The Denver Nuggets will not follow the traditional invitation to the White House. The team, led by superstar Nikola Jokic, has specified a particular reason for their refusal.

This year, the current NBA champions will not visit the White House. The Denver Nuggets have decided to skip the visit to the President of the United States, which has become a tradition.

According to Sport1, the reason is the NBA’s extremely tight schedule.

The team, featuring star player Nikola Jokic, must be back on the court just one day after the originally planned reception in Washington.

The game on March 20th is also a major highlight: The Nuggets will then face off against the Minnesota Timberwolves. This match could also decide the leadership in the Western Conference.

Nuggets’ Refusal is Not Politically Motivated

Currently, the Nuggets are in second place, with Minnesota right behind in third. The Oklahoma City Thunder are presently leading the pack.

The Nuggets also assured their fans that the decision to decline the invitation was purely for sporting reasons.

The team does not want to be drawn into a political controversy.
