On Easter Sunday, President Obama's shooting stroke was like Gucci Mane ice cream. "So Iccyy!"
No, not his skeet shooting! That's Dick Cheney's hobby. Nah, Obama shot like he was facing Jim Boeheim's 2-3 zone. He had a harder time finding the bottom of the net than my nieces scouring for eggs during Easter scavenger hunts.
Via ABC News:
After missing three during a general shoot around, Obama lined up with kids at the free throw line. The kids were asked to stand on opposite sides of the president based on whether they thought he would make it. Only one boy went to the “miss” side.
“Oh, man,” a stunned POTUS said, hands on hips. The boy didn’t budge. And three others joined.
In sharp form, POTUS released the ball. It bounced off the rim and circled it — miss.
Obama should respect that kid's strategy of gathering votes by rallying against the establishment. It reflects his decision a decade ago to campaign against the march to the War In Iraq when most of the American public and Congress were following Bush like blind sheep.
The president then posed for pictures and went off to play tennis on the other side of the court. Minutes later, at O for 4 the president, an avid basketball player, declared “I have to hit one shot before I go.”
See, this is how Allen Iverson tarnished his legacy while playing himself out the league. Just walk way. Instead Obama proceeded to miss 14 more shots until he made a layup. You don't get change for uncontested layups, though. We'll just say he went 1-for-21 and remember better days.
