NBPA President Says Curry Should Consider The Withdrawn White House Invite a ‘Badge of Honor’
If you’re one of those people who don’t like your politics mixed with sports, you should probably avoid social media for the next week or so.
On Friday, President Donald Trump called out NFL players who protested the national anthem and stated owners should remove them from the field and fire them immediately.
He followed that up by waking up early on Saturday and tweeting out a response to Stephen Curry and withdrawing his White House invite to the Warriors after they captured the NBA Championship back in June.
Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!

NBPA President Michele Roberts has zero issue with Donald Trump’s stance. She also took to Twitter to inform the Golden State Warriors star that he should wear this withdrawal invitation to the White House as a badge of honor.
Immediately after winning their second title in three years, multiple Golden State players had already made it clear that a White House visit was not on their agenda.
