ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). STORY: President Barack Obama hosted the 2016 NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers at the White House Thursday. Obama said, "When you see LeBron James, it is not just his power and his speed and his vertical, it is his unselfishness it is his work ethic, it is his insistence on always making the right play." The 31-year-old James, a four-time NBA most valuable player, won two championships for the Miami Heat before returning to the Cavaliers in 2014, leading them to the NBA finals where they lost to the Golden State Warriors. The Cavaliers reversed that result this season, bringing the first professional sports championship to the Ohio city since 1964. Obama who is a fan of the Chicago Bulls said, that "By knocking off the warriors they cemented the 1996 Bulls as the greatest team of all time."
