James' remark came in response to President Donald Trump's decision to disinvite the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles from a celebration of their title at the White House. 'It's typical of him, ' James said of Trump.
"I always believe the role players play much better at home than they do on the road", James told reporters in Cleveland on Tuesday.
But new footage of the Cavaliers bench before the start of overtime has shown James turning incredulous after finding out his team still had a timeout remaining. "It's way bigger than getting invited to the White House, especially with him in there".
But the Cavaliers, facing Golden State in the finals for the fourth year in a row, are only 4-4 against the Warriors at home in all finals.More news: Iran informs United Nations of increase in nuclear enrichment capacity

Stephen Curry said on September 22 during the Warriors' media day that hopefully the champions could "inspire change" by not going to the White House to celebrate their title. "Like guys said before me, I'm sure whoever wins this series won't be going". "When somebody says they don't want to come to the White House, he disinvites them".
Trump and his administration have been vocal opponents of several players in the NFL for their decision to use the national anthem as an opportunity to speak out against perceived inequality for minorities and police brutality, often electing to sit or kneel for the duration of "The Star Spangled Banner". "I'm hopeful he can play, if not tomorrow then in game four". "But I think I agree with LeBron". And if you're going to do that, you might as well look for a way to bet on them to win every National Basketball Association title for the next five or six years.
Chances are Durant is going to be back with the Warriors next season, but Andrew Sharp has some interesting points about why he should maybe think about leaving. You've got to try to pick your team-mate up there. Stephen Curry drained nine treys on his way to 33 points with seven rebounds and eight assists, Kevin Durant bounced back from a rough shooting night in Game 1 to finish with 26 points and seven assists on 10 of 14 shooting while Draymond Green chipped in with five points, eight rebounds and seven assists.
Kerr closed with a defense of athlete activism, "You have to understand that what players have protested is not the military". After his virtuosic 51-8-8 performance in Game 1, LeBron looked more human in Game 2, creating for his teammates with a game-high 13 assists while picking his spots more tentatively on offence.
Kerr also lauded the Eagles for being what he called "fantastic citizens in their own community".
