President Barack Obama and his family stayed aboard Air Force One to watch the final minutes of Game 7 after landing at Joint Base Andrews on Sunday night.
The First Family was returning from Yosemite Valley, California, after a trip to Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico and Yosemite National Park in California to encourage more people to appreciate and visit national parks.

Air Force One touched down at Andrews at 10:19 p.m., with less than two minutes remaining in the deciding game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors.
At 10:37 p.m., moments after LeBron James and the Cavaliers finally brought a championship home to Cleveland, President Obama jogged down the steps of Air Force One followed by his daughters, Malia and Sasha, and first lady Michelle Obama.
