Here's Barack Obama coaching Steph Curry and beating him at Connect Four

It’s as brilliant as it sounds, trust us.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA loves his basketball.

So, it was always going to be good when he was paired with the best player in the NBA right now – the Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry – for a campaign to promote the mentoring of young people.

The loyal Chicago Bulls fan hosted Curry at the White House and advised him on a few important things – how to put together a solid CV, the perfect Connect Four strategy and the definitive jump shot.

Inevitably, it’s all kinds of wonderful.
