Pres. Trump won't invite National Basketball Association champions to White House

On Tuesday, LeBron James said neither his Cavaliers nor the Warriors would accept a visit as a victor of the NBA Finals.

Cleveland's LeBron James on Tuesday said neither the Cavalier nor the Warriors would attend a visit to the White House as the champions of the National Basketball Association.

Curry and the Cavaliers' top player, LeBron James, already have said they would not want to make the White House trip this year.

In a similar situation a year ago, Trump uninvited the Warriors from visiting the White House after Curry and other prominent members of the team said they weren't interested in attending a ceremony.

"You know, my attitude is if they want to be here, the greatest place on Earth, I'm here".

Curry said the team has been on the same page after his comments past year and Trump's subsequent revoking of the Warriors' invitation. James told members of the media, "It's typical of (Trump); I'm not surprised".

And his brilliant plan to end all the controversy goes like this: "I'm going to say to them instead of talk..."

But Trump said he'd be happy to host the Washington Capitals, who just won the Stanley Cup. "If they don't want to be here, I don't want them", Trump said.

He also said that winning a championship is much bigger than getting invited to the White House, "especially with him in it". We had the New England Patriots. So, it's not surprising hearing the news today with the Eagles.

In a similar situation past year, Trump uninvited the Warriors from visiting the White House after Curry and other prominent members of the team said they weren't interested in attending a ceremony. "Like guys said before me, I'm sure whoever wins this series won't be going". "I think we all look forward to the day when we can go back to just having a celebration of athletic achievement and celebrate Americans for their achievement, their good deeds".

Mr. Trump's attacks on kneeling football players always draw applause at his rallies and he has urged fans to leave a game if they see a player kneeling.

Both the Cavs and Warriors visited the White House while Barack Obama was president following their championships.
