No White House invite for National Basketball Association champs, 'we'll see' about Caps

Warriors and Cavs Refuse to Visit White House

Warriors and Cavs Refuse to Visit White House

President Donald Trump told reporters Friday neither the Cleveland Cavaliers nor the Golden State Warriors will be invited to the White House once the NBA Finals are over.

After Curry said publicly he didn't want to go to the White House, Trump responded by saying the Warriors weren't invited. When told of LeBron's comments, Curry said that he agreed players from either team won't want an invite. "It won't be Golden State or Cleveland going".

Trump drew heavy criticism again this week for uninviting the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl win and instead threw a Celebration of America event where some white attendees kneeled and protested and even heckled him. Curry and the Cavaliers' top player, LeBron James, already have said they would not want to make the trip this year. He said he expected the newly crowned National Hockey League champion Washington Capitals to attend but added, "if they don't want to be here, I don't want them". "I'm here. If they don't want to be here, I don't want them". So therefore ain't no invite. We had the New England Patriots.

Trump said Friday that the Washington Capitals, who clinched the Stanley Cup on Thursday night, are likely to be invited.

James had a lot more to say about Trump in 2018 after game 2, adding that the president's decision to rescind an invite to the Philadelphia Eagles was "typical of him".


Earlier this week, both James and Curry said they were not expecting an invitation this year.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he will not host either the Cleveland Cavaliers or Golden State Warriors at the White House, echoing the controversy over the National Basketball Association champ Warriors' invitation previous year.

Curry agreed with James, alluding to what his team did last season after winning the National Basketball Association title.

CEA Chair Kevin Hassett, whose office is responsible for the internal analysis, avoided answering numerous questions about economic effects of Trump's tariffs during a White House press briefing on Tuesday. "I think we all look forward to the day when we can go back to just having a celebration of athletic achievement and celebrate Americans for their achievement, their good deeds". 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".
