LeBron James and Steph Curry agree neither want to go to the White House

James and Curry spoke on what ESPN previously reported, that "a large group of Eagles players had decided not to attend, including most -- if not all -- of the black players," with fewer than ten players expected to show.

After President Donald Trump uninvited the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles to the White House for the customary winner's visit, LeBron James said neither his Cleveland Cavaliers nor the Golden State Warriors would accept a future appointment from Trump.

 

ESPN previously reported that "a large group of Eagles players had decided not to attend, including most -- if not all -- of the black players," with fewer than ten players expected to show.

I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants an invite anyway. It won't be Cleveland or Golden State going.

"As long as he's in office, then the communication and things like that are going to continue to happen," James said about Trump. "It's a lot of things that we believe in as Americans that we don't feel that he's for. There are a lot of people that believe that he's not for the people or doing things that's right by the people."

 

Curry spoke in agreement with James, and also made note of what he knows from the perspective of the Eagles players.

 

"I know a guy from the Eagles, wide receiver who played on the Super Bowl-winning team last year, and he broke it down pretty verbatim of how his process went with his discussions with his teammates and how he wanted to keep the focus on what the conversation should be and not the anthem and not Trump's policies and how he's been overshadowing the NFL and all that type of stuff," said Curry.

 

"So, that's refreshing that he's educating people along the way. I think that's important. If you focus on who is saying the right things, you shouldn't get lost in the noise that's going on right now."
