NBA star Stephen Curry was dis-invited from the White House on Saturday by President Trump.
Curry, a Golden State Warriors guard and two-time NBA MVP, said Friday he would vote against the team visiting Trump’s White House to celebrate the team’s 2017 championship.
That was enough for Trump to decide against inviting him.
Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!

Not going to the White House would send a message, Curry told reporters, “that we don’t stand for basically what our president has — the things that he’s said and the things that he hasn’t said at the right times — that we won’t stand for it.”
LeBron took a shot at Trump and backed the Warriors guard in the process:
U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain’t going! So therefore ain’t no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!

Chris Paul also makes another good point.
With everything that’s going on in our country, why are YOU focused on who’s kneeling and visiting the White House??? #StayInYoLane

Trump is probably a little bit jealous of Obama right about now.
To add to the insult even Kim Jong Un have an NBA bestie.
