Adam Silver: 'Saddens Me' NBA Champion Won't Be Invited to White House

Shannon Reynolds | 10 June, 2018, 19:46

"I think we'll have the Caps, we'll see", Trump said outside the White House before departing for the G7 meeting in Quebec, two days after Caps standout winger Devante Smith-Pelly told Canada's National Post that he'd bail on any invite.

President Donald Trump said Friday that he would not be inviting the National Basketball Association champions to the White House this year - and that means the Golden State Warriors.

Looks like yet another sports team won't be celebrating a championship win with a visit to the White House.

The Minnesota Lynx, the reigning WNBA champions, did not receive an invitation to the White House and instead spent a day performing community service in Washington this week.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Trump had "made it pretty clear he's going to try to divide us. for political gain". When told of LeBron's comments, Curry said that he agreed players from either team won't want an invite. "When somebody says they don't want to come to the White House, he disinvites them". But it's good that guys are sticking to what they believe in and what they want to do.

Trump suggested the Washington Capitals, who won the Stanley Cup, will visit the White House. I think that's important.

Also on Friday, Trump said he would look at pardon applications suggested by National Football League players who protested during the anthem.

When asked about the Eagles, Curry said any team that wins a championship will be faced with the decision of whether or not they will travel to the White House.

Earlier this week, both James and Curry said they were not expecting an invitation this year. Last fall, James called the president a bum on Twitter, sticking up for Curry, who had said that if it were up to him, the Warriors would skip meeting Trump after last year's championship win against the Cavaliers.

He also said that winning a championship is much bigger than getting invited to the White House, "especially with him in it".

Even President Donald Trump's own economic team thinks the president's new trade policies are likely to hurt the U.S. economy. "I mean, I'm not surprised", he said during a press conference, according to the Chicago Tribune.
