NBA Refs To Engage With Fans On Twitter During Game 3

Grant SmithJun 07, 2018

"It won't be Cleveland or Golden State going", James said during an off-day news conference on Tuesday. "We've been here the last three years for Game 3".

Earlier this week, President Donald Trump reignited the debate over championship-winning teams visiting 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, as he rescinded the invitation for Super Bowl LII winners Philadelphia Eagles after learning numerous players did not plan to attend.

Curry just broke the NBA Finals record by making 9 three-point shots before he and his teammates won the game on Sunday 122-103.

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers stands on the court during their game against the Golden State Warriors at ORACLE Arena on January 16, 2017 in Oakland, California.

But when Lue confirmed that the Cavaliers did, in fact, have a timeout, James' body appeared to nearly give out in a combination of frustration and anger at the way Cleveland had blown such a golden opportunity to open the Finals with a victory.

I'm assuming that everyone who reads this blog was watching game one of the NBA Finals last week so I am not going to recount moment-by-moment the last four seconds of that game. Will the victor of the series - and let's be real, it looks like it'll be the Warriors - take the customary visit to the White House? "I don't think I'm the problem that they want, though, might want to pick another battle".

The statements by James and Curry follow the recent rescinded invitation of the Super Bowl Champions, the Philadelphia Eagles, due to the NFL's national anthem controversy. "I got to the bench, first thing that came to my mind I was like, 'OK, I was calling a timeout.' But hopefully, I'm glad maybe if we didn't have any, I'm glad they didn't give it to me. If you focus on who is saying the right things, you shouldn't get lost in the noise that's going on right now". An especially sore point came when Curry tripped James, who fell.

"Going to the White House was a great honor until you showed up!"

"There are a lot of things we believe in as Americans we don't believe he's for", James said.

"Everybody looked at me like I was insane", Durant said in an interview with The Athletic.

James said people should not forget the championship season the Eagles had because of the situation with Trump. In fairness to Stephen A., he simply said James would "have a conversation with Boston", while listing him among the suitors. "You laugh to stop from crying".

Curry snubbed Trump last September, noting having golfed with former President Barack Obama and adding, "I'm pretty sure I won't get a tee-time invite during this regime".

While they now hold a 2-0 series, the Warriors will be well aware of just how impressive the Cavaliers have been at home this postseason.
