Obama Balls With The Bulls

Over the weekend, President Obama, back in Washington, D.C. after a stop-over here in Chicago last week, assembled a team of basketball stars and legends for a special charity for game for wounded troops. Among the players - which included Bill Russell and Magic Johnson - were current Bulls Joakim Noah and Derrick Rose. Media were barred from the game meaning we'll likely never see any kind of epic dunk Carmelo Anthony slammed over our Commander-in-Chief or if Obama was able to break Magic's ankles on a sweet cross-over. All we know is the above photo the White House released in which we assume Noah and Rose are laughing with the President, not at him.
