Warriors and Cavs Refuse to Visit White House - Katie Zehnder

Warriors and Cavs Refuse to Visit White House - Katie Zehnder

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

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Friday that United States President Donald Trump announcing he won't invite the 2018 NBA Finals victor to the White House causes "a bit of resignation that this is where we find ourselves".

Just this week, the president abruptly uninvited the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles from visiting the White House, in part because they planned to bring a "smaller delegation" rather than their full team.

LeBron James and Steph Curry may be fierce opponents on the basketball court.

Trump pointed out that he has had several championship teams at the White House. We'll see. My attitude, if they want to be here, it's the greatest place on earth. "Like guys said before me, I'm sure whoever wins this series won't be going". Trump said there is a chance that the Washington Capitals can come to the White House. He said: "I think we'll have the Caps".

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

After the eruption, people say they had to build an impromptu bridge over hot ashes to try and get the injured the help they need. An Associated Press journalist witnessed five stretchers carrying bags containing human remains being carried out of Los Lotes.

"It will be nice when we can just get back to normal in three years, " Kerr said. "Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!".

On Tuesday, reporters asked Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James for his thoughts on the Trump/Eagles imbroglio.

Earlier this week, the White House canceled a ceremony with the defending National Football League champions Philadelphia Eagles. "It won't be Golden State or Cleveland going", said James in a Cleveland press conference today, preceding tonight's game.

"Listen we have a lot of freedom in our country".

The WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx were not invited to the White House to celebrate their most recent title, something James called "laughable". "Let's not let someone uninviting you to their house take away from that moment..." It's good that guys are sticking to what they believe in and what they want to do.
