You work hard your whole life, you become a professional basketball player, you win the NBA championship, you attend a White House ceremony honoring that feat—and the headlines say, "Khloe Kardashian meets President Obama."

Obama received a No. 1 Lakers jersey bearing his name and even teased Magic Johnson.

"I got a kick out of that,” Johnson told the Los Angeles Times. “What can you say when the president of the United States can trash-talk you? Normally I have a good comeback, but this time, I had to let him slide." (More President Obama stories.)
