Off the court, however, has been a different story.
In what will surely spark another "shut up and dribble" explosion of ignorance, LeBron James told a group of reporters this morning that regardless of who wins the NBA Finals, "no one wants an invite" to visit Donald Trump at the White House. "But it's typical of him", James said.
On the eve of Game 3 of the Warriors-Cavaliers series, politics dominated the conversation. "But I think I agree with Bron". "The way we handled things a year ago, we'd stay consistent with that".
Warriors coach Steve Kerr added to James' comments.
Curry said the team has been on the same page after his comments a year ago and Trump's subsequent revoking of the Warriors' invitation.
No Philadelphia Eagles Players Knelt During The Anthem In 2017 Season
When pressed again and again at Wednesday's press event, Pederson declined to discuss the matter in any detail. The star defensive back raised his fist during the national anthem last season to protest social injustice.
Both James and Curry backed Hillary Clinton for the presidency when she ran against Trump in 2016. This isn't the first time LeBron has had words with 45.
"Sports are really not as separate from the rest of the world as we think they are", said Coakley, who said he disapproved of Trump's attacks on the National Football League and decision to cancel Tuesday's event with the Philadelphia Eagles.
"And so for us, it's just continuing to do the work, continuing to share our message to those who actually even want to hear it, to stay on topic and not really get into arguments about what's right, what's wrong - 'cause those are all excuses for people to not listen to you".
"I think as long as he's in office, then the communication and things like that are going to continue to happen", the athlete said of Trump. For critics, the decision was the latest step in the president's ongoing effort to politicize the country's most popular sport by stoking a divisive debate about race and patriotism. So it's just the way it is. We're all looking forward to the day when we can go back to just having a celebration and celebrate Americans for their achievement.
Kerr admitted that he was "blown away by the irony of the Eagles being disinvited". They've done so much good. Never have I witnessed a more fan-friendly team. Malcolm Jenkins, who plays safety for the Eagles, made his feelings quite clear on the matter on Wednesday - though technically he remained silent.
