Champions LA Lakers will not visit the White House to meet Joe Biden

NBA 2021: 2020-21 NBA Champions LA Lakers will not visit Joe Biden in the White House during their trip to Washington DC. According to tradition, the champion teams visit the president in the White House.

No NBA champion toured the White House during Trump’s term.

The 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers visited Barack Obama instead. The 2017 Warriors had Stephen Curry signal he had no enthusiasm in visiting Trump, prompting the president to publicly declare their invitation had been “withdrawn.”

The 2018 Warriors did not even try considering it. The 2019 Toronto Raptors possibly had Trump’s assistance to visit, but a tour never unfolded.
