NBA: Iman Shumpert Says He Won’t Go to Donald Trump’s White House if Cavs Win Title Again


Soon after Donald Trump won the presidential election, Jalen Rose and others said players from the NBA and NFL would decline going to the White House after winning a championship while he’s the commander in chief.  Well, Rose is right as we have the first player who announced he won’t attend.

The Cleveland Cavaliers met with President Barack Obama at the White House earlier this month to celebrate their win in the 2016 NBA Finals. LeBron James was asked if he would go back next season to meet with Donald Trump if the Cavs repeat as the NBA champions.

“I don’t know,” James said. “That’s something I would cross…we’ll have to cross that road, I guess. We’ll see. I would love to have to cross that road.”

If the Cavs win another title and LeBron does decide to go back to the White House, his teammate Iman Shumpert won’t be with him. During an interview with Complex, Shumpert revealed that he would not go back to the White House once President-Elect Trump is in office.

An honest Shumpert revealed, “I’m not going to the White House.”

Shumpert, who is a big sneaker collector, was also asked if he will continue to wear Yeezys after Kanye West said he would have voted for Trump.

“I understand people’s stance on Trump,” he said. “I can’t get caught up in the racial, sexist bulls*** he’s got going on. That’s his personal thing, ya dig? But I just don’t think he can make anything shake like that. He not finna start no civil war out here. I do think he’s crazy—straight up. I think he did that stuff to get people to think he’s willing to shake it up. But did I vote for him? No. The other stuff that comes with him, I can’t get with. But now that he’s here, I’m not finna drag my feet. I gotta work here, at least until the offseason, if I wanna go get a crib in the Islands.”
