Trump upsets a bunch of NBA players, too, withdraws invite to Warriors

Have you ever been invited to a friend’s birthday party but you weren’t able to go? Once they heard you couldn’t go, they would then say, “you weren’t invited anyway?”

President Donald Trump withdrew his invitation to the Golden State Warriors and guard Steph Curry to visit the White House after winning the 2017 NBA championship. Trump said Curry was “hesitating.”

Curry told reporters Friday he would vote against the Warriors visiting the White House and President Trump.

Curry received support from fellow NBA players including four-time MVP Lebron James, who denounced Trump’s taken-back invitation in his most retweeted post ever.

Golden State's statement:

Five-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant:

Golden State power forward and teammate Draymond Green:

Sixers forward James Michael McAdoo, who signed a two-way contract with the team in August:

Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal:

Two-time All-Star Baron Davis:

After Trump's comments about the NFL and NBA in the last 24 hours and North Carolina's men's basketball team not visiting the White House (because of a scheduling conflict), it is hard to believe any championship-winning teams will be making the trip to the nation’s capital anytime soon.

Except for the Patriots.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.

This little Eagles fan singing Fly Eagles Fly during bedtime will melt your heart

This little Eagles fan singing Fly Eagles Fly during bedtime will melt your heart

If the stress of the Eagles season is keeping you up at night, you’re not the only one. One little fella's parents caught him up wayyy past bedtime in the name of the Eagles.

Listen closely as Jameson Kane sings the Eagles fight song through the baby monitor on the video shared on social media by his parents, Britney and Jimmy, on Friday.

It will melt your heart.



If this doesn’t lift your spirits after a tough few weeks as an Eagles fan, then we don’t know what will.  

It turns out, Jameson’s parents might prefer to use the fight song as a lullaby instead of your classic Hush Little Baby. And we love them for it.

Through highs and lows, it looks like this little kiddo is being raised right.
