No Nonsense From LeBron James On How He Would Treat Invite From Donald Trump

No Nonsense From LeBron James On How He Would Treat Invite From Donald Trump
By PJ Browne

LeBron James has said that no matter who wins this year's NBA final, neither his Cavaliers or the Warriors will be accepting an invite to the White House from Donald Trump.

On Monday, the US President revoked an invite to the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles after it emerged just a small delegation from the team would be attending the White House.

"It's typical of him, I'm not surprised," said James on Tuesday.

"I know, no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyways. It won't be Golden State or Cleveland going.

"People in Philadelphia shouldn't let this news take away from what that team did. Let's not let that accomplishment, things that you will have for the rest of your life, let's not let someone uninviting you to their house take away from that moment.

"I think winning a Super Bowl, a Stanley Cup, a World Series, an NBA Championship or a National Championship is way bigger than getting invited to the White House - especially with him in there, in my opinion."

James also said that the WNBA Minnesota Lynx not even receiving an invitation to the White House was "laughable".


Warriors point guard Steph Curry, who has led his side to a 2-0 NBA Finals lead, said that just like last year, his team will not be attending the White House if manage to claim this year's title.

I hope to be in that situation and win two more games where we win a championship and obviously know what comes with that. But I think I agree with LeBron. Pretty sure the way we handled things last year, kind of stay consistent with that.
