Lakers want to visit White House to mark NBA title after Biden takes office: report

By KNX 1070

The Los Angeles Lakers want to visit the White House in the 2020-2021 NBA season -- after President-elect Joe Biden takes office officially on Jan. 20.

That's according to a Yahoo Sports story which quotes league sources.

According to the story, "No NBA team has visited the White House during the Trump administration."

Yahoo Sports reported that the NBA has released the schedule for games until March, and there is no Washington trip in the books for the Lakers -- yet.

The Lakers won the 2020 NBA Finals last year -- the same year the LA Dodgers won the World Series.

The last time an NBA team visited the White House was when Barack Obama was president in 2016 -- when LeBron James was with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

LeBron James has previously endorsed Joe Biden in the 2020 election.
