Bill Simmons recently interviewed President Barack Obama for GQ’s 2015 Men of the Year issue and among the topics they discussed. Simmons asked the Commander-in-Chief if he ever like to own an NBA team one day and which Chicago star is more untradeable. Bulls guard Derrick Rose or Bears QB Jay Cutler.

More from GQ:

BS: Would you ever want to be part of the ownership for an NBA team?
BO: Absolutely.

BS: Would it have to be the Bulls, or would it have to be somebody else?
BO: Well, you know, I know [Jerry] Reinsdorf pretty good—he’s not giving that thing up anytime soon. But I have fantasized about being able to put together a team and how much fun that would be. I think it’d be terrific.

BS: Who’s more untradable, Derrick Rose or Jay Cutler?
BO:[pause] Oh, I think Rose still has more upside. Remember, Rose is still awfully young.

BS: So you haven’t given up on Rose?
BO: I’ve not given up on him. Sadly, I think it’s hard to imagine, after that many injuries, him getting back to his MVP-season performance. But he can still be a top-ten point guard.
