Pippen plays Obama in Election Day pickup game


Pippen plays Obama in Election Day pickup game

Tuesday will mark one of the most important days in Barack Obama's life. So how did the President spend his time? By playing some hoops against Scottie Pippen, of course.

Obama invited the Bulls legend to play in his traditional Election Day basketball game on a court about a mile from the United Center.

"When he first entered the gym, if you hadn't looked over to see him, you wouldn't have noticed," Pippen said of Tuesday, his first meeting with the President. "It was surprisingly low-key. He just came in and started shaking hands. He's someone who is very easy to approach."

Marty Nesbitt, a mutual friend, set the meeting up.

But the question on everybody's mind is, how was the President's game on the hardwood?

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

It helps when you have the Secret Service running blocker for you, too.

"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."

Denver Nuggets fall in me vs. Nuggets challenge

The Denver Nuggets have been hot of late, winning seven of their last 10 games against pretty stiff competition. However, they were no match in a tough virtual matchup on Friday night. 

CSN Chicago associate producer Adam Yingst took on Nikola Jokic and company in #MeVsNuggets, a challenge in which the person watching must eat more chicken nuggets than Denver has field goals. 

Fighting a cold, Yingst powered through 41 chicken nuggets to seal the victory over Denver. If that isn't reminiscent of the Michael Jordan flu game, then we don't know what is. 

Watch this impressive accomplishment and catch some funny outtakes in the video above.
