If LeBron James decides to go to Chicago, he'll have some good teammates in place—and an exceedingly famous No. 1 fan. President Obama wants the King to sign with his hometown Bulls, he told Marv Albert in a recent interview. “You know, I don't want to meddle,” he said “I will say this: Rose, Joakim Noah, it's a pretty good core. You know, you could see LeBron fitting in pretty well there.”
Obama says he thinks LeBron needs a coach he respects, and teammates who'll work hard for him—kind of like Michael Jordan found with the, hint-hint, Bulls. But “if that's in Cleveland, then he should stay in Cleveland,” he added. The interview, which touches on all things basketball, airs tomorrow at 7pm on TNT, Chicago Breaking News reports.
