The San Antonio Spurs were honored at the White House today for their fifth NBA Championship win last year. The team presented President Barack Obama with a POTUS Spurs team jersey, and judging from the beaming smile, Obama just might make use of it during those White House pick up games with international dignitaries. 

Here's a better look at the presidential jersey. 

Anyone want to venture a guess as to what Kawhi Leonard is thinking?

While today's event was to congratulate the Spurs on their 2014 Championship win, Obama, a self-proclaimed Bulls fan who previously praised the Spurs on an ESPN radio show last month, didn't shy away from cracking a lighthearted joke about the age of some of the team's star players.  



In other Washington-related Spurs news, SA Representative Lloyd Doggett also praised the Spurs on the floor of the House of Representatives today. Watch his speech below.
