President Obama got a big bounce on Monday. Actually, a whole bunch of bounces.

From White House Dossier by way of a photo ABC’s Jake Tapper tweeted, here are the basketballs that were used during a hoops clinic for kids at Monday’s White House Easter Egg Roll:

It’s always important to teach kids that one of the keys to good sportsmanship is modesty.

The White House had planned on including basketballs featuring Joe Biden’s likeness, but those all popped when aides tried to put in the plugs.

Here’s Obama driving the bucket with a ball sporting his own photo. I haven’t seen anything like it at a WH Roll since 1978 when Jimmy Carter’s brother passed out in the potato salad while clutching a can of Billy Beer.

Everything else aside, in order to have deserved your picture on the basketball, you’ve got to hit better than one out of five from the outside. Is that too much to ask?
