Trump says Cavs, Warriors won’t be invited to White House

After the majority of Philadelphia Eagles refused to visit The White House, Donald Trump disinvited the entire team. A new NFL policy announced last month allows dissenting players to stay in the locker room during the national anthem but Trump said "maybe they shouldn't be in the country".

"I'm not surprised", James said of Trump's behavior.

The tradition of championship teams visiting the White House has reached an abrupt stop as players and personnel voice their concerns about Donald Trump.

"My attitude, if they want to be here, it's the greatest place on earth". Take into account the fact that Trump disinvited the Golden State Warriors previous year and it makes even more sense.

Donald Trump is seemingly in the media every day now talking about either the National Basketball Association or NFL, and that was the case once again on Friday, saying that he wouldn't invite the Golden State Warriors or the Cleveland Cavaliers to the 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", James said.

The Warriors and Cavaliers will face off in Game 4 of the NBA Finals Friday with tipoff set for 9 p.m. ET.

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.

"It's just incredible. It is incredible", said Kerr, whose team leads the Cleveland Cavaliers 3-0 in the best-of-seven series. But it's good that guys are sticking to what they believe in and what they want to do.

Both the Cavs and Warriors visited the White House while Barack Obama was president following their championships.

"U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going!"

Meanwhile, the most recent sports champions to be crowned are the Washington Capitals, who wrapped up the Stanley Cup championship this week. "Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!"

The WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx also didn't receive an invitation from Trump and instead chose to a spend day of service in Washington, D.C., this week. His teammate, Kevin Durant, also spoke about the Eagles' move before as well. So the photo op don't look bad. Trump even said Friday he is considering posthumously pardoning boxer Muhammad Ali - unnecessary, considering the Supreme Court overturned his conviction in 1971.
