Bulls to Visit Obama
I just got confirmation that the Chicago Bulls will visit President Barack Obama at the White House this afternoon, adding more fuel to the speculation that Obama will be at the Verizon Center on Friday to see his beloved Bulls take on the Washington Wizards.
After their 111-99 loss in New Jersey on Wednesday, the new-look Bulls were supposed to practice this morning at Trinity College, but those plans understandably were scrapped. Hey, who skips the President to practice?
The Bulls are the first professional sports franchise to visit the White House since Obama's inauguration last month. It's well-known that Obama is the first baller in the White House and rooted for the Bulls while in Chicago. Word has it that one of the motivating factors for the Boston Celtics' repeat efforts is that they want to be the first championship team to visit Obama. With the number of players who supported Obama during the campaign, you would expect that LeBron James, Dwight Howard and Chris Paul would like to beat fellow Obama supporter Kevin Garnett to the punch.
Since the Bulls have no shot at winning the title this summer, at least now they will have a leg up on the rest of the league in something. But when is President Obama going to invite his new home team?
