Ray Allen golfs with President Barack Obama (Instagram)

Aug 11, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

Ray Allen loves golf. LOVES it. Allen can be a bit of a compulsive personality and the sport and its need for practice and repetition blend with his nature. He golfs whenever he can (which you can totally do in Cleveland in the winter… oh, wait).

Allen got out on the course this week with Barack Obama for a round while the president was in Florida. And probably beat him (Obama doesn’t really have the time to dedicate to his game right now, few other things on the plate). If you’re wondering who they other guys are, that is NBA personality Ahmad Rashad and Cyrus Walker.

I’m sure this stroll and lovely game helped Allen focus on his free agency decision.

      Please continue. I would like to hear your “theories” on how the riots in Missouri are President Obama’s fault. I am not sure how you can blame him for Ebola in Africa, but I am sure you will try.

      • libertyman62 - Aug 11, 2014 at 5:09 PM

        It’s Obama’s “sons” who are doing the rioting, Wesley.

        & please keep being the moron that believes the media.

        please go on…

        If Obama had a son, he would look like one of the St. Louis looters.

      There goes my respect for Ray Allen.

    Great way to pollute a sports site with BO.

    Who gives a crap what BHO does. He has no clue about to lead this country. Let him stay on the golf course with the rest of the clowns he plays with.

    Excellent use of the President’s time.

    • libertyman62 - Aug 11, 2014 at 5:15 PM

      Priorities, bro….PRIORITIES!

        You do know that your boy, G. W. Bush, took the most vacation in Presidential history, right?

        Everyone has the right to a political opinion, but we should try to keep it to political blogs.

      • libertyman62 - Aug 11, 2014 at 7:45 PM

        Fanofthegame79, GW Bush wasn’t my “boy”. I never voted for him nor did I like him. He was NOT a Constitutional Conservative, & he expanded the size of the federal government way beyond its Constitutional limits.

        Obama is GW Bush on steroids. The only good thing I can say about Bush over Obama is that Bush didn’t spit in the faces of our friends (Israel, for example) like Obama does.

    Stop blaming the President for all your problems.

    • philtration - Aug 11, 2014 at 9:16 PM

      You don’t understand….
      Weak frightened losers HAVE to play the victim otherwise they might have to look in the mirror some day.
      They need a scapegoat for their pathetic life.

      Funny how the very same people that come here and to Pro Football Talk just LOVE watching blacks play basketball and football but get their panties all in a bunch when one of them gets elected as President not once but twice and by big margins at that.
      Going to cry when a woman gets elected in 2016 too?
      I am sure that you were in a state of ignorant bliss while Dubya was screwing up every single thing he touched.

      Put on your Ted Nugent t shirts and cry in your beer about how it is Obama’s fault that you can’t get a woman.

    Wait wait wait he is in Boston with the president playing golf……………………… OK!

  7. ProBasketballPundit - Aug 11, 2014 at 4:17 PM

    For a POTUS Obama sure does play a lot of golf & basketball. Now I have no hate for the man’s recreation but he should really take a page out of book Costanza and at least seem like he’s frustrated and busy all the time.

  8. antistratfordian - Aug 11, 2014 at 4:45 PM

    That’s pretty cool. I’ve met Barry Obama actually and a picture of that was used on his site. Yeah, I’m proud of it – I think it’s kind of neat. Sue me! But the rumors are true – he has really soft hands. Women love that, but men are like, “pansy.”

    Allen can always fly down to Florida in January to play golf like everybody else does.

    • ProBasketballPundit - Aug 12, 2014 at 6:11 PM

      If you can make me laugh out loud you get a thumbs up no matter what you said.

  9. vols84 - Aug 11, 2014 at 5:04 PM

    NBC is pretty left leaning and not ashamed of it either.

  10. bubbalynch - Aug 11, 2014 at 5:57 PM

    What’s with you SOB’s that always got to say something about the President? Can’t the man enjoy some leisure time? Everything he does or doesn’t do bugs some of you no matter what. How is your married life by the way?

    • sportsfan18 - Aug 11, 2014 at 8:11 PM

      Some leisure time?

      Every day is leisure time for him…

    Nice to see that the murder of thousands of innocents in Iraq hasn’t hindered Obama’s fund raising, golf or vacation plans.

  12. txmade06 - Aug 11, 2014 at 6:30 PM

    Obama prob changes the rules as the game goes on..

  13. fishfiletkray - Aug 11, 2014 at 6:31 PM

    He’s actually in Conecticut playing golf for his tournament.

  14. whitey11177 - Aug 11, 2014 at 6:54 PM

    “And probably beat him (Obama doesn’t really have the time to dedicate to his game right now, few other things on the plate)”. Why was this sentence in the article?

  15. onlyavoice - Aug 11, 2014 at 9:21 PM

    Well, he can say he golfed with a president,
    even though he’s considered the worse president ever.
    Obama must also feel very belittled when he ask’s his homies what part of his policies made them
    vote for him & they all respond, You’re Black.

    • Wesley Clark - Aug 12, 2014 at 12:02 AM

      Wow. In spite of your grammatical inadequacies, I’ll bite. What criteria are you using to judge Obama as the “worse” President ever? Terrible economic policies? Herbert Hoover laps Obama. In fact the numbers back up that Obama’s policies have actually improved the economy. National Defense? No terrorist attacks on American soil since he has been President. Foreign Policy? Bush Doctrine had the United States involved in two terrible wars. This should in no way be construed as an opinion that Obama has been anything other than a mediocre President. There is no way, if you are being honest, that you can state the Obama has been the “worse” President ever. There have been far worse. You are either being dishonest or ignorant. Neither option is very appealing.

    Interesting that Ahmad Rashad was mentioned on this post here as a “basketball personality”, when in fact Rashad had an 11 year NFL career.

    • steelerdynasty2010 - Aug 11, 2014 at 10:27 PM

      you know you used to watch you some nba’s inside stuff!

      • hojo20 - Aug 12, 2014 at 12:44 AM

        Yep, guilty as charged.

  17. seasickcecil - Aug 12, 2014 at 12:57 AM

    “Put on your Ted Nugent t shirts and cry in your beer about how it is Obama’s fault that you can’t get a woman.” Actually Obamas not the reason they can’t get a woman. The real reason is well………just ask the guys at their gym.
