President Trump not inviting NBA champions to White House

President Trump not inviting NBA champions to White House

"Like guys said before me, I'm sure whoever wins this series won't be going". "It won't be Cleveland or Golden State going." .

Earlier this week, Trump canceled the Philadelphia Eagles' visit to the White House, where they were supposed to be honored for their Super Bowl win from February.

Friday, Trump said that the eventual National Basketball Association champion - whether the Golden State Warriors or Cleveland Cavaliers - will not be invited to the White House, per CNN's Jim Acosta. It seems if Trump thinks a team is going to outshow him by not showing up, he just decides to uninvite them, as to not embarrass himself.

Stephen Curry, who's LeBron's opposition on the court, is on board with him on the anti-Trump train. And now, the President is trying to shift the narrative.

Trump's announcement echoes his sentiment from September, when he disinvited the 2017 champion Warriors and called out Stephen Curry in a tweet.

Washington's hockey team won the NHL championship on Thursday night with a 4-3 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights.

President Donald Trump has angered traditional American allies by slapping them with tariffs and pulling the United States out of global agreements such as the Paris climate agreement and the Iran nuclear deal.

The big prize: The Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy awarded to the victor of the NBA Finals.

"I think we'll have the Caps", Trump said. No Eagles took part in last season's kneeling demonstrations, which began as a way for black players to protest police treatment of minorities.

The Minnesota Lynx, the reigning WNBA champions, did not receive an invitation to the White House and instead spent a day performing community service in Washington this week. Villanova, the reigning NCAA men's champion, has not revealed if an invitation was sent. Both men said their teams would not visit the White House if invited.

It's the fourth consecutive year that the two teams have met in the finals.

When asked about the Eagles, Curry said any team that wins a championship will be faced with the decision of whether or not they will travel to the White House.

"So it's just the way it is". If you look, we had Alabama - national champion.

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

"What else do you expect Trump to do?" His teammate, Kevin Durant, also spoke about the Eagles' move before as well.

"If they don't want to be here, I don't want them". We get it at this point. "I'm here. If they don't want to be here, I don't want them", he said.

"I agree with Bron", Curry said.
