Though President Barack Obama regularly touts his basketball skills, the leader of the free world isn’t the leader of free throws, apparently.

At the White House Easter Egg Roll Monday, Obama missed 20 out of 22 free throws in front kids and NBA players from the Washington Wizards, including John Wall, Bradley Beal and Emeka Okafor.

In his first shot the ball bounced off the rim and circled out, according to a pool report.

At one point, Obama asked a boy for help, handing him a ball.

“He couldn’t make one. I had to help him out,” said Kahron Campbell, 10, of Landover, Md., who made the layup.
