Trump says National Basketball Association champs won't get invite

Trump says National Basketball Association champs won't get invite

"Because I think the championship - winning a Super Bowl or winning a Stanley Cup or winning a World Series or winning an NBA championship or national championship - is way bigger than getting invited to the White House, especially with him in there, in my opinion".

The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers meet Friday night in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. Something tells us they'll be just fine without a White House visit.

Friday, Trump said that the eventual National Basketball Association champion - whether the Golden State Warriors or Cleveland Cavaliers - will not be invited to the White House, per CNN's Jim Acosta.

"It's typical of him, I'm not surprised..."

"I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants to go anyway", James 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. He said they're not invited.

James didn't mince words on Tuesday when he also criticized Trump for not inviting the WNBA team.

It is important to note, however, that no Eagles players kneeled during the national anthem last season, TIME confirmed.

Kevin Durant agreed with both Curry and James.

What did Trump say in response?

We'll see." However, at least one Capitals player has said he'll be skipping: "Devante Smith-Pelly said he'll skip the visit because of his disagreements with Trump, according to The Hill.

"I think we'll have the Caps".

The Warriors, who lead Cleveland 2-0 in the best-of-seven series entering game three Wednesday, would likely follow the lead of what they did a year ago when they went to Washington and spent the day with children instead of what would have been a White House trip.

When asked about the Eagles, Curry said any team that wins a championship will be faced with the decision of whether or not they will travel to the White House.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson was disappointed that his team was not able to celebrate the championship at the White House, but tried to move past it, ESPN reported.

"But we have other teams that are coming".

Warriors guard Stephen Curry is on the same page. He told reporters today that he might pardon Muhammad Ali (whose 1967 draft evasion conviction was already overturned, in 1971, by the U.S. Supreme Court).
