Trump Won't Invite The Cavaliers Or The Warriors To The White House

It has been a long-standing tradition for championship teams to visit the White House, but there has been some controversy since President Donald Trump took the office.

Actually, Stephen Curry and LeBron James jointly decided before Friday's game that neither one meant to pay President Trump a White House visit after a win.

Last year Trump uninvited the Golden State Warriors after Curry said he wasn't going anyway.

Warriors star Stephen Curry agreed with James, saying his team will likely repeat their stance from last season if they win the championship again. "Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!" he wrote in 2017.

A day after Trump revoked an invitation to the National Football League champion Philadelphia Eagles to visit the White House amid reports fewer than 10 players would take part, the NBA's elite closed ranks to condemn the president.

On the day the Philadelphia Eagles were supposed to be visiting the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl championship, participants in the 2018 NBA Finals ripped President Donald Trump and made it clear the NBA champion won't be going to White House, either.

Capcom Have Finally Revealed Devil May Cry V
Capcom has a presence at E3 2018 , so we could potentially hear more from Devil May Cry 5 at some other point during the week. Don't worry, the teaser ended with a quick appearance from original Devil May Cry protagonist Dante as well.

"It's typical of him, I'm not surprised..." "U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going!"

"I agree with Bron", Curry said. "I'm here", he told reporters at the White House. "I'm here. If they don't want to be here, I don't want them", he said. "Let's hear it for the Eagles!" he shouted, as audience members booed him.

Durant teamed up with stars like Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green make the Warriors an unbeatable dream team.

"Let's not let that accomplishment of things that you will have for the rest of your life, and people will always call you a champion for the rest of your life, let's not let someone uninviting you to their house take away from that moment", he continued.

Trump, meanwhile, said he was unfazed by snubs from the champion teams of the two most popular sports in the United States, citing other teams who had attended. "The way we handled things a year ago. we'll stay consistent with that".

As Curry noted, past year the Warriors, who had just won the 2017 National Basketball Association championship, had a serious discussion about whether the team would visit the White House if they were invited.
