While in Miami to make a speech on the economy, Obama spoke about the Chicago Bulls and the Miami Heat, saying the Heat will be fine. "They are playing basketball the right way," Obama said.

President Obama made a quick stop in Miami, Fla. on Friday to deliver a speech promoting his economic agenda that proposes new ways for governments to secure private funding for highway, bridge and other public works projects as a boost to the economy, but more importantly, to create more construction jobs.

The President toured a local tunnel project before making his way to PortMiami to deliver his scheduled address.

But before he got down to brass tacks in South Florida, the Chicago resident and noted Bulls fan couldn’t help but deliver some lighthearted ribbing to the Miamians in attendance, just days removed from his hometown team stopping the Miami Heat’s 27-game winning streak, the second longest such streak in in NBA history.

“I know you guys aren't too happy with my Chicago Bulls,” Obama said to the assembled crowd, once again publicly putting his allegiance to Chicago’s sports teams on display.
