While waiting on the results from the 2012 Presidential Election, President Re-Elect Barack Obama wasn’t doing the normal campaigning in swing states trying to sway those last bit of undecided voters, he was in the gym with Scottie Pippen. We all know what happens when Scottie get in the gym, he reverts back to the 90?s and thinks everybody is Michael Jordan. Via Probasketballtalk.com Pippen couldn’t resist the comparison:
He’s not an overly aggressive player, but he takes what the defense gives him,” said Pippen. “He’s got a smooth game. He probably used to be a little more aggressive, but obviously he doesn’t want to get hurt.”Well of course not Scottie, the President isn’t going to come out full throttle ready to A-1 everybody on the court and then try to give an acceptance speech. With secret service there I highly doubt anyone in the gym, thats in their right mind, would attempt to foul the President.
That certainly wasn’t going to happen if the defense had anything to do about it.
“I thought the lanes opened up when Michael Jordan used to drive,” laughed Pippen. “I used to be like, wow. But when I saw the President drive, I thought they were bringing the whole motorcade through the lane it was so wide.”
When he first entered the gym, if you hadn’t looked over to see him, you wouldn’t have noticed,” said Pippen of Obama. “It was surprisingly low key. He just came in and started shaking hands. He’s someone who is very easy to approach.”I mean come on Scottie, we do have one of the coolest Presidents.
