Golden State Warriors comment on National Basketball Association finals and Trump

His comments came after he was asked about his thoughts on President Donald Trump rescinding the Super Bowl champion Eagles' invitation to the White House.

LeBron James called it "typical" and added that the team that wins this series doesn't want an invitation from Trump and won't be going to the White House. "I'm not surprised, It's typical of him", James told reporters Tuesday.

"I think winning a Super Bowl, a Stanley Cup, a World Series, an NBA Championship or a National Championship is way bigger than getting invited to the White House - especially with him in there, in my opinion". "It won't be Cleveland or Golden State going".

"He's basically making a very simple request that when the National Anthem is played at a sporting event, people stand, and people respect that and I know everybody saying but nobody need, nobody - they're obviously are some hurt feelings over the new policy".

Warriors coach Steve Kerr, a frequent critic of Trump, said teams look forward to returning to the White House under a new leader.

LeBron James does not see a White House visit as a possibility for the Cavaliers or the Warriors. They are not planning to visit the White House if they can close out the series and win their second straight National Basketball Association title.

James and Curry spoke to the media ahead of Wednesday's Game 3 in Cleveland, when the Cavs will try to claw back from a 2-0 deficit in the seven-game series.

With criticism mounting throughout the morning Tuesday, the White House issued a statement defending its decision because Eagles players had "abandoned" their fans. The Players Coalition, which was founded by Jenkins and former National Football League wideout Anquan Boldin, is gearing up to make a big push on bail reform, so the Eagles trio participated in an hour-and-a-half session with the chief defenders to help formulate an action plan to make the best use of their efforts and influence. "Before the anthem even started, players were involved in these types of social justice issues", Jenkins said. Staying in the Locker Room for the playing of our National Anthem is as disrespectful to our country as kneeling.

James said he learned Trump had uninvited the Eagles on his way to the podium and said he hadn't digested the information yet.

Typically, tickets to White House celebrations for sports champions are highly coveted commodities.
