CLEVELAND – At practice on Tuesday, LeBron James addressed President Trump’s decision not to invite the Philadelphia Eagles for a White House visit, saying, “I’m not surprised.”
Trump warned NFL players on Tuesday about “escaping to locker rooms during the playing of the national anthem,” a reference to a new policy giving players the option to remain on the field during the anthem.
And about that viral clip that went around yesterday…
James says he is too focused on the Finals to spend time on social media, so after the timeout clip of the Cavs losing all hope on the bench at the end of Game 1 went viral, James seemed shocked Tuesday when reporters brought it up.
The uncut footage released days after the game showed James asking coach Ty Lue if they had any remaining timeouts. When he learns they still had one timeout, you can see the weight of the season come tumbling down on James.
“It went viral? Damn cameras,” James said Tuesday, laughing. “I’m not on social media… I finally got (Game 1) out of my head and now you’re bringing it up again?”
