On Tuesday, basketball stars Lebron James and Stephen Curry of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors stated that regardless of who wins the NBA finals, neither of their teams would want to visit the White House. "I know whoever wins this series, us or Golden State, no one wants an invite". The move prompted a tweet from James, who wrote "U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going!"

Trump canceled the Eagles' visit after the team tried to reschedule at the last minute and because only a handful of players and staff were planning to attend. It seemed to be a moot point, as LeBron James said Tuesday that neither his Cavaliers nor the Warriors would accept a visit.

"My attitude, if they want to be here, it's the greatest place on Earth, I'm here,"said Trump".

"I didn't invite them". So therefore ain't no invite.

"Congratulations to the Washington Capitals on their GREAT play and winning the Stanley Cup Championship". So Trump, to spare himself the snub, disinvited the team because, he said, they disagree with him about standing for the national anthem - even though all members of the Eagles stood for the anthem all season long.
