After the majority of Philadelphia Eagles refused to visit The White House, Donald Trump disinvited the entire team. Now, with the winners of the 2018 NBA Playoffs still up in the air, Trump is taking precaution by pre-disinviting whoever ends up being the championship team.
“I didn’t invite LeBron James and I didn’t invite Steph Curry. We’re not going to invite either team. But we have other teams that are coming," he said during a White House press conference, according to the New York Daily News.
Yes, he's that petty. It's no secret that either team are fans of Trump. Most recently, LeBron James spoke on Trump dis-inviting the Eagles.
"It’s typical of him. I mean, I’m not surprised," he said during a press conference, according to the Chicago Tribune. "Let’s not let someone uninviting you to their house take away from that moment…Winning [a championship] is way bigger than getting invited to the White House, especially with him in there."
Stephen Curry, who's LeBron's opposition on the court, is on board with him on the anti-Trump train. When the Golden State Warriors won the championship last year, he denied the invitation to go last year. Of course, he was properly uninvited afterward. His teammate, Kevin Durant, also spoke about the Eagles' move before as well.
"What else do you expect Trump to do?" said Durant, according to The Washington Post. "When somebody says they don't want to come to the White House, he disinvites them so the photo op don't look bad. We get it at this point. It's good that guys are sticking to what they believe in and what they want to do. Like guys said before me, I'm sure whoever wins this series won't be going."
We guess Trump heard him and decided to heed his warning. Sounds like another win for whoever nabs the championship.
The Cavs face off against the Warriors again tonight. Warriors are up 3-0.
