Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins Lets Signs Do His Talking On Racial Injustices
Jun 08 2018
After winning the championship last season, the Warriors made an organizational decision not to visit the White House.
Not a chance, LeBron James says. "I know regardless of who wins this series, no one wants an invite anyway, ' he said Tuesday, as quoted by ESPN's Mark Jones".
Rep. Ryan Costello, a Republican from Pennsylvania, had been looking forward to the White House meeting between President Donald Trump and the Philadelphia Eagles. "It won't be Cleveland or Golden State going".
No matter whose team wins the National Basketball Association championship, neither superstar will be at the White House anytime soon. The announcement came after the Eagles informed the White House that a majority of the team's players would not attend the event, a snub that reportedly infuriated the president.
The Warriors lead the NBA Finals 2-0 with Game 3 Wednesday night.
Taking the podium next, Curry said, "I think I agree with 'Bron, I'm pretty sure the way we handled things a year ago, we'll stay consistent with that". Basically, the Philadelphia Eagles cornerback did an entire interview silently- answering questions by holding up signs that illustrated how National Football League players are protesting police brutality and racial injustice, NOT disrespecting troops or the flag.
Trump held a patriotic rally on Tuesday instead, where he said in a speech that he thought it was time to "explain why young Americans stand for our national anthem". "So it's just the way it is". "I think if you layer on top of the fact that race relations are not good when it comes to talking about our president right now".
Kerr, like San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich, has been outspoken in his criticism of Trump, and found it particularly ironic that the Eagles have been actively been doing "good deeds in their communities".
"It will be nice when we can just get back to normal in three years", Kerr said.
