(Newser) – Steph Curry made more three-pointers this season than any player ever while leading the Golden State Warriors to the most wins in NBA history. But when the President of the United States offers jump-shooting tips, you listen. The Hill reports a PSA about mentorship starring Curry and President Obama was released by the White House Saturday. In the clip, Obama serves as Curry's mentor, helping him with his resume ("You don't need this little clip art"), beating him in Connect Four, and even improving his jump shot ("elbow in…make sure it's on your fingertips").

The PSA is promoting Obama's 2014 My Brother's Keeper initiative, which aims get boys and young men of color out of the criminal justice system and into higher education. CBS notes that Curry and Obama have a "cordial relationship," with Curry having visited the White House following the Warriors 2015 NBA Championship and even playing a few rounds of golf with the president.
