LeBron James: Whoever wins National Basketball Association championship won't want White House invite

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.

Just as importantly to Ertz, who said he hadn't decided whether he would go to the White House when Trump pulled the invite, Jenkins and Long don't force their views onto teammates. "There are a lot of people that believe that he's not for the people or doing things that's right by the people", James said. "Let's hear it for the Eagles".

His sentiment was shared by rival Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, who said in an interview: "I agree with 'Bron".

Last night, Trump announced that the Super Bowl champions were no longer invited to join him at the White House and that he would instead host "A Celebration of America" to "honor our great country, pay tribute to the heroes who fight to protect it, and loudly and proudly play the National Anthem".

Taking the podium next, Curry said, "I think I agree with 'Bron, I'm pretty sure the way we handled things past year, we'll stay consistent with that". "At the end of the day, every team has an opportunity to make a decision for themselves and speak for themselves".

Curry went on to explain that he believes every team in the National Basketball Association deserves the opportunity to make the decision to visit Trump or not should it win a championship while he remains in office.

WNBA reigning champions Minnesota Lynx weren't even invited to the White House following their fourth win in the last seven years.

"I'm not sure about the whole anthem policy".

Most members of the team avoided mentioning Trump on Wednesday during the first media availability of the week, and in a news conference, coach Doug Pederson sidestepped many questions about the White House. Basically, the Philadelphia Eagles cornerback did an entire interview silently- answering questions by holding up signs that illustrated how National Football League players are protesting police brutality and racial injustice, NOT disrespecting troops or the flag. They've done so much good.

"I love Chris and Malcolm", he said.

Kerr admitted that he was "blown away by the irony of the Eagles being disinvited".
