San Antonio Spurs make championship trip to White House, meet Obama

It wasn’t Tim Duncan or Tony Parker or Gregg Popovich’s first trip to the White House, but it sure had been a while.

It’s an annual tradition for the NBA champion to visit the White House — which for a couple more years is occupied by a big basketball fan in Barack Obama — and the Spurs were up. Most teams have a big question with “what do we do with the guys who weren’t on the team last season” on these visits, but not the Spurs who made only one roster change for this season.

There were the standard speeches, a POTUS jersey was handed out and lots of kind words were said.

The video above plays it pretty straight, but the president was having some fun with it, too.
