NBA Champions Not Invited To White House

NBA Champions Not Invited To White House

On Tuesday, basketball stars Lebron James and Stephen Curry of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors stated that regardless of who wins the NBA finals, neither of their teams would want to visit the White House.

"We're not going to invite either team", Trump told reporters at the White House. A new NFL policy announced last month allows dissenting players to stay in the locker room during the national anthem but Trump said "maybe they shouldn't be in the country". "I'm not surprised... I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants to invite anybody".

Kevin Durant agreed with both Curry and James.

"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. "You know, my attitude is if they want to be here, the greatest place on Earth, I'm here".

There is no doubt, though, that Trudeau is upset that the USA would invoke security concerns as justification for the tariffs. In a series of tweets on the eve of the summit, the president gave a glimpse of the issues he's prioritizing for negotiations.

Curry was referring to the Warriors' decision not to visit the White House after winning the 2017 championship. "It [an invitation] hasn't come up here, but I think I already have my mind made up".

Trump balked at the idea a small contingent of Eagles players and representatives would be sent to the White House rather than the whole team. "We all look forward to the day we can go back to just having a celebration of athletic achievement".

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he will not host either the Cleveland Cavaliers or Golden State Warriors at the White House, echoing the controversy over the National Basketball Association champ Warriors' invitation a year ago.

Curry is referencing last year's controversy when the Warriors declined an invitation the White House. "Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!" "We get it at this point, but it's good that guys are sticking to what they believe in..."
