President Obama Knew About Jeremy Lin Before Anyone Else in the World


Fedora-wearing hipster Barack Obama joined Grantland’s Bill Simmons at the White House yesterday for the first-ever podcast interview with a sitting president. Most of the conversation consisted of Obama boasting of various basketball-related accomplishments, such as the time he beat a WNBA player in H-O-R-S-E, the time he blew past Chris Paul with his crossover, or the time he told Blake Griffin to start taking more jump shots and then Blake Griffin started taking more jump shots. The best part, though, was when Obama claimed that he “knew about Jeremy [Lin] before … everybody else did.” Everybody!
