WASHINGTON– President Barack Obama will welcome the 2016 NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers to the White House.

The President will honor the team on their title and thank them for giving back to the community on Nov. 10 at 2:05 p.m.

President John F. Kennedy was the first president to invite NBA champions to the White House when the Boston Celtics won in 1963. Now, about a dozen professional and college teams visit each year.

The Cavs made NBA history by becoming the first team to overcome a 3-1 deficit to win the championship. They opened their new season last week and remain unbeaten after five games.
