Pres. Trump not inviting National Basketball Association champions to White House

Noah Ferguson | 10 June, 2018, 21:23

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said Friday that United States President Donald Trump announcing he won't invite the 2018 NBA Finals victor to the White House causes "a bit of resignation that this is where we find ourselves".

"I'm going to ask them to recommend to me people who were unfairly treated", said Trump at the White House Friday.

"We're not going to invite either team", Trump told reporters at the White House.

"I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway", James told reporters on Tuesday, via the Washington Post.

Looks like yet another sports team won't be celebrating a championship win with a visit to the White House.

In response to the Eagles news, the Cavaliers' LeBron James said, "That's typical of him. But I'm really proud of the people in this country who are recognizing what's happening and instead of turning this into a political game, they're just trying to do good deeds because that's what it takes". So therefore ain't no invite. Only a small delegation of the franchise was reportedly set to make the trip to the White House.

Trump, however, said he would welcome a visit by the National Hockey League's Washington Capitals, which won the Stanley Cup on Thursday night.

James added that Trump's decision should not take away from the Eagles' success.

Both the Cavs and Warriors visited the White House while Barack Obama was president following their championships. "It's a lot of things that we believe in as Americans that we don't feel that he's for".

Even President Donald Trump's own economic team thinks the president's new trade policies are likely to hurt the U.S. economy. So, it's not surprising hearing the news today with the Eagles.

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. "I mean, I'm not surprised", he said during a press conference, according to the Chicago Tribune.

He then expressed the "irony" about the Eagles being uninvited to the White House.

Curry concurred with James, saying "I agree with 'Bron".
