Obama Jokes About Mario Chalmers Getting Yelled At By Teammates (VIDEO)

Now often-yelled-at Heat point guard Mario Chalmers knows who to call the next time his teammates berate him. President Barack Obama has his back.

While Chalmers and his Miami Heat teammates were visiting the White House to be honored for winning their second straight NBA championship, Obama joked about the team's habit of yelling at the point guard .

"With that I think we should take a picture, but we should make it quick before one of these guys starts yelling at Mario," Obama said as his remarks were drawing to a close. "I mean sometimes it's just a bad pass guys it's not Mario's fault."

James and Wade's reactions were priceless.
