President Barack Obama welcomed the NBA champions San Antonio to the White House on Monday, and said he'd be glad to offer advice as they pursue a title repeat.

"If you guys need any tips on winning back-to-back, you know where to find me," quipped the second-term president, no doubt aware that the Spurs' five NBA titles don't include any in successive years.

As a passionate fan of the Chicago Bulls, who won all six of their NBA titles to date in the 1990s, Obama admitted it was bittersweet to yet again congratulate another team.
