Obama Misses 20 of 22 Shots at White House Basketball Court Easter Sunday
According to pool reporters covering the annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House, Obama's shooting percentage was worse than Gonzaga's! As part of the White House Easter celebration, Obama took to the outdoor court hear the White House to shoot hoops with children who were invited to the event. Kids were asked to take sides by standing on either side of the free-throw line. One side was kids who thought he would make it, the other miss. One boy refused to budge from the "miss" line, and sure enough, counting free throws, layups and jumpers, Obama finished 2 for 22.
Ten-year old Kahron Campbell of Landover, Maryland was called in by Obama to "help him out" and the boy made a lay-up. Obama, shooting just after him, missed. Kahron said of his adventure:
."He couldn't make one. I had to help him out."
