Obama's Presidential Zings during Miami Heat's WH visit.

from the article By Ball Don't Lie........

Check out the highlight of the two-time NBA champs Miami Heat's second straight January visit to the White House meeting with  US President Barack Obama in celebration of their 2012-2013 NBA Finals victory. It was contested then by the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs. It was Obama's late-night-style monologue about the two-time-defending champs which brought the house down! Check out the video, and some of the president's best zings, below:

In gist.....
  • "Usually people enjoy coming to the White House, but I have to say, I've never seen folks more excited than the Heat when they came last year. I mean, LeBron was so pumped up, I thought he was going to give me a hug and knock me over."
  • "We've got some outstanding members of Congress who are big fans of the Heat. They're from both parties. Because we all know nothing brings people together like the Miami Heat. Across the NBA, there's just a ...unifying sense about the Heat."
  • "This group has won twice, but it's gone to the finals three times, and sometimes it feels like they're still fighting for a little respect. I can relate to that."
  • “Last season, the Heat put together one of the most dominating regular seasons ever by a defending champion. They won a team-record 66 games. At one point, they won 27 games straight, the second-longest streak ever. Extraordinarily impressive ... almost as impressive as the Bulls’ 72-win season. [beat] Riley and I were reminiscing about those Knicks years.”
  • On the dramatic close to the fourth quarter of Game 6 against the San Antonio Spurs: "And then, they brought out the ropes. And then, Ray Allen saw them bring out the ropes. With five seconds left, Chris Bosh gets an incredible offensive rebound, passes it out to Ray, he’s backing up, he has to jump forward, hits one of the most iconic shots of all time. Then, he added a few choice words about the ropes, which we cannot repeat here. Ray — I do want you to know, you know, when you say those things on the court, like, people can read your lips, right? You do understand that? OK. All right.”
  • "Everybody on this team participated. And from Ray's big shot, to to the contributions of Mario Chalmers, Shane Battier, Udonis Haslem, Birdman, Birdman's tattoos, Birdman's Mohawk ... [laughs] the Heat showed us the kind of heart and determination it takes to be a champion."
  • "I heard that all of you are getting ready to embarrass yourselves by singing some karaoke for Shane's education foundation. Let's leave Al Green to the pros, people."
  • "We're very proud to have them back. We wish them great luck for the rest of the season, unless they're playing the Bulls. And with that, I think we should take a picture, but we should make it quick, before one of these guys starts yelling at Mario. I mean, sometimes it's just a bad pass, guys. It's not Mario's fault. [to Chalmers] I got your back, man."
