The head coach of the Toronto Raptors, Nick Nurse, snubbed the White House after being asked whether he would accept an invitation to visit after his team won the NBA championship. As Fox News reports:
Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse said Wednesday the team has been invited to Canada’s parliament after winning their first and the country’s first NBA championship.
President Trump has yet to congratulate the Raptors on winning the title, who defeated the Golden State Warriors last week in Game 6.
Nurse was asked during an appearance on the 590 The Fan’s Prime Time Sports if he would go to the White House if he was invited, according to City News.
“You know, we’re here. Let’s go see Trudeau up in Ottawa. We’re Canada’s team,” Nurse said.
Choosing to visit Canada over the White House after such a historic championship victory surely has to be quite the downgrade.
