The Spurs visited the White House on Monday, where President Obama congratulated them on their 2014 championship.

Obama found a way to poke a little fun at the Spurs, and at himself.  

"Let’s face it, a little while back, people were saying the Spurs were past their prime. Not just old, but kind of boring," Obama said, according to The Washington Post. "Now they’re fresh and exciting — which is basically the exact opposite of what happens to presidents."

Obama also joked about the way Gregg Popovich rests his players, saying he considered sending Vice President Joe Biden to meet the Spurs instead. That's not a bad idea. Biden has to make himself useful somehow.
