Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James endorsed a tweet from Democratic candidate Joe Biden after the latter showed a one-minute preview to a conversation with former President Barack Obama.
Biden’s tweet simply read “44 + 46,” signaling his optimism of becoming the next president of the United States while celebrating the man who had him as his vice president for two terms.

Biden and Obama chided President Donald Trump for his unwillingness to take responsibility for the series of infections amid this global coronavirus pandemic, noting neither he nor Obama could fathom escaping such a huge duty to the people. Obviously, the Lakers superstar appears to agree.
The two Democrats made it very clear they were disapproving of Trump’s regime right from the onset:
Joe Biden: “I can’t imagine standing up when you’re the president and saying ‘it’s not my responsibility. I take no responsibility. Literally.”
Barack Obama: “Those words didn’t come out of our mouths when we were in office.”
Joe Biden: “I don’t understand his inability to get a sense of what people are going through. He just can’t, he can’t relate in any way.”
44 + 46

LeBron James has been one of Obama’s biggest fans in NBA circles and he even was among the last players to visit him during his last term in office, as the 2015-16 Cleveland Cavaliers were the last team to be invited to the White House during Obama’s regime.
The Lakers superstar has also heavily opposed the Trump regime during the past four years and sided with other Democrats like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Undoubtedly, Joe Biden has another vote in his favor from the Lakers talent, who hasn’t been shy about supporting his cause and will likely continue to do so as the presidential elections get closer and more voices weigh in on the matter.
