The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers now are playing for the NBA's championship but Trump said on Friday the victor would not be coming to the White House.
Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is the most admirable man in the National Basketball Association right now. He said that there is more to the conversation than just disagreeing with Trump and his policies, including how some National Football League players are continuing to kneel for the anthem.
However, he said, he plans to ask kneeling athletes to recommend "friends of theirs or people that they know about" who they think should be pardoned.
