LeBron James & Steph Curry Don't Want Trump Invite

Actually, Stephen Curry and LeBron James jointly decided before Friday's game that neither one meant to pay President Trump a White House visit after a win.

Professional and college sports teams have long celebrated championships with a ceremonial visit to the White House, but the tradition has become increasingly controversial under Trump. President Trump has officially announced that this year's National Basketball Association champion will not be welcome at the White House.

"I'm pretty sure the way we handled things a year ago, (we will) kinda stay consistent with that", Curry said Tuesday when asked whether the Warriors would skip the visit should they win this time.

President Trump flew to Canada Friday for the G-7 meeting - the first of two high-profile summits on his agenda. Some countries have retaliated with their own levies on USA imports.

"Championship teams, not just in our sport, but in other sports aren't getting to celebrate in that way, something that has historically been apolitical in Washington, but I have to put it in the greater context of where we find our country", he said. "When somebody says they don't want to come to the White House, he disinvites them".

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Mr. Trump had "made it pretty clear he's going to try to divide us ... for political gain". "Like guys said before me, I'm sure whoever wins this series won't be going".

"He broke it down pretty verbatim of how his process went with his discussions with his teammates and how he wanted to keep the focus on what the conversation should be and not the anthem and not Trump's policies and how he's been overshadowing the National Football League and all that type of stuff", Curry said.

James, who described Trump as a "bum" following the furore, said this week neither the Warriors nor the Cavs would be likely to accept an invitation after this year's NBA Finals. "Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!" "It's a lot of things that we believe in as Americans that we don't feel that he's for".

"I think we'll have the Caps".
