During his speech, Obama praised the team’s leader, LeBron James.

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, it is his determination. … (James) is a player and this is a team that knows what this title means to Cleveland. This is a city that’s, throughout sports history, been through a lot. The Fumble. The Drive. (Michael) Jordan over (the Cavaliers’ Craig) Ehlo. A whole lot more. But through it all, Cleveland was always ‘Believeland.’

During their visit, the team, along with First Lady Michelle Obama, even did the Mannequin Challenge.

Check out some of the flix and footage from their visit.
