Before he is set to move out of the White House, President Barack Obama is hoping to cram in as many championship visits as possible. On Thursday at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Obama not only met with President Elect Donald Trump to begin the transfer of power, but also honored LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers for their 2016 NBA Championship over the summer.
Obama even gave a special thanks to JR Smith’s shirt…

As is customary for such an occasion, Obama was presented a personalized Cavaliers jersey (even though it was their awful alternate black jersey) and the President posed for a photo with the entire team.
With the photo being taken outside the White House, Obama needed to have a couple guys come and remove the presidential podium. For whatever reason, Iman Shumpert seemed amazed by such a procedure.
I honestly watched this video a few times before realizing what I was supposed to be looking at. Now I can’t stop watching Shumpert’s expression when the President has his guys come to remove the podium.
Sometimes, it is the simple things that amaze us.
