Whichever team wins the NBA championship, President Donald Trump says he won't be inviting them to the White House.
"I didn't invite LeBron James, and I didn't invite Steph Curry. We're not going to invite either team," Mr. Trump told reporters on Friday.
But Mr. Trump said he'd be happy to host the Washington Capitals, who just won the Stanley Cup for the first time in the club's 44-year history.
He said: "If they want to be here, it's the greatest place on Earth. I'm here. If they don't want to be here, I don't want them."

good, I don’t think sports people should be showed any deference anyhow.
Doesn’t invite champs: NBA fans hate President Trump
Legalizes marijuana: NBA fans LOVE President Trump
Why should we waste tax payer resources on the NBA?
Bet he invites the Capitals, and of course Ovechkin will show up, to the cries of “Collusion!”
Why would Trump invite them when they already said they would not come?
Think about what you asked for a minute. You’ll figure it out.
He has the option to invite those who win sports events, but he cannot make them into winners.
How are these athletes supposed to virtue signal their loathing of President Trump by turning down his invitation to the White House when he doesn’t invite them in the first place?
I like his decision
I believe Pres. Trump has signaled to the public that they don’t have to trudge faithfully to NBA games, either.
I hope he doesn’t do the same to the National Hockey League. Those teams have many patriots among them.
Well, LeBraindead already said neither team would come, if invited.
Since Devante Smith-Pelly has already said he will sit out a WH visit, in the interest of “team soilidarity”, I think President Trump should rescind his invitation to ther Caps.
That way he can be a “uniter” instead of a “divider.”
I’ve given up on all pro sports. The thing that will hurt the most is not playing Fantasy Football with my family this year.
Screw them anyway
But those brainwashed imbeciles wouldve shown up for a backstabbing, anti American traitor like HilLIAR
And thats all you need to know about queen James and steffie
LeBron said “whoever wins” - neither team would go.
Hey LeBron! Only one team will win and it aint your sorry a$$!
