Obama hosted the Warriors at the White House once during his eight years in office, and met with the team during their trip to Washington D.C. this past season. Steph Curry reportedly facilitated the meeting, continuing the friendship they developed during Obama's second term. When Obama visited the Bay Area this year, he stopped by Ayesha Curry's restaurant on President's Day and shared the stage with Steph at an Obama Foundation event.
If Obama and Drake meet courtside, there is no word if he'll tell the rapper that he thinks Kendrick Lamar is better.
