Jori Lehtera Blues Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .An unexpected guest will be there too.The visit by the reigning NBA champions will coincide with President-elect Donald Trumps meeting with President Barack Obama to discuss the handover of power and transition following a shocking election that left James -- and millions of Americans -- wondering about the future.Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a onetime Republican presidential rival who refused to endorse Trump and boycotted the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, also was to visit the White House on Thursday.James had supported Trumps Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, appearing on stage with the former secretary of state at a campaign rally in Cleveland on Sunday to urge residents to vote.On Wednesday, just hours after Clinton had conceded the election to Trump, James posted on his Instagram account that he woke up looking and searching for answers on what has happened. He posted the audio to Alright, a song by rapper Kendrick Lamar.The Cavs trip to Washington, D.C., has been planned for weeks. Coach Tyronn Lue, who received a phone call in June from Obama shortly after Cleveland rallied to beat the?Golden State Warriors?in the NBA Finals, wanted the visit to happen before the first African-American president left office. Cleveland plays the?Wizards?at Washington on Friday night.Lue won back-to-back championships with the?Los Angeles Lakers?in 2000 and 2001, but he failed to make it to the home of the president of the United States back then. He said its something he regrets to this day.As a young guy [I was] not really respecting what it was and what it meant, Lue said this week. We won our second championship and I was, what, 22, and I was playing for the Wizards and they came in town, they invited me to go with the Lakers. I just didnt go. It was stupid.But I mean, as young guy, you just take things for granted. You dont really understand those opportunities and what that means. Now Im happy with the fact that years later Im able to have an opportunity to go again. So Im going to take full advantage of it.James has openly expressed his views on numerous political issues in recent years. Following Trumps election, the three-time champion and father of three said he felt the need to offer encouragement to minorities and women.James wasnt the only Cavaliers player to express his feelings.J.R. Smith, who also attended Clintons rally in Cleveland, posted a photo to Instagram of his daughter standing outside the White House.How do I even feel confident sending her on play dates knowing the [kids] family voted for the racist, sexist person, [and] I dont know how they will treat her when shes gone, Smith wrote in the caption. How? Seriously How?Information from The Associated Press contributed to this report. Kevin Shattenkirk Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. Scottie Upshall Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. -- Anaheim Ducks defenceman Luca Sbisa will be out at least six weeks with a torn tendon in his right hand. http://www.officialbluesnhlshop.com/doug-gilmour-jersey//>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . - Chris Tierney snapped a tie with a power-play goal late in the third period as the London Knights rallied from a 3-0 deficit to beat the Erie Otters 5-3 in Ontario Hockey League action on Wednesday. A look at whats happening all around the majors Tuesday:---ALL EVENWith the Cubs and Dodgers tied at one game apiece, the best-of-seven NL Championship Series shifts to Los Angeles for Game 3. Jake Arrieta, the 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner, starts for Chicago against lefty Rich Hill. Arrieta threw his first no-hitter at Dodger Stadium on Aug. 30 last year in a game that began shortly after 5 p.m. local time, the same starting time as Tuesday. Shadows can creep between the mound and home plate at that hour, which Arrieta believes favors the pitchers. I really think it can be difficult to pick up spin, he said.SHORT RESTCorey Kluber could be back on the mound a day earlier than planned when the Indians face Toronto in Game 4 of the AL Championship Series. Cleveland manager Terry Francona said he would move up Kluber to start on three days rest Tuesday if Trevor Bauers injured finger acted up in Game 3. Bauer was removed in the first inning Monday night after blood began dripping from his right pinkie. Kluber pitched 6 11/3 scoreless innings in a Game 1 win at home last Friday. Carter Hutton Blues Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. The 2014 AL Cy Young Award winner hasnt allowed a run in two starts and 13 1/3 innings during his first postseason this year. Aaron Sanchez starts for the Blue Jays. He was 15-2 with an AL-low 3.00 ERA this season.LOOKING AHEADDodgers manager Dave Roberts confirmed 20-year-old rookie Julio Urias is scheduled to start Game 4 of the NLCS on Wednesday night. The team limited Urias workload down the stretch -- he has thrown only 10 2/3 innings since Sept. 3. But the young lefty from Mexico tossed two scoreless innings out of the bullpen to win Game 5 of the Division Series at Washington last Thursday after finishing 5-2 with a 3.39 ERA in 18 games (15 starts) and 77 innings during the regular season. He is 5-0 with a 1.90 ERA since the All-Star break. Postseason pro John Lackey, who turns 38 on Sunday, pitches for the Cubs. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '
