President Obama praises the Spurs

Looks like we know Obama's favorite NBA team. While hosting the team at the White House for winning the 2014 NBA championship, he said that the Spurs are "a great metaphor for what America should be all about" 

The President also said in a bold statement, that the Spurs have become the United Nations of basketball, that they show how basketball has become such an international sport. He also weighed in on how the Spurs are the first team to hire a WNBA star, Becky Hammon who is a full time coach for the Spurs. 

The Spurs defeated the Heat last season in the NBA finals who had won 2 straight and were gunning for a third. A huge accomplishment for the Spurs winning their 5th NBA title.
