LeBron James Responds To President Trump’s Latest Move

LeBron James Responds To President Trump’s Latest Move

Even in 2017, as James became the first player in National Basketball Association history to lead both teams in points, rebounds and assists.

In light of President Donald Trump uninviting the 2018 Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles to the White House, LeBron James said neither his Cleveland Cavaliers nor the Golden State Warriors would accept a visit as a victor of the NBA Finals.

"It's typical of him", James said.

'I don't know. I mean, I know no matter who wins this series, no-one wants the invite anyway, so. "So, it won't be Golden State or Cleveland going".

The Warriors are facing the Cavaliers in the Finals for the fourth successive season and now lead the series 2-0 after following an initial action-packed 124-114 overtime victory with a comfortable 122-103 win at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California on Sunday night.

When Golden State's Steph Curry was asked about Trump's actions, his response was simple: "I agree" with James, Curry said.

In 2014, Andre Iguodala won the MVP award after a more balanced Warriors' attack and Iguodala's defensive work on LeBron.

James has been vocally critical of President Trump several times in the past. There's a lot of people that believe he's not for the people or doing things that's right by the people.

It was initially valued at $15 million, but over time the budget was estimated to reach as high as $250 million. Google will not renew a contract to do artificial intelligence work for the US Pentagon , company sources say.

On Monday, the US President revoked an invite to the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles after it emerged just a small delegation from the team would be attending the White House. "A very tough challenge, as I mentioned before the series even started, going against these guys, going against this team", James said.

There has been clear tension between many star athletes and the current administration throughout the Trump presidency.

Mr Trump has feuded with National Football League players over the past year, blasting on-field protests in which players sat or kneeled during the national anthem to protest against racial bias in the USA criminal justice system, amid accusations of excessive use of force against black people by police. He brought his foundation's work to Philly when the Eagles signed him before the 2017 season. Villanova, the reigning NCAA men's champion, has not revealed if an invitation was sent.

There won't be an National Football League team visiting the White House this year. When the New England Patriots went past year, half the team chose not to attend.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr added to James' comments. "So it's just the way it is".

Kerr also lauded the Eagles for being what he called "fantastic citizens in their own community". There is also one thing we know about the Warriors: They get careless.

"What else do you expect Trump to do?" And there is still no evidence that Golden State has any idea how to stop LeBron. So the photo op don't look bad. "We get it at this point". When they are helping on LeBron's penetration, the one guy they're staying at home on is Kyle. "He's getting closer, and I'm hopeful that he can play".
