The L.A. Lakers will NOT visit Joe Biden at the White House next week to celebrate their 2019-20 NBA championship — but it ain’t a protest.
Unlike every NBA team during the Trump administration, the Lakers are NOT choosing to skip the Biden visit for political reasons — it’s all about COVID protocols and scheduling conflicts, according to multiple outlets.
The Lakers will be in D.C. to take on the Washington Wizards on April 28th — and championship teams have historically scheduled the celebratory White House during road trips in the area.
But, it won’t happen this time.
However, the Lakers — including superstar LeBron James — are open to a future meeting with President Biden … possibly later or even after the season.
