'No-one wants your White House invitation' LeBron tells Trump

LeBron James said this afternoon that neither the Cavaliers nor the Warriors will visit the White House next year if they win. For the most part, LeBron didn't say a word as he sat in silence a seat away from Smith - who had apparently forgotten the score in the final seconds.
"I know no matter who wins this series, no-one wants the invite anyway".
"It's typical of him", James said of Trump.
Curry said the team has been on the same page after his comments previous year and Trump's subsequent revoking of the Warriors' invitation.
Trump pulled the invitation shortly after, although it was never formally extended, knowing that the team-wide sentiment, from coach to players - would be to pass on the opportunity.
The Warriors are facing the Cavaliers in the Finals for the fourth successive season and now lead the series 2-0 after following an initial action-packed 124-114 overtime victory with a comfortable 122-103 win at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California on Sunday night. "But I don't think it was intentional". Pretty sure the way we handled things past year, kind of stay consistent with that. Their role-players are usually strong in front of the home-crowd, and they will need all their contributions to bring the series back to 2-1 in Game 3 on Wednesday night (Thursday morning IST). Many members of the U.S. Olympic Team that competed earlier this year in South Korea did not attend a White House reception.
No matter whose team wins the National Basketball Association championship, neither superstar will be at the White House anytime soon. "Like guys said before me, I'm sure whoever wins this series won't be going".
James also said that the WNBA Minnesota Lynx not even receiving an invitation to the White House was "laughable".
Trump set off a firestorm Monday when he announced there would be no customary White House visit for the Super Bowl champions, alluding to NFL players kneeling for the national anthem and the ensuing controversy last season.
"Klay definitely wants to play his whole career in Golden State and the Bay Area - there's no question about that", Mychal said.
"You've got to pick that guy up, not dwell on the negatives, but pick him up, move on and try to win in overtime". "We get it at this point".
Speaking with reporters Tuesday afternoon, Thompson said he'd be fine for Game 3. President Trump eventually rescinded the team's invite. "And the fact that Draymond sees me that way means a lot".
"We look forward to the challenge".
