LeBron, Curry, Durant say National Basketball Association champ won’t go to White House

Break Out the Brooms – Warriors Poised to Sweep Cavs

"I know regardless of who wins this series, no one wants an invite anyway, ' he said Tuesday, as quoted by ESPN's Mark Jones".

When Golden State's Steph Curry was asked about Trump's actions, his response was simple: "I agree" with James, Curry said. Pretty sure the way we handled things previous year, kind of stay consistent with that.

Last September, Trump revoked an invitation to the Warriors after they beat Cleveland in last year's final following remarks from Curry saying he didn't want to attend because he objected to Trump administration comments and policies. The Warriors guard felt Perkins, who did not move from his seat, should have made an attempt to get out of the way following Curry's wild 3-point attempt prior to the buzzer.

The Golden State Warriors took a 2-0 series lead and defended home court with a dominant 122-103 win in Game 2.

The Warriors point-guard agreed with LeBron's stance and hinted he was positively surprised a number of teams have followed the example set by Golden State a year ago.

"Let's not let someone inviting you from their house take away from their championship", James told reporters.

"For them not to be invited playing our handsome game of basketball. those women are unbelievable at doing it, I think it's laughable".

The decision came after Trump said the team wanted to send a smaller delegation due to the dispute over whether NFL players must stand during the playing of the national anthem.

The 76ers want him and reportedly are gaining confidence they could sign him.

"I got to the bench, first thing that came to my mind I was like, OK, I was calling a timeout". However, the Lakers are in the middle of a rebuild, and even adding James and another superstar like Paul George still has the team behind the Warriors and probably the Rockets.

One sportsbook manager said his book considers the Sixers LeBron's likeliest landing spot and the Cavs would jump to 12-1 if King James returns to the Land. "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".

"Everybody looked at me like I was insane", Durant said in an interview with The Athletic.

No members of the Eagles kneeled for the National Anthem this past season. In response, Trump disinvited the team.

Kerr closed with a defense of athlete activism, "You have to understand that what players have protested is not the military".

Smith said LeBron James will pursue conversations with the Celtics once he (inevitably) opts out of his contract with the Cavs. The Cavaliers just weren't connected defensively and it allowed the Warriors to get going early with McGee in the first quarter, but to their credit, they were able to weather the storm of the third quarter to give themselves half a chance in the fourth.
