In the wake of President Donald Trump tweeting this Saturday morning that he would be “withdrawing” Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry’s invite to visit the White House in honor of the Warriors NBA title, Basketball legend LeBron James gave Trump a piece of his mind.
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!

Curry had already made it quite clear that he had no intention of visiting the White House, despite his teams invite, after winning the 2017 NBA championship.
“I don’t want to go. That’s the nucleus of my belief. If it was just me, it would be a pretty short conversation,” Curry explained to reporters during a media day for the team.
James had also said that he would not have made a visit to the White House if his team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, had been the victors.
“Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team, Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!” Trump expressed in a tweet, which sort of came off like a child who is hurt by a friend for not attending their birthday party.

Curry and James played each other two years in a row during the NBA finals, which is heartwarming as it seems even though the two’s rivalry for the ages, hasn’t affected their friendship.
