President Obama took to Twitter on Thursday to discuss basketball.

When asked with the hashtag “askpotus” whether he would choose between Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan or LeBron James, the 44th President of the United States went with his hometown hero.

“love em all, but as a bulls fan got to go with mj,” Obama tweeted.

The president also weighed in on LSU freshman forward Ben Simmons in the tweet.

“in baton rouge, just met lsu freshman ben simmons - will be great,” he added.

In an appearance earlier on Thursday at Baton Rouge’s McKinley High School, Obama gave a shout out to Simmons. 

The president also stated at the appearance that Simmons’ father Dave played basketball in Australia with Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, and added, “Ben is better.”
