President Donald Trump says he won't invite National Basketball Association champion to White House

'No one wants the invite anyway': Lebron James, Steph Curry agree on no White House trip

Warriors and Cavs Refuse to Visit White House

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has yet another chance to lead his team to a sweep of the Cleveland Cavaliers, after a demolishing 15-0 postseason run a year ago came to an end with a record-breaking 25 3-pointers by LeBron James and company.

Some members of the Eagles had not planned to attend, prompting Trump's withdrawal of the traditional invite for the Super Bowl winners. Sounds like another win for whoever nabs the championship.

"I didn't invite them".

"We're not going to invite either team", Trump told reporters at the White House.

"You know my attitude: If they want to be here - it's the greatest place on Earth - I'm here".




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.

The last National Basketball Association team to attend the White House visit was the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016, when Barack Obama was still president. "It won't be Golden State or Cleveland going". According to ESPN's Marc J. Spears, LeBron wasn't surprised by Trump's decision to uninvite the Philadelphia Eagles, so he likely won't be surprised to learn of today's comments.

Stephen Curry says he won't be attending any White House party should the Golden State Warriors win the NBA Finals.

Kerr was asked about the community service WNBA Champion team The Lynx are taking part of in Washington D.C. in the midst of Trump's ongoing feud with athletes. Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and others echoed James' sentiment.

"By not going, hopefully that will inspire some change in terms of what we tolerate in this country", Curry said. "We all look forward to the day we can go back to just having a celebration of athletic achievement". "I was going to go up and get the tip".
