Cavs do the Mannequin Challenge with Michelle Obama at the White House

Becoming the last championship team to be honored by President Obama before he leaves office, the Cleveland Cavaliers visited the White House on Thursday. And while the Cavs zinged by Obama throughout his congratulatory speech, like all championship teams visiting the White House, the Cavs had a great time.

But while getting lauded by the President is a once in lifetime experience, the Cavs were especially excited to meet and take pictures with the First Lady Michelle Obama. Several of the players like LeBron James, Kevin Love and J.R. Smith took selfies and pictures with the First Lady, who was more than happy to pose for photos with the Cavs:

What a day!

The Cavs even got the First Lady to do the popular Mannequin Challenge with them, which is simply amazing:

The Mannequin Challenge is all the rage these days but it may be hard to top the Cavs' version. Especially since LeBron took part and the Cavs did it in the White House with the First Lady.

So the Cavs not only became the first team to come back from a 3-1 deficit in the Finals, they also were the last team to be honored by President Obama at the White House and got the First Lady to participate in a popular internet sensation with them. The Cavs truly know how to make history.
