LeBron James: Whoever wins National Basketball Association championship won't want White House invite

10 June, 2018, 19:44 | Author: Heidi Alvarez

President Donald Trump was a little too late on Friday to rescind his White House offer to the Golden State Warriors now that they've swept the NBA Finals.

Earlier this week, the White House canceled a ceremony with the defending National Football League champions Philadelphia Eagles.

"James, whose Cleveland Cavaliers are trailing the Golden State Warriors 2-0 in the NBA Finals, said neither team would be interested in attending if they win a championship this year - or as long as Mr. Trump is in office", reported CBS.

"I'm going to ask them to recommend to me people that were unfairly treated - friends of theirs or people that they know about - and I'm going to take a look at those applications", he said.

Earlier this week, Trump canceled the Philadelphia Eagles' visit to the White House, where they were supposed to be honored for their Super Bowl win from February.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday urged the Washington Capitals to come to the White House to celebrate their Stanley Cup championship but said the victor of the National Basketball Association title would not be invited.

Putin, however, voiced his support for Trump's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore on Tuesday. Rouhani also extended his appreciation to Beijing and Moscow for continuing their support of the nuclear deal.


According to the Washington Post, Kerr said he found the image ironic, calling Eagles players who do community service more patriotic than the commander in chief.

Trump also said he won't invite potential National Basketball Association champs the San Francisco Warriors or Cleveland Cavaliers to the White House - days after they said they wouldn't show up anyway. It won't be Golden State or Cleveland going (to the White House). I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway.

Stephen Curry, who's LeBron's opposition on the court, is on board with him on the anti-Trump train. "There are a lot of people that believe that he's not for the people or doing things that's right by the people".

"I think it's laughable at this point", he said.

When told about James' comment, Curry agreed with his opponent's sentiment.

The result was one of the oddest White House events in memory. A new NFL policy announced last month allows dissenting players to stay in the locker room during the national anthem but Trump said "maybe they shouldn't be in the country". There I said it.
