For the first time since 2016, the NBA champions visited the White House on Monday, when President Biden welcomed the Milwaukee Bucks.

Biden also applauded the team’s efforts against the Brooklyn Nets and the Phoenix Suns in the Eastern Conference semifinals and the NBA Finals, respectively. The Bucks were forced to climb out of a 2-0 hole in both series.

Bucks owner Marc Lasry and two-time league MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo gave remarks before finishing the ceremony by presenting the president with a No. 46 Bucks jersey with his name on the back.

In the hours before the ceremony, the Bucks posed for pictures near the South Lawn, with guard Pat Connaughton posting a selfie of the team on his Twitter account. The Bucks’ Twitter account also posted a photo of Antetokounmpo and his brother and teammate, Thanasis, posing with their championship rings.

The previous NBA team to visit the White House was LeBron James’s Cleveland Cavaliers on Nov. 10, 2016, when Barack Obama was still in office and just two days after Donald Trump was elected president. During the Trump administration, the Golden State Warriors did not celebrate their 2017 and 2018 championships with the traditional ceremonial visit at a time when Coach Steve Kerr, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and other members of that team had been critical of Trump. In lieu of a White House visit in 2018, the team toured the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
