President Trump asked Kirk Cousins about his contract and whether LeBron James was still the best


Is LeBron James still the best player in the NBA? Is Kirk Cousins going to re-sign with the Redskins? 

Those are the top two questions on the minds of many D.C. sports fans. They're also on the mind of President Donald Trump. 

Trump brought up both subjects at lunch after playing a round of golf with Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins

Eric Shuster, CSN's Director of Strategic Partnerships, joined the June 10 outing as a personal friend of Cousins and related pieces of the day's conversations. 

While dining at the Trump National Golf Club grill, Shuster said the President asked him and Cousins what they thought of the hot NBA topics of the day.

Could the Cavaliers, who had just routed the Warriors in Game 4 to stave off elimination, pull off a comeback to win the NBA Finals? And was LeBron James still the best player in the NBA?

Trump was curious what they thought, but didn't reveal his own take on the topics during the conversation.

Having recently relocated from New York to Washington, Trump wanted to know how Cousins liked his time there, and whether he planned to re-sign with the Redskins. 

That's been the major question for the franchise and its fans for the past two summers.

But even the President of the United States asking didn't change Cousins's polite response: He would leave the contract talk to his agent.
