LeBron James may not have won the NBA title with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2017, but he does have an honor that no other athlete in professional basketball can claim.
This week, Twitter released its list of most popular tweets from 2017 and LeBron’s message to Donald Trump topped the list.
James sent his message to Trump after the president attacked Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry for turning down an invitation to the White House.
Trump attempted to revoke the invitation that Curry didn’t even want, which led to James firing off his shot.
U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!

Other athletes raising money for Houston following the devastating floods also made the list, along with Colin Kaepernick thanking Eminem for a shoutout during his freestyle rap at the BET Awards.
