With Game 3 of the NBA Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors set for Wednesday, LeBron James is still dribbling, and he's not "shutting up" about matters concerning the USA presidency.
Trump set off a firestorm Monday when he announced there would be no customary White House visit for the Super Bowl champions, alluding to NFL players kneeling for the national anthem and the ensuing controversy last season. 'It's typical of him, ' James said of Trump.

"I know regardless of who wins this series, no one wants an invite anyway", James told reporters Tuesday.
"I hope to be in that situation and win two more games where we win a championship, and obviously know what comes with that", he said.
James and the Cavaliers are now down 0-2 in their best-of-seven series against the Golden State Warriors.
"Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team", the president tweeted in September. "There's men of faith in this locker room, there's men who serve their communities, men who have a lot to give back to people with a lot less, and they don't have to do that at all. This is not good for America", Brewer said to FOX Business' Maria Bartiromo on "Mornings with Maria".
"It's not surprising hearing the news today with the Eagles. Pretty sure the way we handled things past year, kinda stay consistent with that".
The Warriors lead the NBA Finals 2-0 with Game 3 Wednesday night.

Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins says NFL players who have been speaking out politically are fighting for racial and social equality, not disparaging the national anthem. "They're just trying to do good deeds".
