Milwaukee Bucks to celebrate 2021 NBA title at White House on Nov. 8, sources say

Sources told ESPN that the Milwaukee Bucks will travel to the White House on Nov. 8 to celebrate their 2021 NBA title win.
The Bucks will become the first NBA team since the 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers visited President Barack Obama. Milwaukee beat the Phoenix Suns six times in July to win its 50th championship.

The trip was not made by the four previous champions, the Golden State Warriors in 2017-18, the Toronto Raptors 2019 and the Los Angeles Lakers 2020. Donald Trump's presidency prevented the Raptors and Warriors from going.

Due to travel complications caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Lakers were unable to make this year's trip.

James answered reporters last season when asked about the possibility of making the trip. He said, "It would have been great, but I don't know what else we can do right now, other than hotel, arena, and home."

Draymond Green, a Warriors forward, tweeted at James shortly after Biden defeated Trump in November's election: "Y'all can go the White House to celebrate y’all title G!" James replied: "YO, we back up there my G!" I'm also taking my vino and tequila!"

Milwaukee hosts the Wizards in Washington tomorrow, and then heads to Philadelphia on Monday, Nov. 9. The Bucks are currently 3-2 in the season and will host the San Antonio Spurs tonight.
