In light of President Donald Trump uninviting the 2018 Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles to the White House, LeBron James said neither his Cleveland Cavaliers nor the Golden State Warriors would accept a visit as a winner of the NBA Finals.
James was very vocal when the 2017 champion Warriors were uninvited to a possible trip to the White House by Trump. The three-time Finals MVP described Trump's rescinding of the Eagles invite as "typical of him."
"As long as he's in office, then the communication and things like that are going to continue to happen," James said about Trump. "It's a lot of things that we believe in as Americans that we don't feel that he's for. There are a lot of people that believe that he's not for the people or doing things that's right by the people. So, it's not surprising hearing the news today with the Eagles. But I think more importantly, as Americans and especially people in Philadelphia, we shouldn't let that news take away from what that unbelievable team did and accomplished, what all those players did to sacrifice throughout each and every Sunday, going out and playing the style of football that they played and winning a Super Bowl the way they won it.
For his part, Steph Curry agreed with James that the Warriors won’t visit the White House if they’re champions again. Curry sounded proud of the Eagles players who decided not to go to the White House.
Yup so it looks like President Trump has one less party to plan after the NBA Finals.
