President Barack Obama earned notoriety during his eight years in the White House for being an avid basketball fan — and for all the trash talk that comes with being one.
So who was the poor NBA player who was subjected to disses by the leader of the free world? Why, none other than Knicks center Joakim Noah.
As a matter of routine, the NBA reviews all flagrant fouls — Pachulia was assessed a flagrant foul 1 on the play — but is expected look into the totality of the incident, ESPN reported.
He hit me kind of hard, Westbrook told reporters after the game. But it’s all right. I’m gonna get his ass back. Straight up.
League disciplinarian Kiki Vandeweghe declined to comment on the incident or the league’s review of it.
I thought it was a good steal, honestly, because I had the ball in my hands, Pachulia told reporters. Officials called a foul; there’s nothing you can do. A foul is a foul. If it was a hard foul, it was a hard foul. There is nothing you can do. So you just move on. If he got hurt, that’s fine, too. It’s part of the game.

But I felt great today watching the march in protest to how he has conducted himself, because it tells me hey, I really do live in a country where a whole lot of people care. And we have to be vigilant to make sure that, although we all hope that he does good things for our country, that we don’t get, you know, embarrassed by him, and roll back liberties that have been worked for, for so long in so many different areas. So, I think that’s enough to make somebody think I sound terrible.
