NBA Coach Steve Kerr Says Trump Doesn't Know Words to Patriotic Songs

LeBron James and Stephen Curry say whoever wins the NBA final will decline any invitation to the White House LeBron James and Stephen Curry say whoever wins the NBA final will decline any invitation to the White House

President Donald Trump said Friday that the victor of the NBA Finals between the Warriors and Cavaliers will not be invited to the White House for a visit. "We're not going to invite either team".

When asked by ESPN's Stephen A. Smith about Trump's statement before Friday's game, National Basketball Association commissioner David Silver said his "first reaction is one of sadness".

In response to the Eagles news, the Cavaliers' LeBron James said, "That's typical of him.

I mean, we'll see", Trump added, referring to the Washington Capitals, who won the NHL Stanley Cup Thursday night over the Las Vegas Golden Knights. "I mean, I'm not surprised", he said during a press conference, according to the Chicago Tribune.

"I'm going to ask them to recommend to me people that were unfairly treated - friends of theirs or people that they know about - and I'm going to take a look at those applications", he said.

Additionally, Trump never extended a White House invite to the 2017 WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx.

"The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow", the president's statement said. "Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!"

Poundworld on brink of administration putting 5300 jobs at risk
Deloitte has been preparing contingency plans for an administration in the event of talks collapsing. Losses for the financial year 2016-17 were £17.1million, up from £5.4million the year before.

"By not going, hopefully that will inspire some change in terms of what we tolerate in this country", Curry said.

"I think we'll have the Caps".

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) drives against Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (30) during the fourth quarter in game three of the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena. His teammate, Kevin Durant, also spoke about the Eagles' move before as well.

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

Before the team made an official decision, Trump announced they weren't welcome.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors are now battling it out in the NBA Finals, but regardless of the outcome, the franchise's star players say that their teams will not visit the White House after the series is over.

The Warriors, in lieu of going to the White House, spent that day taking a group of children to the National Museum of African American History and Culture a few miles away. "We get it at this point, but it's good that guys are sticking to what they believe in..."
