Cavs could be last team to visit White House for a long time

As the Cleveland Cavaliers are scheduled to visit the White House, many are wondering if this will be the last time an NBA team will visit the official residence of the U.S. President in a long time.

With Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump set to become the 45th President of the United States, it will be hard to imagine an NBA team, mostly made up of African American players, making a courtesy call to Mr. Trump, who has had a history of racially-charged comments against different races, including theirs.

Many players have openly given their disapproval over the election results and the Cavaliers’ star forward LeBron James posted a video on Instagram with a lengthy message to his fellow Americans.

As I woke up today looking and searching for answers on what has happened this song hit it right on the head! If we continue the faith(as hard as it may be to do so) we will BE ALRIGHT!! Parents and leaders of our children please let them know they can still change the world for the better! Don't lose a bit of faith! They're our future and we must remain stronger than ever!! Yes we all wanna lace up the boots, put on the hard hats and strike but that's not the answer. Love, genuine LOVE and FAITH will be the only thing that can get us through this. Minorities and Women in all please know that this isn't the end, it's just a very challenging obstacle that we will overcome!! The man above will never put something in our paths that we can handle no matter how difficult it may feel/be! To all the youth out there I PROMISE I'll continue to lead u guys every single day without no hesitation!! Time to educate and even more mold my children into being the greatest model citizens they can become in life! They will continue the legacy beyond life! Lastly, Even if whos now in office doesn't, Know that I LOVE YOU'LL!!!

And as fate would have it, the Cavs’ appointment will coincide with the first visit of the President-elect to his future home and office. It’s not expected that their paths will cross but will not be entirely impossible should there be any delays or schedule changes during the day.

Based on the posts made on social media, Trump will not be the most popular commander-in-chief of professional athletes. But things may still change as his term has not started yet. He had already reached out and made a call for unity when he made his victory speech and it will be interesting how the players will act on it.
