LeBron James Blasts "Bum" Donald Trump Over Steph Curry Comment

Share

After much backlash, superstar LeBron James took to his Twitter account on September 23 to defend his professional rival.

That said, there are likely many other players in the league that hold the same stance as Beal, James, and Curry that have no desire in dealing with anything that involves president Trump.

"My views haven't changed at all". They know it's our decision and that, for me, really, it's the players' decision.

"Poor tocard. Steph Curry (the leader star of the Warriors) had already said that he didn't want to come. That's my nucleus of my belief".

"Just like our country, every opinion counts and matters. If it was just me, it would be a pretty short conversation", Curry told reporters during Golden State's media day.

"We don't stand for basically what our president has - the things that he said and the things that he hasn't said in the right terms - that we won't stand for it", Curry said Friday. Curry is not the only Warriors player who has said they do not want to go - fellow star Kevin Durant said in August that he would not participate in any visit because he does not "respect who's in office right now".

There are now 6,000 Taco Bell restaurants nationwide, but expanding the urban footprint, in particular, makes sense. The chain aims to make its presence known in urban areas, where most of the new stores are slated to open.

"We haven't had a chance to be together". "A president whose name alone causes division and wrath, whose words lead to strife and hatred, cannot make the Us a better country".

Of course, that was before the president rescinded his invitation. Trump tweeted Saturday morning. And Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, an active Twitter user, responded Saturday morning: "The behavior of the President is unacceptable and needs to be addressed".

It's worth noting - mainly because Trump tends to keep score of such things - that as of 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Trump's tweet had 96,000 likes and James' tweet had 295,000 likes.

Trump started by announcing that Curry, the immensely popular two-time MVP for the Golden State Warriors, would not be welcome at the White House for the commemorative visit traditionally made by championship teams.

Multiple reports on Friday indicated that the National Basketball Association was in conversation with the White House about the Warriors' visit and the team had planned to meet on Saturday.
