President Obama Goes 2-for-22 Shooting Basketball at White House Easter Egg Roll Event (Video)


Just call him B-rick Obama.

Ever year on Easter, the White House celebrates with its annual Easter Egg Roll event. This year’s edition welcomed 30,000 children and parents to the White House lawn to partake in all sorts of traditional Easter celebrations, including an egg hunt, of course.

Joined by some WNBA stars and a group of boys and girls in partnership with NBA Cares, President Obama also took some time to shoot some hoops on Sunday — although he’s probably wishing that the cameras were off. During the shootaround, Obama went just 2-for-22 from the field, including a number of missed layups.

While the president is a noted basketball and Chicago Bulls fan, as White House press secretary Jay Carney later noted, “You know, the president doesn’t get to practice probably as much as he’d like to.”
