Retired Barack Obama takes his talents to NBA 2K17

Before you go, we thought you'd like these...
Before you go close icon

Barack Obama took a well-deserved break from the White House this month, with footage surfacing of him kitesurfing with billionaire pal Richard Branson on Necker island -- an island that is privately owned by Branson on all accounts -- and images of him bro-ing out in a backwards cap.

And one would think after eight years of running the highest office of the U.S. government, Obama would want to vacation a little longer before returning to work on his Obama Foundation -- not play professional basketball.

But Youtuber NykeFaller had different plans for the former president, showing the rest of the world what it would look like if Obama laced up some Jordans and got onto the court.

So, he created a look-alike custom character in the NBA 2K17 MyCareer Mode feature.

Naturally, Twitter has had a few remarks (and counting) for the dunking Obama:

Some were stunned by the former president's physical transformation.

Others seemed upset with Obama's Hornets team attire.

All things considered, it's a safe bet this video will be the closest we'll get to seeing Obama dunk, or dab, in the league.
