White House press secretary Josh Earnest revealed President Barack Obama to be huge fan of LeBron James.

During a recent press briefing, Earnest said that though the US President didn't tell him anything personally, he knows that Obama considered the NBA superstar to be "fine young man," the Politico reported.

He added that Obama, 52, had personally met the champ a few times, and had even made an appeal for him to join the president's beloved Chicago Bulls when James was a free agent back in 2010.

The 29-year-old basketball star, who had claimed two NBA championships with the Miami Heat, recently announced his return to the Cleveland Cavaliers team in a Sports Illustrated article.
