During the defending NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers‘ trip to the White House on Thursday afternoon to visit President Barack Obama, the United States’ current commander-in-chief simply couldn’t help but throw some subtle shade at this past season’s Golden State Warriors squad.
Obama, who is a vocal Chicago Bulls and Chicago sports fan, thanked the Cavs for taking down a team that had the best regular-season record ever in NBA history. That’s because there had been an ongoing debate that the 2015-16 Warriors were the greatest team of all-time, that is, until they blew a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals.
With the Warriors unable to cap a historic regular season with a Larry O’Brien trophy, Obama’s certainly thankful that the 1995-96 Bulls can be cemented as the greatest team of all-time.
