The defending NBA champions will take advantage of their complimentary White House visit early next month. ESPN reports that the Milwaukee Bucks will stop by 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue on November 8, 2021.
The Bucks will be the first team to visit the White House since the Cleveland Cavaliers did so in 2016. The Toronto Raptors and Golden State Warriors did not decide to visit the White House during the Trump administration. More recently, the Los Angeles Lakers hoped to visit President Joe Biden last year, but were unable to do so due to the spread of COVID-19 across the map.
“It would be great, but I have no idea what we can even do right now besides hotel, arena and home,” James told reporters last season.
With the number of COVID-19 cases decreasing nationwide, it appears that the Bucks will be able to resume the tradition during an upcoming tradition. Milwaukee will play the Washington Wizards at Capitol One Arena on November 7 and the Philadelphia 76ers on November 8.
The Milwaukee Bucks are scheduled to make their trip to the White House to celebrate winning the 2021 NBA title on Nov. 8, sources told ESPN. The Bucks will be the first NBA team to visit the White House since the 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers visited former President Obama.
