A Wicked White House

An angered President Donald Trump uninvited NBA star Stephen Curry to the White House.

   President Donald Trump and Stephen Curry may not agree on certain things going on in sports right now, but what they can agree on is that the 2017 NBA champion will not be attending the White House. Curry, who had spoken of not going to the White house, has been uninvited by U.S. President Donald Trump.

  President Donald Trump had this to say to the defending NBA champ, “ Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team. Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!” Well, apparently this is not as big of an honor to the Warriors as after President Trump’s comments have decided they are not welcome either and will not be going to the White House.

   As expected, shock and confusion flowed through the league and quickly after these comments had been stated, players and even the NBA commissioner shared his View points. Cleveland Cavalier Lebron James had a message on twitter  for the President after he uninvited Curry, “U bum [Stephen Curry] already said he ain’t going! So therefore ain’t no invite. Going to the White House was a great honor until you showed up!” Tell us how you feel, Lebron! The NBA commissioner stated, “I was in favor of the team visiting the White House and thought it was a rare opportunity for these players to share their views directly with the President.” Mixed feelings from around the league, but who was right and who was wrong?

  Sure Curry may have been hesitant to go with the team to the White House, but he should not be uninvited for it. As a matter of fact, reversing what President Donald Trump said, going to the White House as a championship team shouldn’t be viewed as a high honor. It is the winning teams that make the visit such an honor.

  President Donald Trump was wrong in uninviting Curry, and as a result, lost the whole Warriors team attendance. With Trump’s comments towards the Warriors and now the NFL, one can imagine the feelings of winning teams being invited to the White House. Curry was correct in speaking out on how he feels about President Trump and getting his message across the league, hopefully encouraging other sports stars to do the same.
