The 2015 NBA-champion Warriors visited the White House today, and President Barack Obama went into full roast mode.

Obama, a former Chicagoan, making introductions for the 45-4 Warriors, who are on pace to set the NBA’s single-season wins record:

Obama on Luke Walton not getting credit for his record as Golden State’s acting coach while Kerr was recovering from surgery:

You can watch the full ceremony – and all of Obama’s other jokes – beginning at the 35:23 mark:
