No White House invite for National Basketball Association champs, 'we'll see' about Caps

LeBron James does not appear to be a fan of President Donald Trump.

What did Steph Curry say? President Trump uninvited the Warriors, after Curry had already declined, claiming that Curry was hesitating and did not deserve the invite.

"I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway", James said.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Mr. Trump had "made it pretty clear he's going to try to divide us ... for political gain".

"Any team that wins the championship is going to be in that decision-making situation where you got to do what is in the best interests of your team and handle that accordingly", Curry began, addressing the Eagles' disinvitation.

Djibril Sidibe failed to cleanly clear the ball and Green surged into the area to fire past Hugo Lloris on the stroke of halftime. They enjoyed most of the possession against the United States in Lyon but lacked speed, with the exception of Mbappe.

After Curry said publicly he didn't want to go to the White House, Trump responded by saying the Warriors weren't invited. "Like guys said before me, I'm sure whoever wins this series won't be going". So therefore ain't no invite. Warriors players indicated after winning the championship in 2017 that they would not go to the White House, then as they were set to meet as a team to formally decide, Trump rescinded the invitation.

Stephen Curry, who's LeBron's opposition on the court, is on board with him on the anti-Trump train.

"It's typical of him", James said of Trump. "There is a lot of things we believe in as Americans that we don't feel that he is for".

"It's not surprising, hearing the news today with the Eagles", James continued. "We're not going to invite either team, but we have other teams that are coming", Trump told reporters.

LeBron James, who once called Trump a "bum" for his treatment of black athletes, had said the Cavs would not be interested in a White House visit after Trump canceled a celebration there for the Philadelphia Eagles over National Anthem protests. 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". So, that's refreshing that he's educating people along the way. We'll see." However, at least one Capitals player has said he'll be skipping: "Devante Smith-Pelly said he'll skip the visit because of his disagreements with Trump, according to The Hill.
