President Trump said Friday he won’t be inviting the winner of the NBA Finals to the White House.

This comes after both Stephen Curry and LeBron James said no matter who wins the championship, neither team will be going to the White House. 

“I didn’t invite them,” President Trump said. “No, I didn’t invite Lebron James and I didn’t invite Steph Curry. We’re not going to invite either team, but we have other teams that are coming…you know my attitude: if they want to be here — its the greatest place on Earth — I’m here. If they don’t want to be here, I don’t want them.”

Last year, President Trump disinvited Curry and the Warriors after the Golden State superstar said he wouldn’t go.

On the day when the Philadelphia Eagles were supposed to be there to commemorate winning the Super Bowl — a visit that was canceled by President Donald Trump and had the White House accusing players who weren’t planning on attending of abandoning their fans — Curry and James were among those speaking out at the NBA Finals in support of the Eagles.

“I’m not surprised. It’s typical of him,” James, the Cleveland star, said Tuesday of Trump’s decision to cancel. “I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway. So it won’t be Golden State or Cleveland going.”
