AG Holder cries `foul’ on Obama’s basketball skill

Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Attorney General Eric Holder says President Barack Obama may want to rethink whether he's gotten better as a basketball player.

Holder joked Wednesday at a judicial conference that no one comes near the president when he drives to the basket because he has Secret Service agents around him.

Holder questioned who would dare touch the president as he plays.

The attorney general says Obama thinks his moves have improved with age but it might be for another reason.

Holder, responding to a question about his own basketball skills, got plenty of laughs with his remarks as he spoke at the annual Sixth Circuit Judicial Conference in Columbus.
