What Jeremy Lin Joke Is Obama Making About Mitt?

New, comments

From the New York Times, via Zach Lowe:

"We're the Miami Heat, and he's Jeremy Lin," Mr. Obama said. [...]

What joke is the president making? Options below the jump.

"Mitt Romney is all hype, but we are champions!"

"Mitt Romney might be a smartypants goodie two shoes, but we have extraordinarily large birthday cakes!"

"Mitt has a punable name, but we have Joel Anthony!"

"Mitt could rip through less worthy opponents, but not us!" (See: Lin drops 38 on Lakers.)

"Mitt is Lin-ept!"

***
Answer: Obama was indicating that his team would stop Romney in every lane through which he would attempt to travel.
