Warriors and Cavs Refuse to Visit White House - Katie Zehnder

SPORTSPresident Donald Trump won't invite NBA champion to White HouseSHARE:sharetweetshareemail

Taking the podium next, Curry said, "I think I agree with 'Bron, I'm pretty sure the way we handled things previous year, we'll stay consistent with that".

"Winning a Super Bowl or winning a Stanley Cup or winning a World Series or winning an NBA championship or a national championship is way bigger than getting invited to the White House", James added, "especially with him in there, in my opinion". We had the Pittsburgh Penguins previous year", Trump said, adding, "I think we'll have the Caps. "You know, my attitude: If they want to be here, it's the greatest place on Earth, I'm here".

Last year, President Trump disinvited Curry and the Warriors after the Golden State superstar said he wouldn't go.

The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers are playing for the NBA's championship, but Trump said on Friday the victor would not be coming to the White House.

James told members of the media, "It's typical of (Trump); I'm not surprised". I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway.

The president congratulated the team on Twitter earlier Friday. It's good that guys are sticking to what they believe in and what they want to do. President Trump uninvited the Warriors, after Curry had already declined, claiming that Curry was hesitating and did not deserve the invite.

Washington's hockey team won the NHL championship on Thursday night with a 4-3 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights - its first title in the team's 44-year history. Trump has often blasted the NFL players who have kneeled for the national anthem, a protest that started in 2016 when San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick did so to protest racism and more specifically the killing of black men by police.

"Let's not let someone uninviting you from their house take away from their championship", James said later, Sports Illustrated reported. We're going to focus on the game tonight. His teammate, Kevin Durant, also spoke about the Eagles' move before as well.

"I agree with LeBron", he said, viaThe Hollywood Reporter. So the photo op don't look bad.
