President Obama is a noted basketball enthusiast and knows what he is talking about, especially when it comes to Chicago based sports. On Thursday, the President took part in a question and answer on Twitter featuring the hashtag #AskPotus. One of the questions which was tossed his way was asking him to pick from Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan or LeBron James. Instead of diplomatically ducking the question he (not surprisingly) went for Michael Jordan, and added that as a Bulls fan he had to pick that way.
love em all, but as a bulls fan got to go with mj. in baton rouge, just met lsu freshman ben simmons – will be great https://t.co/Du1gflVYp4

It should be noted that the question actually never asked who was the greatest of all-time, but we think it is safe to say that it was implied.
