LeBron James Reveals What He Was Thinking During Cavs’ Game 1 Fiasco

Stephen Curry's sentiment over the White House invitation pulled from the Philadelphia Eagles doesn't stray far from his counterpart LeBron James, who noted that regardless of the victor of this NBA Finals, neither team would be willing to attend it under a Donald Trump presidency.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are heading back home down 0-2 in the NBA Finals following last night's 122-103 loss to the Warriors at Oracle Arena and the heart-breaking defeat in Game 1 on Thursday night.

"That would have helped but more than that, LeBron showed poor leadership there and I'm sure he knows that by now. I don't know if I had enough time because I was kind of a little bit still in shock of what was going on at that point in time", James said. So, it's not surprising hearing the news today with the Eagles. The Warriors have a 2-0 series lead over the Cavs.

Curry said the team has been on the same page after his comments previous year and Trump's subsequent revoking of the Warriors' invitation. "So I would upgrade him to questionable", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Tuesday before Iguodala practiced in preparation for the NBA Finals Game 3 on Wednesday.

James called the decision by Trump "typical of him".

"Every team has the right to speak for themselves in that situation and I think that's big". Many members of the U.S. Olympic Team that competed earlier this year in South Korea did not attend a White House reception.

Numerous people responded to Trump, including Eagles players, noting among other things that few players were going to attend, anyway, and that no Eagles player kneeled during the playing of the national anthem last season.

"The President has made it pretty clear he's going to try and divide us, all of us in this country for political gain".

LeBron James said this afternoon that neither the Cavaliers nor the Warriors will visit the White House next year if they win.

A win for Stephen Curry and Golden State would all but render the remainder of the series a formality, as no NBA team has ever crawled back from a 3-0 hole to win an NBA Finals series - or any NBA playoff series, as the Boston Globe pointed out.

"You have to understand that what players have protested is not the military", Kerr said.

Kerr added that he was not surprised by Trump's rescinding of the invitation to the Eagles. "We're used to the dynamic of being ahead in a series and then having everything shift when you go on the road - especially when you play Cleveland".
