NBA stars reject Accolades from White House


Few days after U.S President Donald Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles on the eve of their visit after it was obvious that fewer than 10 players would attend.

NBA stars LeBron James and Steph Curry both backed the Philadelphia Eagles in the team’s decision not to visit the White House in celebration of its championship win Tuesday.

Trump canceled the visit Monday evening after it was publicly stated that fewer than 10 Eagles players planned to go to the White House.


Trump swapped the meeting with a concert of the national anthem and a celebration of the US flag.

“It’s typical. I’m not surprised,” James said of the president’s decision to cancel the NFL event at the 11th hour. “I mean, I know no matter who wins the series, no one wants to go anyway. So it won’t be the Cavaliers or the Warriors going.”

“It’s typical of him

Curry concurred.

“I hope to be in that situation where we win two more games, and I agree with ‘Bron,” he said in a press conference.
