"No, I didn't invite LeBron James, and I didn't invite Steph Curry".

"I think we'll have the Caps", Trump said.

This was a response to LeBron James saying that neither the Warriors or Cavaliers would be going to the White House, no matter what team won.

The NBA championship series isn't over yet but President Trump has preemptively uninvited top NBA players from future White House visits; reaction from the "Your World" Generation Hexed panel.

"That was one of the great memories for me in my career", Kerr said.

"It's typical of him", James said of cancelling the Eagles visit. "I know no matter who wins this series, no-one wants the invite anyway. It won't be Golden State or Cleveland going". "I mean, we'll see", Trump said. Many members of the US Olympic Team that competed earlier this year in South Korea did not attend a White House reception. "I'm here. If they don't want to be here, I don't want them".

Trump has lashed out at NFL players who kneel in protest during the national anthem before games. But we already knew the Warriors and the Cavaliers weren't going to go.

Professional and college sports teams have long celebrated championships with a ceremonial visit to the White House, but the tradition has become increasingly controversial under Trump.

Like past year, Trump is taking the decision out of their hands. But that's not going to stop Trump from pulling his classic 'we don't want you here anyway routine.' In fact, per Axios, that's exactly how he's handing the eventual National Basketball Association champions.

The Warriors, in lieu of going to the White House, spent that day taking a group of children to the National Museum of African American History and Culture a few miles away.

When asked about the WNBA Minnesota Lynx not even being offered an invitation for a White House visit after they won their title, James said it didn't surprise him. His teammate, Kevin Durant, also spoke about the Eagles' move before as well.

Kerr said Trump is making things "into a political game".
