Both spoke a day after Trump revoked an invitation to the National Football League champion Philadelphia Eagles to visit the White House amid reports fewer than 10 players would take part in the traditional trip to celebrate a major USA sports crown.
"They play well at home, we understand that", Lue said of Golden State.
"Let's not let someone inviting you from their house take away from their championship", James told reporters.
The Cavaliers stole Game 7 of that series on the road to advance to the finals, where they are battling the defending champion Warriors for the fourth consecutive year.
In 2017, the Warriors won the NBA Championship and drew Trump's fury after Curry and other Warriors players said that they would not make the trip to the White House.
The Warriors did win the title together, but Sharp thinks that it is always going to be Stephen Curry's team, and people will always consider Durant just a side piece to him. Will the victor of the series - and let's be real, it looks like it'll be the Warriors - take the customary visit to the White House? Trump blasted NFL protests in which players kneeled during the playing of the national anthem, even though none of the Eagles kneeled during the anthem last season. "I'm hopeful he can play, if not tomorrow then in game four".
"I don't really think about being up 2-0 because the series could turn so fast", Warriors star Kevin Durant said.
"Going to the White House was a great honor until you showed up!" The Warriors felt it was a risky play. Klay Thompson suffered a high ankle sprain in the opening minutes of Game 1, and Andre Iguodala hasn't played against the Cleveland Cavaliers because of a bone bruise in his left knee.
It would also behoove the Cavs to shoot better from 3-point range, where they've connected on just 19 of 64 attempts against the Warriors in two games. It's incredible that they've each made it back this many times without a hiccup, and it's hard to imagine we could see a fifth-straight Finals showdown.
LeBron James considers his familiar NBA Finals opponent among the best teams ever.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr, an outspoken critic of the U.S. president, says that Trump's decision to rescind invitations for anyone who disagrees with his politics is an unfortunate side effect of his presidency. Malcolm Jenkins, Chris Long - these guys are studs.
Kerr also lauded the Eagles for being what he called "fantastic citizens in their own community".
