As we all know, the thoughts and opinions of American presidents are invariably correct and the final word on all matters.
So it is with great relief that I pass along the message that the Michael Jordan-Lebron James debate is over, as Barack Obama has admitted once and for all what all reasonable basketball fans already knew:
“Jordan,” he said. “Although I love LeBron. I’m a Chicago guy.”
This debate was put to rest in an unlikely context. Obama was being interviewed by Prince Harry (for some reason), who dug deep into the pressing issues of our time.
Prince Harry asked him to decide between boxers or briefs (wouldn’t say), Kim Kardashian or Khloe Kardashian (wouldn’t pick) and Harry or William (“William right now,” he said, prompting a chuckle).
Unable to select an underwear style, a Kardashian or a prince, the 44th president of the United States was dangerously close to slipping into irrelevance.
He also asked him to pick between Jordan and James.
Throwing a bone to the haters, Obama admitted his Chicago bias. But that was unnecessary. You don’t need to be from Chicago to see the truth. You don’t need to be a president, either, but it’s nice to have one on the side of Truth, and I don’t see how anybody could argue for Lebron at this point.
