(WSCR) Before defeating Mitt Romney in yesterday’s Presidential Election, President Barack Obama took some time away from campaigning to play some hoops.

So, who did he call to join him? None other than Bulls’ legend and Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen.

“He’s not an overly aggressive player, but he takes what the defense gives him,” Pippen said of the president’s game. “He’s got a smooth game. He probably used to be a little more aggressive, but obviously he doesn’t want to get hurt.”

During a pick-up game two years ago, Obama had to get 12 stitches on his lips after a contact play. Now, however, it doesn’t appear the president will be involved in any contact plays.

“I thought the lanes opened up when Michael Jordan used to drive,” Pippen said with a laugh. “I used to be like, ‘Wow.’ But then I saw the president drive, I thought they were bringing the whole motorcade through the lane it was so wide.”

Check out some pictures from the president’s pick-up game below!
