CHICAGO (AP) -- Former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen says President Barack Obama has a "smooth game" on the basketball court.
Pippen described playing basketball with the president Tuesday afternoon in a story on the Chicago Bulls website. He played on Obama's team in an Election Day game complete with referees and a running clock. Pippen and Obama's team won the game.
Pippen says the president was "very easy to approach" and says Obama isn't an overly aggressive player, probably because he doesn't want to get hurt.
Pippen says it was the first time he met the president and called it "a very special experience."
Pippen was a member of six Chicago Bulls championship teams. He is now a senior adviser to Chicago Bulls President and COO Michael Reinsdorf.
