The Washington Wizards might want to send President Obama a jersey.  Or even buy him a season's pass.

The Prez, who got a Chicago Bulls' jersey when the team visited the White House Thursday, seems to have brought the Wizards the energy they needed for a win against the First Fan's hometown team Friday.

Despite receiving a standing ovation from over 18,000 fans, even Obama couldn't bear to stay until the very end, when the Wizards sent the Bulls running 113-90.

The Wizards, who haven't exactly been on a winning streak this season, seemed to take it all in stride as JaVale McGee slam dunked a pass from a butterflies-in-the-stomach Caron Butler, then turned and saluted Obama in the front row.

Maybe the Wiz should reserve a seat for Obama at every game...
