President Obama took to the basketball court Monday as part of the White House Easter Egg Roll and did not impress.
Much has been said about Obama’s basketball exploits with the private White House court games and his scrimmage with the UNC basketball team back in 2008, but the public has not had much access to actually witnessing the president play.
We finally got a look at it today, and it wasn’t pretty.
According to a White House pool report, Obama made only two of the 22 shots he took while shooting around with kids at the Easter Egg Roll.
Among the misses were an ugly airball and a layup that did not suggest Obama had been playing much recently.
Most of the shots came while everyone was shooting around, until everyone stopped to see if the president could actually make one after numerous consecutive misses.
Obama eventually gave up and handed the ball to a kid who immediately made a layup.
