With the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors still battling to decide the NBA Championship — Golden State currently holds a 2-0 lead in the series with Game 3 set for Wednesday — key players on both teams reacted to the dispute between Donald Trump and the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles.
Deadline reports that both LeBron James of the Cavaliers and Stephen Curry of the Warriors spoke out about Trump’s cancellation of the Eagles’ invitation to the White House for the traditional championship celebration.
“I know whoever wins this series, no one wants an invite,” James is quoted saying.
Curry later added in an interview: “I agree with ‘Bron. Pretty sure the way we handled things last year, kinda staying consistent with that.”
Curry’s Warriors, who won the NBA title last year, opted out of the traditional meeting with the president.
