Obama on the Heat: Give them time

What's up with the Heat?

It's kind of The Question in the NBA right now. Everyone is wondering how to fix the team that was supposed to destroy and humilate everything in its path. So naturally, it was time to get the leader of the free world's opinion on the matter.

In an interview with Barbara Walters, President Barack Obama shared his thoughts:

The message from The Leader: The team needs some time to gell and get to know each other. He even envoked the always cliche "No I in Team" clause.

Miami dropped yet another game Wednesday, this time losing to Orlando, putting them at 8-7 on the season and losers of three straight. The sky kind of feels like it's falling around the Heat, but the president said, give them some time. It's not about how you play in November, as much as how you play three months from now. No doubt that the Heat's current play could create some roster shakeups, possible coaching shakeups and potentially affect their seeding in the playoffs.

But it's too early to completely panic. Why? Because the president said so.

Obama on the Heat: Give them time

INTERVIEWER:  How much time, Mr. President?
PRESIDENT:  Not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4....
INTERVIEWER:  I'm asking how much time, Mr. President, not how much not time.
PRESIDENT:  Not 5, not 6, not 7.

Obama on the Heat: Give them time

Looks like Obama knows as much about basketball as being the President. Maybe he can coach the Heat after he loses the next election. What a fool.
