President Obama appeared on Sway in the Morning to chop it up on a number of topics, including sports.
Arguably the most active and sports savvy Commander-in-Chief in history, Obama offered his picks to win the 2017 Super Bowl and NBA Finals.
POTUS began by choosing the Warriors as the next World Champions, in part due to the addition of Kevin Durant.
Just because [Kevin] Durant, that addition, I just think they have too much firepower.
Moving on to the Super Bowl, Obama says it’s hard to bet against Tom Brady and the Patriots as he doesn’t see any particularly strong teams right now. He predicts a rematch between the Patriots and the Seahawks with the same results as Super Bowl 49.
Ever plugged in to pop culture and music, POTUS went on to offer his opinion on hip hop. While acknowledging that Chance the Rapper and Kendrick Lamar are making waves along with Drake, Obama says that Jay Z is “still the king” before adding, “same with Kanye”.
