NBA Celeb MVP Arne Duncan

Obama Picks Me

In White House Basketball Games

2/17/2014 4:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

He CRUSHED it at the NBA Celebrity All-Star game ... so it's no wonder Secretary of Education Arne Duncan says President Obama always takes him on his team during White House pick-up games.

If you missed the game ... Duncan was a STUD -- chalking up 20 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists during his MVP performance.

When he arrived back in D.C. on Monday, Duncan hadn't let the success get to his head -- and gave props to Kevin Hart (who initially won the award based on the fan vote, but gave it Duncan because he deserved it).

He also praised Obama as a "good teammate."

For the record, Duncan played college ball at Harvard before spending some time in a pro league in Australia.

Bottom line -- dude can ball.

Have you ever noticed we never never see Obama shooting basketball or swinging a golf club? No video no pictures. It is my guess Obama is not an athlete because if he was any good the media would be showing us how great he is. Remember when Obama went bowling? Gutter ball on every throw. The media protects Obama because they don't want to be a called racists.

US has some financial problems, unemployment is on the rise, countries hate us, etc... And Obama is playing a pick up game of basketball. In not saying he will have all the answers, but maybe instead of playing games, maybe he can meet up with advisors and help find solutions for America's problems. That's why he was voted in. It wasn't so he can entertain jay-z and play basketball. Obama please try to help America.
