There won't be an NFL team visiting the White House this year. President Trump announced on Monday night that he was cancelling the Philadelphia Eagles' trip to Washington, D.C. It was reported that only a small delegation of the franchise was going to make the visit to the White House.
There won't be an NBA team visiting the White House next year. Regardless of who wins this year's NBA Finals, there won't be a team making the trip to visit the president to celebrate it.
LeBron James said this afternoon that neither the Cavaliers nor the Warriors will visit the White House next year if they win.
James was also asked about President Trump's decision to cancel the Eagles' visit to the White House.
"It's typical of him," he told reporters.
James has been vocally critical of President Trump several times in the past. He also said that winning a championship is much bigger than getting invited to the White House, "especially with him in it."
This would make two years in a row that an NBA champion does not make the trip to the White House. The Warriors' visit was cancelled earlier this year. The franchise instead did a charity event in Washington, D.C.
Game 3 of the NBA Finals is set for Wednesday night. It'll tip off at 9 p.m. E.T. on ABC.
