U.S. President Barack Obama receives a team jersey and autographed basketball from guards Derek Fisher (L) and Kobe Bryant (C) as Obama hosts the 2009 National Basketball Association Champion Los Angeles Lakers in the East Room of the White House in Washington on January 25, 2010.

It looks like the Lakers could be getting invited around for a pickup game in Washington that they can't refuse. President Barack Obama will honor the Lake Show next week during their road trip that sees them play the Washington Wizards on Tuesday, and surely Barack will be on hand for that game as well in his favourite courtside seats. Obama honored the two time champions at the White House last year for their first 'chip (see photo above) but will do this years honoring during the Lakers appearance at a Boys and Girls club that the President will attend also. This will happen a day before the Wizards game but it is unsure whether Obama will lace them up and shoot hoops with the Lakers while watching that bust lip he received in a pickup game last week. Kobe, Gasol and Fisher where part of the current and former NBA superstars that Obama brought together for a private game in August and surely the hoops fan would love to go against Kobe yet again, triple teaming the legend with two of his presidential aids.
