No matter whose team wins the NBA championship Authentic Keke Coutee Jersey , neither superstar will be at the White House anytime soon.
On the day when the Philadelphia Eagles were supposed to be there to commemorate winning the Super Bowl – a visit that was canceled by President Donald Trump and had the White House accusing players who weren’t planning on attending of abandoning their fans – Curry and James were among those speaking out at the NBA Finals in support of the Eagles.
”I’m not surprised. It’s typical of him,” James, the Cleveland star, said Tuesday of Trump’s decision to cancel. ”I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway. So it won’t be Golden State or Cleveland going.”

Trump said the Eagles’ event was called off because some of their players ”disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.”
No Eagles players kneeled during the anthem last season.
