We've heard from our SB Nation team experts, and we've heard from Ball Don't Lie President of Basketball Operations Kelly Dwyer ... now it's time to hear from The President.
Right before boarding the Marine One helicopter for the Middle East, President Barack Obama was asked by a media member as to who he thought was going to win the NBA championship, the Los Angeles Lakers or the Orlando Magic?
"Lakers in six, I think," he said smiling.
Worth noting: the basketball-obsessed Obama correctly predicted that the University of North Carolina men's basketball team would win the NCAA championship. He called the Super Bowl, too. His track record is flawless.
I, for one, can't wait to see what Dwight Howard blogs about this slight.
