Darrell Davis: Kerr's Warriors are good, but bad for National Basketball Association

Earlier this week, members of both National Basketball Association teams - and especially James - ripped Trump over his decision to disinvite the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles and made it clear the eventual National Basketball Association champion wouldn't be going to the White House, either. A new National Football League policy announced last month allows dissenting players to stay in the locker room during the anthem but Mr. Trump said "maybe they shouldn't be in the country".

Curry and the Cavaliers' top player, LeBron James, already have said they would not want to make the White House trip this year.

In a similar situation a year ago, Trump uninvited the Warriors from visiting the White House after Curry and other prominent members of the team said they weren't interested in attending a ceremony.

"That was one of the great memories for me in my career", Kerr said.

Trump's announcement echoes his sentiment from September, when he disinvited the 2017 champion Warriors and called out Stephen Curry in a tweet.

Curry raised Trump's ire previous year when he said he wouldn't go to the White House, prompting the President to disinvite him and the champion Golden State Warriors. Earlier in the week, Cleveland's LeBron James wouldn't mince words, saying "I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants an invite anyway. It won't be Golden State or Cleveland going".

On the eve of game three of the Warriors-Cavaliers series led 2-0 by Golden State, politics dominated the conversation in Cleveland. "We're not going to invite either team", Trump said.

"You shouldn't go in a locker room when our national anthem is playing", he said. Golden State's Kevin Durant said. We get it at this point. Trump even said Friday he is considering posthumously pardoning boxer Muhammad Ali - unnecessary, considering the Supreme Court overturned his conviction in 1971.
