The Cleveland Cavaliers are visiting the White House today to celebrate the franchise’s first NBA Championship with President Barack Obama.
Ahead of the big White House visit, many people are wondering if this will be the last time an NBA team or any sports championship team will visit the official residence of the U.S. President for a long time.
Sports’ Illustrated’s Lee Jenkins said that at least one of the players hinted at it.
The Cavs are going to the White House tomorrow. One of them speculated they may be the last NBA team to do that for a while.

Apparently, that player was NBA veteran and Finals-star Richard Jefferson. Jefferson posted this via his Snapchat account before the visit.
Jefferson, LeBron James, and J.R. Smith were among big fans of President Barack Obama and were endorsing Hillary Clinton for President.
