Will Visit Canadian Prime Minister
… Undecided on Trump

Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse says he’s DEFINITELY looking forward to celebrating their NBA championship with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau … but Donald Trump? That’s TBD.
It’s uncharted territory for Canada’s NBA team, considering this is their first title in franchise history … so, many have been wondering if the Dinos would get an invite to party at the White House.
Nurse addressed the possibility with Prime Time Sports on SportsNet 590 … saying the team hasn’t gotten a call from Trump’s camp yet … and even if they DO get an invite, he’s unsure how they’ll RSVP.
But, as for meeting the top guy in Canada? Nurse says plans are already in the works …
“Definitely the Trudeau meeting, because they have been asking me about scheduling it,” Nurse said. “I’ve heard nothing from the White House. We’re Canada’s team anyway, right?”
Politics aside, Nurse says he truly doesn’t know if there will be a trip to 1600 Penn, “I think we’re here. Let’s go see Trudeau up in Ottawa … we’re Canada’s team.”
Remember, the Golden State Warriors — who won the NBA title the past two years before the Raptors — famously boycotted Trump’s White House … opting to visit with President Obama instead.
