President Obama projects Lakers as NBA champions

CBSSports.com wire reports

President Barack Obama is projecting a Los Angeles Lakers win in the NBA Finals.

Obama tells TNT in an interview that he's been surprised by Boston, but believes with Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and coach Phil Jackson "the Lakers are looking pretty good."

In the interview that aired Tuesday before Game 4 of the Western Conference finals, Obama also praises the Suns for taking a stand against Arizona's immigration law, says it'd be great if Washington got John Wall with the No. 1 pick, and that ticket prices would be his biggest concern if he was NBA commissioner for a day.

The interview was conducted by broadcaster Marv Albert on the White House basketball court.
