LaVar Ball supports Warriors avoiding Donald Trump, White House

CLEVELAND OH- JUNE 06 Kevin Durant #35 of the Golden State Warriors throws a pass around

CLEVELAND OH- JUNE 06 Kevin Durant #35 of the Golden State Warriors throws a pass around

Trump suggested the Washington Capitals, who won the Stanley Cup, will visit the White House.

"We're not going to invite either team", Trump told reporters at the White House.

The statement said the players refused to go because of Trump's insistence they stand for the national anthem, but several Eagles players have said that was not the case.

Last year, the Warriors took their time to make an official team decision on whether they'd visit the White House after winning the National Basketball Association title.

In a similar situation past year, Trump uninvited the Warriors from visiting the White House after Curry and other prominent members of the team said they weren't interested in attending a ceremony.

"When somebody says they don't want to come to the White House, he disinvites them so the photo op don't look bad".

"I'm not surprised. It's typical of him", James, the Cleveland star, said Tuesday of Trump's decision to cancel. 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. "It won't be Cleveland or Golden State going", James said, according to ESPN, which wrote that the remark was made in an off-day news conference before game 3. It's good that guys are sticking to what they believe in and what they want to do. At the time, James took to social media to support Curry.

"Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team".

Patriotism, Samuel Johnson told us long ago, is the last refuge of a scoundrel.

"I think we'll have the Caps". "It won't be Cleveland or Golden State going".

Curry concurred with James, saying "I agree with 'Bron".

The tradition of championship teams visiting the White House has reached an abrupt stop as players and personnel voice their concerns about Donald Trump. Either way, this may not be the last we hear from LaVar on the topic of White House visits, especially if the Los Angeles Lakers are able to surround Lonzo Ball with premium talent this summer.
