VIDEO: Charles Barkley interviews President Obama

By Royce Young | NBA writer

Charles Barkley sat down with Barack Obama to discuss the NBA, all-time greats and a few other things.

Among the interesting things Obama said, he talked about LeBron James in relation to being an all-timer.

“You know LeBron. I know LeBron. When you are standing next to him, and then you watch him close up, I've never seen somebody that size, that fast, who can jump that high, who is that strong, who has that much basketball savvy all in one package.

“So we don't yet know where he is going to be," Obama said. "Now, I'm a Chicago guy and Mike will always be the guy, for me, just because that was a magical moment for the city. And he was a champion. Mike is now retired. LeBron, when you look at him, you think he might be able to play at a high level for another seven, eight, 10 years. He's 29 years old. In terms of every aspect of the game, LeBron has a chance to be as good as anybody.”

Yes, yes he does.
