Obama meets with John Wall, days after meeting with RGIII

So Barack Obama met with Robert Griffin III during the East regional final at Verizon Center on Saturday, and then Barack Obama met with John Wall during the White House Easter Egg extravaganza thing a few blocks west on Monday.

That makes more most-powerful-man-in-the-world-with-D.C.-sports-star photos than we typically see in a three-day span.

Of course, Wall wasn’t the only athlete on the White House grounds Monday. In addition to national stars like Adrian Peterson, there were also fellow Wizards like Nene and Emeka Okafor, who took advantage of the occasion to pose for goofy photos and touch chandeliers.

And also, Kastles owner Mark Ein, who got a Kastles logo extremely close to the president.
