NBA Finals Game 2 memes target the refs, and JR Smith, too

LeBron James tries to quickly explain the end-of-regulation situation to J.R. Smith

'I'm not surprised. I know no matter who wins this series no one wants the invite, anyways.

"So I asked our coaching staff if we had a timeout", James said. "We've been here the last three years for Game 3".

"James, whose Cleveland Cavaliers are trailing the Golden State Warriors 2-0 in the NBA Finals, said neither team would be interested in attending if they win a championship this year - or as long as Mr. Trump is in office", reported CBS.

Steph Curry punched his name for consideration for Finals MVP after a 33-point, 8-assist, 7-rebound explosion, and a new NBA Finals record of 9 three-pointers.

The Warriors, who lead Cleveland 2-0 in the best-of-seven series entering game three Wednesday, would likely follow the lead of what they did a year ago when they went to Washington and spent the day with children instead of what would have been a White House trip.

Just hours before the Cleveland Cavaliers host the Golden State Warriors in Game 3, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith said on "First Take" that James would at least have a conversation with the defending champions this offseason. Since beating Golden State in the 2016 NBA Finals, the Cavs have lost six of seven Finals games against the Warriors.

"They're a unsafe ballclub no matter what", James said.

As close as things were in Games 1 and 2, there's no need or no reason to look at the series as being over.

When told about James' comment, Curry agreed with his opponent's sentiment.

The victor of the NBA Finals, Super Bowl and other league championships conventionally receive invitations to the White House to meet the president. "I'm hopeful he can play, if not tomorrow then in game four". We know how Cleveland plays here, with a lot of energy and force.

The Warriors are trying to join Bill Russell's Celtics, the Bulls led by Michael Jordan and the Lakers" trio of title runs fueled by George Mikan in the 1950s, Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in the "80s, and Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant almost 20 years ago as the only franchises in National Basketball Association history to capture three championships in four years.

During the 2017-2018 season, no Eagles player on the regular season roster declined to stand for the anthem.

LeBron on @realDonaldTrump uninviting the #Eagles after only 2-3 players wanted to see him and that everyone else passed on going to the White House because of him.

With the game tied between the Cavaliers and the Warriors and just under five seconds left on the clock, the Cavs' George Hill missed a free throw to win the game.
