Sounds like President Obama likes to talk big on the basketball court just like most sports fans. During last week's appearance on Ellen, Lakers player Kobe Bryant shared that whenever he and Obama play basketball with other players, the president kept hyping up his favorite NBA team, the Chicago Bulls.


"He talks a lot of trash," Bryant told Ellen DeGeneres. "Bulls this, Bulls that…I'm like, 'My goodness…'."


That said, the NBA star had to admit that Obama is "very, very good" on the court.  


In addition to the president's basketball skills and Bryant's uncertainty about making an appearance at the next Olympic games, he talked about the Lakers' newest team member Dwight Howard.


"He's one of the most dominant defensive players that the game has ever seen, and so now we add him to the talent that we have, and it's going to be exciting. I'm really, really looking forward to it," Bryant said.
