Washington, Feb 27: Usually, teams visit the White House after winning a championship, but the Chicago Bulls made the trip Thursday, Feb 26 less than 24 hours after one of their worst losses of the season in New Jersey.
Of course, it helps when the President is a big fan. Players, coaches broadcasters and front office personnel for the Bulls met with and posed for photos with President Obama on Thursday, feb 26 afternoon for about 10 to 15 minutes in the Blue Room of the White House, reports the Chicago Sun Times.
The Bulls presented the President, a long-time Bulls fan, with a Bulls jersey with 'Obama' and No. 44 on the back.
During the team photo, the President said he wanted to stand next to Ben Gordon because Ben's is not that tall."
