Curry said on Friday that he didn’t want to visit the White House to celebrate the Warriors’ title — an event that has become tradition for championship-winning teams over the years. While the Warriors had not received a formal invitation, team officials were of the belief that one would likely be extended if the team voted on attending the White House.
“I don’t want to go,” Curry said, the stance he has taken since his Warriors beat James’ Cleveland Cavaliers for the championship in June.
To which Trump responded: “Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!”
LeBron James responded to Donald Trump’s tweet that rescinded Stephen Curry’s invitation to celebrate the Warriors’ championship at the White House.
James referred to Trump as a bum, defending Curry.
U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain’t going! So therefore ain’t no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!
