President Obama, a Chicago sports fan, welcomed the Cavs to the White House today.

The 2015-2016 NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers visited the White House today, as is customary for championship-winning teams, and President Obama gave a pretty awesome speech honoring the Cavaliers on their incredible season.
