“The president is a big fan of LeBron,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest.

The White House reacted Friday to the news that LeBron James decided to return to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Press Secretary Josh Earnest noted that “the president is a big fan of LeBron.”

“The fact that he’s made this decision I think is a testament to the kind of values that he has incorporated into his life and that he says he’s interested in instilling in his children,” he said. “So I think it’s a pretty powerful statement about the value of a place that you consider home.”
