In a recent interview conducted by Britain’s Prince Harry, former President Barack Obama settled the question over who is better: Michael Jordan or LeBron James. Turns out, Obama decided to stick with the “Chicago guy.”

Obama was in the U.K. last week and while “over there” sat down with Prince Harry for an interview that was broadcast this week on BBC Radio 4. At one point in the interview, Harry hit Obama with a sort of lightning round series of questions one of which was who is better, Michael Jordan or LeBron James.

The ex-president answered without hesitation saying, “Jordan. Although I love LeBron. I’m a Chicago guy.”

During the lightning round, Harry also asked if Obama liked boxers or briefs, but Obama said, “we don’t answer those questions.” Obama continued saying he missed the White House movie theater, said he liked Rachel from Friends, and said he loved Aretha Franklin, among others.

During the same interview, Obama also took a not so veiled slap at President Trump for his “irresponsible” tweets.

Without mentioning Trump by name, Obama said those in power should take more caution about what they say on social media.
