This year's NBA Finals has been notably contentious. The Cavs and Warriors are clearly sick of each other, and the animosity has resulted in a few testy moments in the first two games of the series.
There is at least one item, however, on which the teams agree: neither wants an invite to the White House if they win the NBA title.
The NBA Finals competitors addressed the situation Tuesday as they await Wednesday's Game 3. LeBron James, who has previously made his disdain for Trump crystal clear, said his team would not want a White House invite, which traditionally goes to the league champ.

LeBron was not alone. Golden State star Steph Curry echoed King James' sentiment shortly afterward.

Trump last year also withdrew the Warriors' White House invitation after they made it clear they did not plan to attend. Instead, Golden State elected to take Washington, D.C., students to the National Museum of African American History and Culture in February.
After an impressive Game 2, the Warriors currently lead the Finals 2-0 as the series shifts to Quicken Loans Arena.
