Everyone knows that Obama likes to play basketball and is a fan of the game. Obama is also known for using sports’ analogies to get his point across.Obama is quoted by a New York Times article saying, that he is the Miami Heat, while Republican nominee Mitt Romney is Jeremy Lin.“No matter what moves Mr. Romney made, he and his team were going to cut him off and block him at every turn. We’re the Miami Heat, and he’s Jeremy Lin.”It’s easy to speculate on what Obama means as he compares his team to the Heat. The Democrats are the reigning political party and the Miami Heat are the current NBA champs.

A quote from earlier this year suggests that the commander-in-chief may not take his opponent's chances in November all that seriously.
With Jeremy Lin headed off to Houston to play for the Rockets, he and Rajon Rondo are no longer division rivals. The two point guards will only see each other twice next season instead of the four times they would play if Lin was still on the Knicks. But there is still a potential rivalry brewing there if Lin can step up and play to his potential.
Rondo gives a lot of credit...

Liverpool is 0-2-1 through three games and off to its worst start in 50 years. Partial team owner LeBron James supposedly gave the team some incentive to turn the season around by promising them a party in Las Vegas co-hosted by him and Kanye West if they won it all, but it appears that the story was false.

From the New York Times: “No matter what moves Mr. Romney made, the president said, he and his team were going to cut him off and block him at every turn. ‘We’re the Miami Heat and he’s Jeremy Lin,’ Mr. Obama said, according to the aide.”
