LeBron James isn't intimidated by much. The Heat's championship run last season was a testament to that. Though, when the team traveled to the White House today to be honored by President Obama, James seemed pretty starstruck and amazed he was actually being honored at the White House.
This isn't the first meeting between LeBron and Obama. The two have played a pick-up game before.
While the President praised the Heat's teamwork, he did single out James performance "as one of the best in basketball history."
