The “King,” Miami Heat’s LeBron James, was at the White House with the rest of the team Tuesday where he not only got a presidential pat on the back for winning the 2013 championship but apparently also a woman’s phone number and card. And it wasn’t from his new wife.
NBC Associate Producer Stacey Klein Instagramed this note:
“Pretty decent day at the WH today. The Miami HEAT gave a "POTUS" jersey to the head honcho and I watched LeBron ask a girl for her number, right in front of me. He just got married in September. #happilyeverafter #champions #picstitch”
After the post made the rounds in Washington and first lady Michelle Obama tweeted out a cutesy picture of James helping her promote health eating, Klein did a little editing to: "The HEAT at the WH today. Team presented a "POTUS" jersey to the head honcho."
James married his longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson, in San Diego, Calif. on Sept. 14 and from indications in the media is still in the honeymoon phase.
