The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors are now battling it out in the NBA Finals, but regardless of the outcome, the franchise's star players say that their teams will not visit the White House after the series is over.
James said Trump's cancellation of the Eagles' visit to the White House was "typical of him".
"I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway", James said at a news conference at Quicken Loans Arena on Tuesday.
