Default Bulls visit Obama in the White House

http://www.nba.com/bulls/news/whitehouse_090226.html



Quote:
“It was crazy just being here,” Bulls guard Derrick Rose said just before leaving the grounds. “I’ve never had the chance to be at the White House, but the President gave us the opportunity to come so that’s what we did. I was nervous just to stand next to him, but then for someone like him to even know my name was just amazing.”

Rose said that the visit, which included a tour of the White House, was one he’ll always remember. Along with his teammates, he was able to personally meet President Obama, have a brief discussion with him, and pose for photos.

“He knew just about everyone on our team and you could tell he’s a real Bulls fan,” Rose said.

God dammit Joakim Noah, gets to meet the president and still dresses/looks like a jackass. Are those big goofy glasses i see??

That must have been quite the honor for the President to know who you are since he's a Bulls fan.... and embarassing to be the few that he didn't know [he knew just about everyone]

Damn, Aaron Gray looks like a big lurking ghost in the back. Sticks out like a sore thumb.

Barack Obama is 6'1.25". He's going to be listed at 6'2" or 6'3" in the NBA.

He actually got traded 3 times in about 4 months lol. Too bad he never made it to a good team.
