LeBron James calls President Trump a 'bum' after uninviting Warriors to White House
President Donald Trump's tweet that uninvited the NBA champion Warriors to the White House and mentioned Stephen Curry caught the attention of another of the league's biggest stars.
Following Trump's early Saturday tweet — in which he said, in part, "Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!" — many in the sports world reacted, but perhaps the most visible voice was from LeBron James who called Trump a "bum" in a Twitter response.
U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!

Of course, James wasn't the only NBA player to have a reaction. And, to be clear, they apparently understand why Curry said he wouldn't visit the White House.
