Barack Obama is the White House resident known for his honing his game on the basketball court, but Michelle Obama just dunked on you and there's nothing you can do about it.
The Miami Heat were at the White House last week celebrating their second NBA title, and took some time to help the First Lady promote her "Let's Move" initiative. "Helping" basically means goofing around with star players Lebron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Ray Allen, and head coach Erik Spoelstra. This 49 second video is the best thing you'll see this morning:
Let's review, shall we? First Michelle and Lebron team up to mean mug some apples while Allen and Wade, stuck playing the straight men here, answer questions about fitness. Bosh pops up in the background and downs a biiiig glass of water. But then, it happens. GIF courtesy of SB Nation:
With an assist from Lebron, Michelle stuffs the rock with authority and then stomps all over the interview. Look at that post-dunk face. Are you messing with Michelle? No, no you are not messing with Michelle. We're all just lucky no one was injured during this merciless posterizing. Do not step to a streaking Michelle Obama when she's going to the hoop unless you want to end up on SportsCenter the next morning.
