LeBron, Curry, Durant say National Basketball Association champ won't go to White House

NBA Finals Cleveland Cavaliers at Golden State Warriors

The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors are now battling it out in the NBA Finals, but regardless of the outcome, the franchise's star players say that their teams will not visit the White House after the series is over.

President Donald Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles from the White House after their recent Super Bowl win. I'm not surprised. It's typical of him and, I don't know, I mean, I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyways.

"It's typical of him". It won't be Golden State or Cleveland going [to the White House].

President Trump rescinded the invitation in a tweet: "Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team". "A lot of people that believe he's not for the people or doing things that's right by the people".


"There are a lot of things we believe in as Americans we don't believe he's for", James said.

In a statement released Tuesday, the White House cited "a lack of good faith" by the Eagles during discussions about the scheduled event, but Brewer cited the example of star quarterback Tom Brady, skipping the New England Patriots White House visit for non-political reasons. "Pretty sure the way we handled things a year ago, kinda staying consistent with that".

President Trump uninvited the Warriors, after Curry had already declined, claiming that Curry was hesitating and did not deserve the invite. Game Three is Wednesday night in Cleveland. We're all looking forward to the day when we can go back to just having a celebration and celebrate Americans for their achievement. Numerous people responded to Trump, including Eagles players, noting among other things that few players were going to attend, anyway, and that no Eagles player kneeled during the playing of the national anthem last season. And if you're going to do that, you might as well look for a way to bet on them to win every National Basketball Association title for the next five or six years.

Without saying a word, Malcolm Jenkins is speaking volumes in his message to President Donald Trump.
