Stephen Curry: 'I agree with LeBron' on visit to White House

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.

Curry is the odds-on favorite to win the 2018 NBA Finals MVP award after going 14-28 from three-point range in two Golden State victories. "Now we've got to come back and do the same thing", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said. There's a lot of people that believe he's not for the people or doing things that's right by the people.

By now, you've all seen the videos, still shots and memes of LeBron's frustration with JR Smith's Game 1 blunder, but today new footage has surfaced that shows what went down on the bench in between the end of the fourth quarter and overtime. Additionally, Curry explains how his Warriors intend on exploiting Cleveland's weaknesses for the rest of the NBA Finals.

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 U.S. sports crown. "Pretty sure the way we handled things past year, we'd stay consistent with that".

"I chose to speak out on me not wanting to go to the White House previous year". ESPN's Adam Schefter previously reported that "a large group of Eagles players had decided not to attend, including most - if not all - of the black players". Will the victor of the series - and let's be real, it looks like it'll be the Warriors - take the customary visit to the White House?

James also said that the WNBA Minnesota Lynx not even receiving an invitation to the White House was "laughable".

What Warriors and Cavaliers are saying ahead of historic rematch
Durant and Curry opened as +175 co-favorites at Westgate to win the 2017 NBA Finals MVP, with Durant taking home the honors. There's plenty more to talk about going in, but we narrowed it to five storylines to follow for the season's final series.

A win for Stephen Curry and Golden State would all but render the remainder of the series a formality, as no NBA team has ever crawled back from a 3-0 hole to win an NBA Finals series - or any NBA playoff series, as the Boston Globe pointed out.

James said people should not forget the championship season the Eagles had because of the situation with Trump.

"Klay definitely wants to play his whole career in Golden State and the Bay Area - there's no question about that", Mychal said.

James has been vocally critical of President Trump several times in the past.

The Warriors, in lieu of going to the White House, spent that day taking a group of children to the National Museum of African American History and Culture a few miles away.
