While preparing for the playoffs, the Washington Wizards took some time this week to attend the 137th Easter Egg Roll at the White House.
Yahoo Sports' Dan Devine wrote about the visit, where Paul Pierce and President Obama had some friendly back and forth:
Obama joined a group of children and Wizards players John Wall, Paul Pierce, Bradley Beal, Kevin Seraphin and Garrett Temple in a brief shooting game at an outdoor court on the premises, which concluded with POTUS hitting a short jumper for the win.
Wizards All-Star guard John Wall added some more about the smack talk:
More Wall on @BarackObama :"He trash-talked Paul (Pierce) when he hit the game-winner. 'I'm clutch. I'm clutch.' #WizardsTalk @CSNWizards

Obama's set shot is made for early morning run at the YMCA. The lack of lift on his jumper would make Antoine Walker proud. But you have to respect the President for making it rain from the foul line in khakis and a button-up.
