National Barack Association: Obama Hosts The Lakers

Views

January 25, 2010: He’s #1. President Obama hosted some special guests in the White House today: the Los Angeles Lakers. The afternoon event was intended to commemorate the Lakers championship 2008-2009 season. Obama brought his love for the wide world of sports with him to Pennsylvania Ave. But he’s shown a particular fondness for basketball, making it the sport de jour of his administration.

The President giddily accepted his gifts — an autographed basketball and a personalized jersey. Here he shows off his jersey along with Lakers guard Kobe Bryant.
