The Golden State Warriors travelled to DC earlier this week to take on the Washington Wizards.
That game wasn't their biggest moment of their trip, however. Instead, that came when the reigning NBA Champions took a visit to the White House and got to meet the President.
President Obama, a noted basketball fan who regularly talks about the Chicago Bulls and does his own March Madness bracket, seemed to enjoy having the Warriors round, regularly joking with the team.

Obama opened his speech by name-dropping Riley Curry - Steph's daughter - saying he wished she had made the journey.
"Now, let me begin by saying I was hoping that Riley Curry would be here today -- [laughter] -- to share the podium with me, but I guess I'm going to have to get media training some other day," he said.
The President would go on to praise Curry after his 51-point performance against the Wizards, saying that the point guard was "clowning" on them.
Obama then turned his attention to Klay Thompson and took a dig at Curry in doing so, saying that the shooting guard has a prettier shot.
"There's the other Splash Brother, Klay, who dropped 37 points in a quarter, and whose jump shot is actually a little prettier. I'm just saying."
His closing part was to praise the whole team and say exactly what every fan around the world thinks when they watch the Warriors on top of their game.
"It's beautiful to watch when they're working on all cylinders."
