of the free world chose not to attend the rally in Paris meant to show support and solidarity for our French ally, instead staying home to watch the NFL playoffs on TV!

After all, the President is a big NBA fan so who could blame him?

How about most sane inhabitants of the free world that he is supposedly leading!

San Antonio Spurs event

The Spurs entered a packed White House East Room at 2:41 p.m., as the crowd applauded, whooped, and chanted, "Go, Spurs, Go!"

Obama entered at 2:43 p.m., accompanied by Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich and General Manager R.C. Buford.

In his open press remarks, Obama gave a shout-out to a prominent member of the audience: HUD Secretary and former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro.

The president joked about Popovich's uneasy relationship with the media and the advanced ages of some of the Spurs players (and of himself). He lauded the international flavor of the squad, calling them "the U.N. of basketball teams."

Obama bemoaned the fact that his beloved Chicago Bulls haven't won the NBA title during his presidency.

At the end, the two-term president told the Spurs that, if they want some tips on how to win back-to-back titles, "you know where to find me."

After brief remarks by Popovich, the team presented Obama with a Spurs jersey -- labeled POTUS, with the number 1 -- and a signed basketball. Obama then posed for pictures with the team.

Obama departed the East Room at 2:55 p.m.
