NBA Odds: Oddsmakers Not (Yet) Buying LeBron James-Celtics Speculation

Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors celebrates with Kevin Durant and Shaun Livingston against the Cleveland Cavaliers in overtime during Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena

Both spoke a day after Trump revoked an invitation to the National Football League champion Philadelphia Eagles to visit the White House amid reports fewer than 10 players would take part in the traditional trip to celebrate a major United States sports crown.

In 2017, they lost Game 3 and bounced back in Game 4 with a historic offensive showing, only to then lose Game 5 in Golden State despite a 41-point performance from LeBron James. "I mean, I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway". This trade would be great for the Mavs going forward and may be a good step towards helping Cleveland get over the Golden State hump.

When asked Tuesday if he was surprised that things remain in the same place, James said matters won't change as long as Trump is president.

"I felt that way about J.R. that way in that moment... but if you're LeBron James and you're the leader, you have to get past that immediately".

James also argued that winning a championship is "way bigger than getting to the White House, especially with [Trump] in there".

Curry said the team has been on the same page after his comments past year and Trump's subsequent revoking of the Warriors' invitation.

His sentiment was shared by rival Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, who said in an interview: "I agree with 'Bron".

LeBron James does not see a White House visit as a possibility for the Cavaliers or the Warriors.

And by the way, no Eagles player knelt or sat for the national anthem all season. "I think that's powerful, being in this situation". I think that's important.

"I chose to speak out on me not wanting to go to the White House past year".

Iggy missed the final four games of the Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets and the first two games of the NBA Finals vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers.

ESPN reported multiple Warriors were unhappy with Perkins for not moving out of the way, citing the play was especially disturbing considering Curry's history with ankle and knee injuries. I thought just the scoring that he gave us off the bench and the defensive toughness and rebounding and everything, he's a guy who gets it.

Kerr closed with a defense of athlete activism, "You have to understand that what players have protested is not the military". "We're in the NBA Finals - how much more picking up teammates do you want me to do?"

He not only put Allens eight-year standard to the dustbin, Curry, too, set the all-time record for 3-pointers in the NBA Finals (90). Trump, like he did with the Eagles, disinvited the Warriors once he heard the news. "The President has made it pretty clear he's going to try and divide us all in the country for political gain".

"The irony is that the Eagles have been nothing but fantastic citizens in their own community".
