Iman Shumpert‘s jaw literally dropped when, with the Cavaliers visiting the White House, President Barack Obama had his podium moved:

“No,” Shumpert said when asked whether he was amazed that the podium moved. “The fact he said ‘team’ and they sprinted over there. I didn’t care that the podium moved, they moved fast. He said, ‘Hey team!’ And they was gone. Dude was gone. I thought it was cool.”

OK then.
