LeBron James Says Cavs or Warriors Won’t Visit White House After NBA Finals

LeBron James, Steph Curry, NBA Finals

No matter which team wins this year’s NBA Finals, don’t expect to see them at the White House.

Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James said that neither he or the Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry will visit President Donald Trump after the series is over.

“I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway,” James said at a press conference when asked about Trump’s recent decision to disinvite the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House.

Trump made his decision after a few Eagles players said they were not going to attend the White House celebration in honor of their Superbowl win.

Championship winning NBA teams have visited the White House in the past, under President Barack Obama, who was a fan of the sport.
