Barack Obama’s Opinion on the Bulls

In the latest B.S. Report podcast on, Editor-in-Chief Bill Simmmons interviewed the country’s Commander-in-Chief, President Barack Obama. Obama, a longtime Chicago-area sports fan, gave his opinion on a number of sports subjects including how he felt the Bulls would play the remainder of the season.

Obama: Deng seems more confident. Boozer is in better shape. Derrick Rose has matured. I’m a little worried about making sure that they give him enough rest with the back spasms that he had. But the Bulls, I think, are right in there. I think they’ve got a great chance. The Heat are playing better than anybody right now. And when those folks get going on a fast break, it’s over.

But during the playoffs things slow down a little bit, and you got to run a half-court offense, and in that situation, I think the Bulls got a shot.


Obama said he was an NBA league pass subscriber (which he pays for out of his pocket) and is a regular viewer of SportsCenter in the morning. When asked how he would celebrate if the Bulls won the championship, Obama replied, “I probably won’t do the whole Jordan-hugging-the-ball thing….That would be a little extreme. I’ll be pretty happy, though.”
