FLASHBACK: The Lakers visit Barack Obama at the White House as NBA champions in 2009 [VIDEO]

The Miami Heat visited the White House today after winning the NBA championship last June, so I thought it would be a good time to look back at the last time when our very own Los Angeles Lakers last made it to Barack Obama’s crib.

Yes, the Lakers also met Obama in 2010 after winning the title, but they didn’t go to the White House, so this was the last time they were actually in the world-famous building.

Things to note during this entertaining video:

  • Pau has big hair
  • Farmar looks really, rEARlly young
  • Kobe can’t stop smiling
  • Obama owned Magic
  • Bynum used to actually play basketball
  • Mbenga looks like a Secret Service agent
  • Morrison has rings

Hopefully, it won’t be too long until the Lakers are back in the White House once again.
