The Miami Heat’s 27-game-win streak came to end last week at the hands of the Chicago Bulls. The incredible run was the second longest in NBA history, just five games shy of the record the 72 Lakers held with 33 games. Even President Obama, an avid basketball fan,  had to weigh in on the Heat’s loss to the Bulls while in Miami to discuss his economic plan. THE PRESIDENT: Now, before we get started, I’ve got to get into a sticky subject right off the bat. I know you guys aren’t happy with my Chicago Bulls. AUDIENCE: Booo – THE PRESIDENT:  But I just want you to know the Heat are going to be just fine. They’re going to be okay. (Applause.) They are playing basketball the right way. The Hurricanes — they had a great season — no, no, they deserve a big round of applause. (Applause.) Tonight you’ve got Florida and Florida Gulf Coast going at it. (Applause.) One of them will go to the Elite Eight. So, let’s face it, Florida is the center of basketball right now. (Applause.) But I’m not here to talk about hoops. I’m here to talk about one of the plans that I put forward in my State of the Union address — a plan to put people to work rebuilding America.     Welp, we know the outcome of last night’s All Florida match up! The clock struck midnight and Cinderella has return home. Dunk City, it was fun while it lasted but Florida Gulf Coast University is a wrap. Congrats to them for making the Sweet 16! video via NBC Chicago
