Perkins, who was on the bench for Game 2 of the Finals, got tangled up with Golden State’s Stephen Curry after the Warriors star fell out of bounds on a 3-point attempt during the contest in Oakland.

The Eagles, much like the Warriors, were unlikely to visit the White House, as customary — but Donald Trump decided to rescind the invitation after only a handful of individuals (“two to three players, the owner, and the mascot“) had RSVP’d to the invite.
