National Basketball Association champion won't be invited to White House

National Basketball Association champion won't be invited to White House

Trump still expects the 2018 Stanley Cup Champions, the Washington Capitals, to visit the White House. He said he expected the newly crowned National Hockey League champion Washington Capitals to attend but added, "if they don't want to be here, I don't want them". He also said he spoke with a current Eagles player about that team's decision-making process and how it went deeper than disagreeing with Trump's policies. Something tells us they'll be just fine without a White House visit.

Trump's statement comes two days after Cleveland star James said neither team wanted an invitation from Trump and they had no plans on visiting the White House.

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. "Like guys said before me, I'm sure whoever wins this series won't be going". "It won't be Golden State or Cleveland going", James said ahead of Game 3 on Wednesday. How can you not invite someone over, when they had no intention of showing up anyhow?

President Donald Trump said Friday that neither team would be invited. Trump canceled the Eagles' visit after the team tried to reschedule at the last minute and because only a handful of players and staff were planning to attend. Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and others echoed James' sentiment.

In September, Trump revoked an invitation to the Warriors following their victory a year ago over the Cavaliers after Curry had said he would vote against a planned visit to meet Trump at the White House. "We all look forward to the day we can go back to just having a celebration of athletic achievement".

What did Trump say in response?

"Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!" "Winning [a championship] is way bigger than getting invited to the White House, especially with him in there". But we already knew the Warriors and the Cavaliers weren't going to go.

"I think as long as he's in office, then the communication and things like that are going to continue to happen", the athlete said of Trump.

Warriors guard Stephen Curry is on the same page.
