LeBron James and other NBA players had the best tweets about Joe Biden being named president-elect

You know LeBron had this one saved in the drafts for months.

After four long, anxious days of waiting to find out who the next president of the United States would be, Joe Biden was declared president-elect by every major news outlet on Saturday morning. As Democratic voters around the country began to celebrate, it was NBA superstar LeBron James who had one of the most entertaining tweets of the day.

His teammate Ben Simmons was a little more subtle in celebration:
