Stars in NBA Finals say they don't want White House invite

Draymond Green and Tristan Thompson

'I can't say I was sure of anything at that point' - Cavs' J.R Smith owns up to monumental gaffe in NBA finals game one

"I'm pretty sure the way we handled things previous year, (we will) kinda stay consistent with that", Curry said Tuesday when asked whether the Warriors would skip the visit should they win this time. "Pretty sure the way we handled things past year, we'd stay consistent with that". His work also appears in Mic, Salon, Care2, Huffington Post and other publications.

Kerr added that he was not surprised by Trump's rescinding of the invitation to the Eagles.

The vehicle carrying Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari pulls up outside of the West Wing of the White House on April 30, 2018 in Washington, DC.

The Warriors were the first team to unanimously refrain from making the now customary visit to the White House, choosing instead to go to a museum alongside local youth from Kevin Durant's hometown in Seat Pleasant, Maryland. James gestured wildly at him, but time expired without the Cavs getting off a decent shot. They'll get to know me as a person, I was confident with that. "But I don't think it was intentional".

"Me being criticized? I don't believe that", he said sarcastically.

LeBron also ripped Trump for not inviting the WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx to the White House. 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). Trump has often blasted the NFL players who have kneeled for the national anthem, a protest that started in 2016 when San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick did so to protest racism and more specifically the killing of black men by police. "We're used to the dynamic of being ahead in a series and then having everything shift when you go on the road - especially when you play Cleveland".

"What else do you expect Trump to do?"

The latest injury update before Game 3 is an encouraging one for both players.

"We've just got to embrace whatever happens and look forward to a insane environment with a team that's desperate", Durant said.

"The President has made it pretty clear he's going to try and divide us, all of us in this country for political gain". "So, it's just the way it is". We're all looking forward to the day when we can go about celebrating Americans for their athletic achievements.

"The irony is that the Eagles have been nothing but fantastic citizens in their own community". "And the fact that Draymond sees me that way means a lot". Malcolm Jenkins, Chris Long - these guys are studs.
