"Let's not let someone uninviting you to their house take away from that moment, because I think the championship.is way bigger than being invited to the White House, especially with him in there, in my opinion", said James of this year's NBA Final.
They have won eight in a row.
Now that the series is headed to Cleveland for Games 3 and 4, hopefully the whistle will begin to help the Cavs more than hurt them.
ABC will exclusively broadcast the 2018 NBA Finals best-of-seven series and will also be available via its live streaming platforms online.
Or are these Cavaliers defeated already?
After Months Of Talks, Italy Has A New Coalition Government
President Mattarella reappointed Mr Conte as Prime Minister-designate yesterday to lead the government. Earlier this week, Sergio Mattarella invited former economist Carlo Cottarelli to form a government.
Coming off a personal-best 51 points in a Game 1 loss, James led the Cavaliers with 29 points in Game 2 on Sunday, but he went more than 12 consecutive minutes in the first half without a field goal, during which Golden State took the lead for good. But he trusted them, and said with a confidence only he could have, "That's why we're going to another Finals, because my teammates played a hell of a game". The Cavs climbed out of a 3-1 deficit to win the 2016 NBA Championship over the Warriors. Such lapses probably won't happen on their home court.
"We feed off our crowd. We get it at this point". We're used to the dynamic of being ahead in a series and then having everything shift when you go on the road. "He's a scorer. You know, he's an assassin and that was one of those assassin plays right there".
Game 3 is scheduled for Wednesday in Cleveland.
If the Warriors don't win Friday, they will wrap things up back at Oracle Arena on Monday. Which may be good, but LeBron James doesn't want his team to lean on that. We should still be uncomfortable.
"The eye has looked a lot better", James said. "They've proven they can win on someone else's floor and do it in any fashion, in any way".

But it was Curry's circus layup with 2:58 remaining, followed by a 3-pointer on the ensuing possession, that gave Golden State the lead back for good - and set the stage for Durant to hit a devastating deep 3 that all but ended Cleveland's season for the second year in a row.
Game 2 of the NBA Finals did not offer has many obvious breakdowns as the first game. Cleveland fell 110-102.
In 13 games this postseason, the 34-year-old veteran is averaging 7.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.4 steals per game. "It's been a tough series for Kyle", Love said. "They're going to make runs". That's such a huge thing for us because you kind of speak things into existence.
"So I think it will be very important for us to be locked in from the jump on the defensive side of the ball and not giving those guys easy shots". And facing great, really great teams. "So just being locked in on the defensive side of the ball from the jump ball, it will pay dividends for us going into Cleveland".
No one knows what LeBron's future holds, and how this Finals pans out will likely play a huge role in his decision.
