National Basketball Association champions Golden State Warriors unlikely to visit White House

Kevin Durant was named MVP of the Finals and dedicated the award to his mother, who appeared alongside him on the court following the big win.

James, who has the most triple-doubles in NBA Finals at eight, said the Cavaliers struggled to stay healthy throughout the season, which was a setback come playoffs.

"I agree with that description, if you remove the 'et, '" Curry said, in response to Plank calling President Trump an "asset".

The No. 3 and No. 5 most "Liked" photos also pictured Neymar, with the former also including New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. and British Formula One racing driver Lewis Hamilton while the latter was a still shot with the foot taller Durant.

Still, with the way James has been known to drag out announcements in free agency, it seems unlikely he'll say anything definitive about it until his contract officially is up.

Durant's mother, Wanda, spoke out on First Take during these Finals to criticize Smith for saying her son's move was weak. Among the top moments include the finals seconds of the Warriors winning the title, Durant's clutch pull-up three-pointer with 45 seconds left in Game 3 that gave the Warriors a 118-113 win and a then-commanding 3-0 lead in the series.

The Warriors' statement comes less than 24 hours after Clemson visited the White House to honor a national championship win against Alabama in January, in which President Trump said the Tigers "won a championship game for the ages".

None of that was an issue for the Warriors as Durant has been called an unselfish player whose only desire was to do whatever is in the best interests of his team.

The Cavs lost Game 5 of the NBA Finals to the Warriors Monday night, 129-120.

The reports did not specifically cite President Trump as a reason, but Warriors coach Steve Kerr and star Stephen Curry have been particularly critical of Trump since the election.
