Golden State Warriors' Iguodala a game-time decision for Game 3

Iguodala's return would be another big boost for the Warriors, who lead the Cleveland Cavaliers 2-0 in this title series and now get the 2015 NBA Finals MVP back into their rotation.

"It's typical of him".

LeBron also asserted that it is 100% Trump's demeanour and actions that put the players off, stating that any championship success is not diminished by a lack of recognition from the White House. That invitation - not unlike the Eagles' - was pulled after a number of players vacillated on attending.

While James' Game 3 outfit was colorful, Warriors guard Stephen Curry took a simple approach, with a denim jacket, white T-shirt and slim jeans.

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". Some Warriors said they would not attend a White House ceremony past year, shortly after Golden State won the NBA Finals.

"Instead the decision was made to lie, and paint the picture that these players are anti-America, anti-flag and anti-military", the Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins wrote in a statement posted to social media Tuesday. The last National Basketball Association team to attend the White House visit was the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016, when Barack Obama was still president.


James supported Curry's decision to skip out on the White House ceremony and called Trump a "bum" in a tweet. "I think he's getting closer and I'm hopeful he can't play if not tomorrow (Game 3) then in Game 4".

"We've been very persistent and very resilient throughout this whole season, no matter what has been going on", James said.

It's somewhat fascinating to see that response, and to see an awareness of how these press conferences have turned into a much larger element of the NBA Finals than they've been historically (a subject Bryan Curtis explored recently at The Ringer).

Also says the Warriors don't expect Kevin Durant to go elsewhere this summer.

"Teams progress to playoffs and finals and deeper into a tournament, we get more exposure".

Lue wants more physical toughness and better communication on the defensive side, especially guarding Curry. "Like guys said before me, I'm sure whoever wins this series won't be going".
