President Barack Obama likes the Lakers in six

Although President Barack Obama has far more pressing things to attend to, it seems he just can't help himself when it comes to basketball prognostication.

The first fan is picking the Los Angeles Lakers to triumph over the Orlando Magic in six games in the NBA finals.

Obama, who is a big basketball fan, was asked who he expects to win as he walked out of the White House on his way to the Marine One helicopter.

Over the loud whine of the chopper, Obama stopped, took a few steps back toward reporters, and said, "Lakers in six."
You'll remember that Obama picked the North Carolina Tar Heels to win the NCAA tournament back in March. Much to this Spartan's dismay, they did.

What are your thoughts on this Lebron-less series? The casual NBA fan in me seems to agree with the president on this one.
