The Warriors are 45-4, but Obama's jokes are forever undefeated

BY foxsports • February 4, 2016

Over the past eight years, every team that won an NBA championship has had the honor and privilege of visiting President Barack Obama at the White House. Along with that awesomeness, each team has also been at the mercy of his amazing dad jokes.

Today, the Golden State Warriors are no different. 

Though it technically wasn't after they won a championship, once upon a time Obama shattered former Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo's confidence (via SLAM):

In early March some of the guys went to the museum of Fine Arts for a fund-raiser and got to hang with President Barack Obama. Everyone was a little bit in awe. The President turns to Ray, points at Rondo, and says, “Hey, Ray, why don’t you teach this kid how to shoot?” Everyone starts laughing. KG told me he saw the look on Rondo’s face and the kid was devastated, embarrassed. Dissed by the President, even though I’m sure Obama didn’t mean any harm. Rondo smiled and went along with all of it, but KG told me he could see it in his eyes. It bothered Rondo. It killed him. The next day Rondo shot the ball horribly. He stopped taking shots after that. He’s so sensitive. I think it was a real jolt to hear the outside perception of a basketball fan who happens to be the President of the United States. It messed with his mind. I’m sure of it.

Then former Miami Heat point guard Mario Chalmers had to sit there and take it:

The Warriors thought they were bulletproof, but, in reality, nobody is safe from Obama's razor-sharp edge.
