With free agency taking over the basketball world right now, little interviews are getting lost in the shuffle. Like, what does Russell Westbrook think about playing under a franchise owned by president Barack Obama?
Well, believe it or not, a hard-hitting journalist - who probably wanted to use the topic as a segway to really ask about Kevin Durant - begged that very question.
A couple of weeks ago, Obama intermated that he would like to explore the possibility of owning an NBA franchise when he finishes up in office next January.

Whether he was part of an investment group or if he has the funds to go it alone is up for debate, as if where he would eventually end up.
A TMZ reporter caught up with Westbrook making his way to his car in L.A. - his hometown - and managed to fit in some quick fire questions.
Asked if he thought the president would make a good owner, Westbrook responded with a vague: "Probably."
The TMZ reporter then followed up that question by asking if Westbrook would like to play under Obama, to which the All-Star Thunder guard replied with a smile: "Who wouldn't wanna play for the president?"
After confirming that he hadn't had any previous dealings with the man in the White House, the reporter tried his luck by asking Westbrook where he thought his Thunder teammate, KD, would sign.
He got a closed car door in his face for his troubles. It must be noted that there is nothing to suggest that Obama would take over the Thunder at this point.
