Damon Weaver’s interview of President Barack Obama included some basketball moments.

Damon Weaver: Everybody knows that you love basketball. I think it would be cool to have a president who could dunk. Can you dunk?

President Obama: Not anymore. I used to when I was young, but I’m almost 50 now so, your legs are the first thing to go.

Damon Weaver: My buddy Dwayne Wade promised me if you gave me the interview he would play you in a one on one basketball game, but he’s not sure if he would let you score. Would you be willing to play him in a one-on-one basketball game?

President Obama: I would play Dwayne Wade, and if Dwayne was here, I’m sorry to hear that he was trash talking about his game. I’ve got to admit though Dwayne Wade is a little bit better at basketball than I am, so I might rather have him on my team playing against someone else than playing against him.

You’ll recall that 11-year-old Weaver got press credentials through KEC-TV News in order to interview President Obama regarding education. The sixth grader attends the Kathryn E. Cunningham/Canal Point Elementary school, in Pahokee, Florida.
