“I know this is the first trip for some of these players, but a few of them were here a couple of years ago for a pick-up game on my birthday,” Obama said.
“Now, I’m not trying to take all the credit, coach, but I think that it’s clear that going up against me prepared them to take on Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. It sharpened their skills. It gave them the competitive edge that they needed. And I think part of the reason they came back today is they want another shot at the old guy.”
