With NBA All-Star Weekend taking over New Orleans this weekend, President Barack Obama weighs in on two of basketball’s greats, Michael Jordan and Lebron James.

During an interview with Charles Barkley, the POTUS said that though he has loyalty to his fellow Chicagoan, the “King” is extraordinarily talented.

“Now, I’m a Chicago guy, and Mike will always be the guy, for me, just because that was a magical moment for the city,” Obama said. “And he was a champion. Mike is now retired. LeBron [James], when you look at him, you think he might be able to play at a high level for another seven, eight, 10 years. He’s 29 years old. In terms of every aspect of the game, LeBron has a chance to be as good as anybody.”

During the interview, Obama said he had never seen a person other than James with his amount of athletic ability.

Obama invited James’s team, the Miami Heat, to the White House earlier this year after the team’s championship win.

“You know LeBron. I know LeBron. When you are standing next to him, and then you watch him close up, I’ve never seen somebody that size, that fast, who can jump that high, who is that strong, who has that much basketball savvy all in one package,” Obama said of the NBA Finals’ MVP.
