“These sleeves get tight,” Obama said. “Can I tear these out? Can I rip them?”
Before all of the fun outside, the Cavs were given a private tour of the White House and spent time with Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
“The day’s been amazing,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. “I mean, it ranks right up with winning a championship for me. Get a chance to come to the White House, meet the President of the United States, meet the First Lady. Having our team here, whole Russell Wilson Authentic Jersey organization. I mean, this is a great moment and I’m very honored, very humbled by the whole day.”
The Cavs also met with Attorney General Loretta Lynch and senior adviser Valerie Jarrett in the Roosevelt Room to brainstorm ways in which law enforcement can strengthen its relationship within local communities.
“I was just trying to be myself and help my team win while doing what I can on both sides of the floor while bringing some energy,” Curry said. “Obviously confidence is everything, so I have to keep that consistency.”
Curry was feeling it yet again. After knocking down three triples in a row in the third quarter, just to try his luck, he raced up the court and launched a shot just past half court that clanked off the front of the rim.
The traveling Warriors fans were waiting to explode out of their seats had the shot gone in.
“I’ve seen it all [from Steph], but it’s still entertaining as hell,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “That one shot he took [near half court], I’ve seen him do it many times, but it never gets old.
“I think [Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian] Lillard and Steph are probably the only two that have that sort of ridiculous range.”
The Warriors’ franchise point guard felt otherwise about that half-court heave.
“Honesty it was a dumb shot,” Curry said. “I Shaun Alexander Authentic Jersey probably should have heat checked from somewhere closer. I had Draymond [Green] egging me on the whole way down the court. So it was like that demon and angel on your shoulders: Which one are you going to listen to? Obviously it would have been fun to make it, but I think I’m like 0-for-2 on the year, 0-for-3 on the year on shots like that, so I might need to reassess that.”
