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.”
