A trip Cleveland's been waiting to make for decades.

FOX's Chris Hoenig reports:

The NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers visiting President Obama at the White House:

(President Obama) "That's right I said world champion and Cleveland in the same sentence."

The President honoring the team for Cleveland's first major sports championship since 1964, and the historic fashion in which they did, coming back from 3-1 down in the Finals against a Golden State Warriors team that had the best regular season in NBA history:

(President Obama) "I should add that by knocking off the Warriors, they cemented the 1996 Bulls as the greatest team of all-time. So your President thanks you for that."

It was the third trip to the White House for Cavs star LeBron James, who won league titles in 2012 and 2013 with the Miami Heat:

(James) "It means so much man, this is a very humbling experience."
