Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James, in a dig at President Trump, said that whichever team wins the NBA Finals would not want an invite to the White House.
Stephen Curry, one of his Golden State Warriors rivals, said he agreed.
James was asked about his thoughts on Trump and the White House canceling its ceremony to celebrate the Philadelphia Eagles’ Super Bowl victory after many players declined to show up. Trump, in a statement, said the team was “unable” to attend the ceremony because many players didn’t agree with his belief that they should “proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.”
James told USA Today, “It’s typical of him [Trump]. I know no matter who wins this series no one wants to get invited to go.”
James also criticized the president for not inviting WNBA champions the Minnesota Lynx to the White House, The Hill reported.
