Trump Wants to (Possibly) Invite the Toronto Raptors to White House.
Following their historic NBA Championship win, the Raptors just may be getting an invite from Trump to visit the White House… not that they would care, lol.
During a Thursday news conference that followed a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Trump said that he would “think about” hosting the team.
“We thought about that, that’s an interesting question,” he stated. “They played phenomenal basketball — I watched a little bit of it , they were really terrific.”
Turning to Trudeau, he added, “Congratulations by the way, that was a great job by a great team. So we’ll think about that, if they’d like to do it, we’ll think about that.”
Whatever, bruh. 😂

Zion Williamson Is Going to the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Pelicans have selected Zion Williamson with the No. 1 pick. An emotional Zion was most grateful for his mother, during a post-selection interview.
“My mom sacrificed a lot for me,” he said. “I wouldn’t be here without my mom. She did everything for me. I just want to thank her.”
TMZ adds: “Z-Dub’s rookie contract could be worth around $45 million over 4 seasons … so the dude’s set for a while … but he’ll be making WAY more off the court with his shoe deal and other sponsorships.”
Congratulations to young Zion!
