Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr had some harsh words for President Trump after he disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles from the White House this week.

Less than 10 members of the Philadelphia Eagles decided they would show up to the White House to take part in the festivities, but it would never come to that after President Donald Trump uninvited the entire organization. "But it's typical of him", James said.

"I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite [to the White House] anyways", he said. "A championsahip is way bigger than getting invited to the White House, especially with him in there". "It won't be Golden State or Cleveland going". But I think I agree with LeBron.

Like the Eagles, the Warriors were also "uninvited" from visiting the White House in celebration of their 2016-17 National Basketball Association title, but that was only after Steph Curry publicly stated that the team had no desire to take part in the tradition.

The Cavaliers' LeBron James and the Warriors' Stephen Curry both separately stated that should their team win the championship, they will not visit the White House.

Their teams are facing each other in the NBA Finals for the fourth consecutive season, and Golden State holds a 2-0 advantage in the best-of-seven series.

Jack Brewer, a former National Football League star who played for the Philadelphia Eagles, on Wednesday defended his former teammates after President Trump cancelled the ceremony to celebrate their Super Bowl victory. Some Warriors said they would not attend a White House ceremony previous year, shortly after Golden State won the NBA Finals.

"An opportunity, I think, was floated around as an idea", Jenkins said of a sit-down with President Donald Trump. "The way we handled things a year ago, we'd stay consistent with that".

Jenkins says the White House made a decision "to lie, and paint the picture that these players are anti-America, anti-flag and anti-military".

To White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the Eagles players who had refused to attend the event before it was canceled were staging a "political stunt".

Of course, according to the actual people who played for the Eagles, no Eagles players knelt during the anthem during the 2017 regular season, and their reasons for passing on the White House event had nothing to do with the anthem.
