Warriors point guard Curry, a two-time winner of the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award, said the team could “inspire some change” by refusing to visit the home of the president.
“I don’t want to go,” Curry said on Friday, adding that it would show the players “don’t stand for… the things that he’s said and the things that he hasn’t said in the right times”.
He added: “I don’t think us not going to the White House is going to miraculously make everything better, but this is my opportunity to voice that.”
Trump responded by tweeting that the invitation had been withdrawn.
James, who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers and has won three NBA championships and four NBA MVP awards, campaigned for Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton, Trump’s rival, during the presidential election campaign.
