LeBron James: Winner of NBA finals won’t be going to the White House

President Donald Trump points to members of the media as he arrives on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington Friday

While we still think the National Football League is trash, players who stands up, or kneel, for their beliefs, gives us hope.

It apparently wasn't enough, though, for some of Pederson's players.

Defensive end Chris Long, another respected voice in the locker room, donated his entire $1 million 2017 salary to charities funding scholarships and promoting educational equality.

Instead of speaking, he held up a series of handwritten signs, as reported by The Hill.

But according to the Philadelphia-area reporters who attended the event, there were not numerous Eagles fans that the White House accused the team of abandoning in attendance at the White House event held for their benefit.

Trump, who has equated the protest with disrespect of flag and nation, said last September that any protesting "son of a bitch" should be fired and added recently "maybe you shouldn't be in the country".

"Eighty players said [they would] attend".

"I think what you're seeing is, I think the athletes are showing patriotism through their community service", Kerr told reporters in response to a question about the Lynx before Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

There are other examples, from large-scale projects to those small moments when a player makes a fan's day just by being nice.

Faced with the very real possibility of paltry attendance, President Trump deftly switched gears.

The overwhelming issue surrounding the Eagles' planned visit was that most of the team was not going to attend, and that was a major factor in Trump deciding to pull the invitation.

A "Celebration of America" replaced a visit by the Eagles. Jenkins stopped protesting during the national anthem after that partnership was forged.

He called the move "typical" of Trump. "We stand to honor our military and to honor our country, and to remember the fallen heroes who never made it back home". But it's good that guys are sticking to what they believe in and what they want to do. "And we proudly stand for our glorious nation under God".

Berman noted that no Eagles players kneeled during the anthem past year, but Conway asked to "unpack that separately".

"I don't think [he's] actually kneeling", joked Arroyo of one robust anthem protestor. And so as players, I think it was left up to each individual what they wanted to do; they were gonna have some options.
