Like every other Bulls fan, Barack Obama likes the look of LeBron James in Chicago

Well, probably less than William Wesley. But he does want him there, and he said as much to Marv Albert in a television interview set to air on TNT on Tuesday night (at 5 p.m.).

“You know, like I said, I don’t want to meddle,” Obama told TNT. “I will say this: (Derrick) Rose, Joakim Noah it’s a pretty good core. You know, you could see LeBron fitting in pretty well there.”

It’s a safe bet the president likes the whole idea of getting Chris Bosh in a sign-and-trade for Luol Deng as well. And Phil Jackson coming back as coach. And getting a time machine and brining back the 1995 version of Toni Kukoc to play on the wing. Becuase if anyone has access to a top-secret time machine, you can bet it’s the president.

    So here’s my take on things. While everyone is looking at the Lebron-Chicago picture, I think there’s another piece to this puzzle that everyone is forgetting about and thats Phil Jackson. There was a story last week about there are no guarantees that Phil will return next season to the Lakers and if he did he would most certainly take a pay cut. So where am I going with this? Lebron and D-Wade headed to Chicago who coincidentally has no coach and also coincidentally Phil could leave L.A. It all makes sense to me. Phil has nothing left to do at this point except coach another prodigy and lead Chicago back to the promise land. Picture this: Rose, Wade, Lebron, Noah, and some unnamed center. It would almost be cheating. Is anybody else seeing this shape up?
