LeBron James: Whoever wins National Basketball Association championship won't want White House invite

LeBron James: Whoever wins National Basketball Association championship won't want White House invite

"I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway".

"I know it's not the exact same team, but we had them down 3-1 a couple years ago". "Pretty sure the way we handled things past year, kinda staying consistent with that".

Stephen Curry and coach Steve Kerr's Golden State Warriors have repeatedly said they want to build something special for the long haul, to compete for championships year after year.

President Donald Trump canceled an invite Tuesday for the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles to visit this White House, announcing to hold a different ceremony instead for the 1,000 fans who planned on attending the event.

James, who is participating in the National Basketball Association finals with the Cleveland Cavaliers, said that neither his team nor the Golden State Warriors want an invitation to a similar event celebrating their teams at the White House.

With the Cavs trailing 0-2 in the series, Game 3 will be Wednesday night in Cleveland.

China: Tariffs by US would wipe out trade progress
The talks were focussed on getting China to move ahead with its recent promises to increase energy and farm imports from the U.S. The 50-member strong U.S. raised topics including additional Chinese purchases of USA exports.

LeBron James couldn't follow up his NBA Finals career-high 51 points in this one, but still did everything he possibly could with a near triple-double of 26 points, 13 assists and 9 boards.

James showed up to both games in Oracle Arena wearing a suit with shorts on, and a lot of people poked fun at him for it.

"We've got to come out with a sense of urgency to start", Warriors forward Kevin Durant said. "We won a championship, but me personally, I mean, there were just so many other plays in that game that helped us get that championship that were just as important", he said. "We've got to move on, move forward". When somebody says they don't want to come to the White House, he disinvites them so the photo op don't look bad. "I don't buy this whole thing that he's playing with a bunch of garbage".

Durant especially, a player likely to crack the mythical 30,000 points mark, has plenty to gain in all-time discussions should the Warriors win, so history has often been a topic of conversation for Durant.

LeBron added Trump's decision to revoke the Eagles' invitation was "typical of him" and that he stood for a lot things Americans do not believe in.
