Whoa! Lebron James just set Twitter a blaze after firing off a round of full blown shade at Donald Trump in defense of fellow NBA star Stephen Curry.
The drama began when Steph Curry dished on the possibly skipping out on an appearance at the White House after winning this year’s NBA championship with the Golden State Warriors.
Easily the most forceful answer at Warriors Media Day on the White House decision has come from Steph Curry pic.twitter.com/01av461eCZ

In typical Trump fashion, he took to Twitter rescinding Curry’s invitation.
Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!

No stranger to speaking out against Trump and his questionable policies, James quickly hopped on Twitter in response to the president’s latest social media attack.
U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!

Twitter users quickly erupted in support of the Cleveland Cavaliers star.

Stephen Curry isn’t alone. GSW players Kevin Durant and David West have both declined this year’s trip to the White House.
