Remember when it was an honorable and super cool thing for American sports teams to not only win the biggest trophy for their sport, but then get invited to The White House by the president to celebrate? Sadly, that changed. In just the first two years that Donald Trump was president, a reported 20 teams in major sports (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, WNBA, college football, men's and women's college basketball) won championships, and during that time, the long-standing tradition of title winners visiting The White House was cute in half. About half of the 20 teams were either not invited or declined the invitation for varying reasons. Now, with President-Elect Joe Biden set to take office later this month, word is that the Lakers are looking to take The White House up on the offer for that visit AND of course, once its safe to travel with all Covid safety protocols in place. The team is expected to make that visit happen sometime this year, sources at Yahoo Sports are saying.
Biden is set to be sworn in as the 46th President of the United States on January 20. Looks like LeBron is a fan! 🙂
