Barack Obama can straight up ball as ‘MyCareer’ player in NBA 2K17 (vid)

Barack Obama, you may have noticed, is no longer the President. Instead of dealing with the daily grind of being the leader of the free world, Obama is now enjoying some well-earned free time, which recently involved going kitesurfing with Richard Branson in the British Virgin Islands.

But as anyone who knows anything about Obama, his first true athletic love is basketball. While his game may not be mind-blowing in real life — although he can more than handle himself on the court — a virtual version of the former POTUS can straight up ball.

Thanks to YouTube user NykeFaller, we can now bear witness of what Obama may have been able to accomplish had he pursued basketball career instead of politics. Okay, probably not, but … you know.

NykeFaller accomplished the remarkable feat of transforming the former Commander-in-Chief into the dominant Basketballer-in-Chief by utilizing “MyCareer” player mode on “NBA 2K17,” according to Kotaku.

Witness the magic.

Slick handles, huge hops for rim-shaking dunks, some swagger and an overall fantastic all-around game? Impressive.

Can virtual Obama dominate the floor in NBA 2K17? Yes he can.
