What Warriors are doing to the Cavs is just mean by Zach Lowe

NBA reacts to President Trump disinviting Philadelphia Eagles to White House.

“It’s typical of him. I mean, I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway. It won’t be Golden State or Cleveland going” – LeBron James

“Winning a Super Bowl or winning a Stanley Cup or winning a World Series or winning an NBA Championship or National Championship — is way bigger than getting invited to the White House, especially with him in there, in my opinion.”

“The President has made it pretty clear he’s going to try to divide us, all of us in this country, for political gain. So it’s just the way it is. I think we all look forward to the day when we can go back to just having a celebration of athletic achievement” – Steve Kerr

“It will be nice when we can just get back to normal in three years.” – Steve Kerr

“What else do you expect Trump to do? When somebody says they don’t want to come to the White House, he disinvites them so the photo op don’t look bad. We get it at this point. It’s good that guys are sticking to what they believe in and what they want to do. Like guys said before me, I’m sure whoever wins this series won’t be going.” – Kevin Durant

Fun Fact: 25% of NBA players are international
