On Saturday, every major news network declared Joe Biden the winner of the Presidential election.

After Biden’s victory, Draymond Green joked that LeBron and the Lakers could now go to the White House considering Trump will be out of office.
Yoooo @KingJames y’all can go to the White House and celebrate y’all title G! 🙌🏿🙌🏿🙌🏿🙌🏿

LeBron confirmed the Lakers were headed to the White House and that he was bringing some alcoholic beverages with him.
YO we back up in there my G!!! I’m taking my tequila and vino too! 😁😁😁 🥃🥃🍷🍷

It is worth noting that back in 2017 LeBron was openly critical of President Trump for saying he wasn’t going to invite the Golden State Warriors to the White House after winning the championship.
