President Obama Asks About LeBron James in Interview With Cleveland Reporter

Posted By on Tue, Jun 7, 2011 at 10:13 AM


President Obama sat down with Channel 5's Leon Bibb to talk about the auto industry, jobs, unemployment, NASA, education and more as he begins a soft-launch re-election campaign by getting his message out in key states, like Ohio.

The full interview is below, but what is not included is the exchange between President Obama and Bibb to begin the sitdown. According to The Hill, it went like this:

“Is Cleveland still rooting against Miami?” the president asked WEWS reporter Leon Bibb.

“Yeah, we're working on that,” replied Bibb, who reportedly chuckled before asking Obama, a basketball fanatic, which team he thinks will win the NBA Finals.

Obama said he expects the Heat to win the title.

Way to know your market, Mr. President. Video after the jump.
