Don't worry, Mario Chalmers. The president of the United States has your back.

When the Miami Heat made their visit to the White House on Jan. 14, President Barack Obama decided to wrap up his speech with a well-timed joke.

The zing drew many laughs. Even LeBron James was able to get a good laugh at the quip, despite his personal experience in that department:

It's such a common trend that there's even a Tumblr page dedicated to people yelling at Chalmers.

Well done, Mr. President.
