"Pretty sure the way we handled things a year ago, kinda staying consistent with that".

By saying "guys said before me", Durant referenced comments made by Cavs forward LeBron James, who told reporters that no matter who won the Finals, no one would want to go to the White House.

President Trump rescinded the invitation in a tweet: "Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team".

The Golden State Warriors took a 2-0 series lead and defended home court with a dominant 122-103 win in Game 2. The series head to Cleveland for Game 3, which is set to tip off on Wednesday night.

This trade would only work if the Cavaliers knew LeBron James was coming back, as it would add a proven veteran and a young big man to a team in need of some changes.

Here's Kevin Love on that idea: "I mean, I don't know what he had at that point, but he ended the game with 51-8-8, so he did a lot". Before answering the next unrelated question, James went back and tried to prevent the narrative from turning into he doesn't believe the Cavaliers can come back. "I agree with 'Bron".

It has been a long-standing tradition for championship teams to visit the White House, but there has been some controversy since President Donald Trump took the office. If they don't, the noise regarding James leaving Cleveland for a new team will likely only grow louder.

"You look at it, they've got four Hall of Famers on their team in Klay, Dray, Steph and KD". Iggy is a 13-year veteran, an All-Star, a two-time NBA champion and former NBA Finals MVP.

James said he was just going over what transpired in those closing seconds: George Hill missing a free throw, Smith "dribbling the ball out", and Draymond Green committing an uncalled lane violation. Numerous people responded to Trump, including Eagles players, noting among other things that few players were going to attend, anyway, and that no Eagles player kneeled during the playing of the national anthem last season. I don't think there's anything Miami can do, but obviously because he was there and brought them two championships.

It's quite understandable that he's upset about the Cavaliers' 2-0 deficit, but it's also interesting that he's still confident heading into the rest of the series.
