President Obama dropped several zingers and one-liners on the Golden State Warriors during their White House visit Thursday.
"I was hoping that Riley Curry would be here today to share the podium with me," Obama said to open the event. "But I'll have to get my media training some other day."
With 51 points from Stephen Curry, the Warriors overwhelmed the Wizards 134-121 on Wednesday night to stay on track for a chance to break the 1995-96 Bulls' NBA record for most regular-season wins. Being a huge Bulls fan, Obama found a clever way to spin it, involving Warriors coach Steve Kerr:

Although Riley wasn't there, Steph brought wife Ayesha with him for the visit:

The visit did include one serious note, as Kerr thanked Obama for his efforts on gun control.
"I know it's a very hot topic," Kerr said. "There's a great divide, but I'm on his side."
