WASHINGTON OK, Mr. President, let's see how you do picking the pro game.
Barack Obama was on his way to the Marine One helicopter on the South Lawn today when a reporter shouted a question. The topic: Who is going to win the NBA championship, the Los Angeles Lakers or the Orlando Magic?
Said the smiling president: "Lakers in six, I think."
So far so good this year for Obama. A huge basketball fan, he correctly predicted that that the University of North Carolina men's basketball team would win the NCAA championship.
