Donald Trump may have a weird friendship with the NFL's biggest star, but the NBA isn't nearly as easy to win over.

Specifically, LeBron James and Stephen Curry, who both slammed the President's travel ban and praised those who were speaking out about it!

The Cleveland Cavaliers all-star slammed Trump's executive order while accepting the NAACP's Jackie Robinson Award on February 1, noting that "diversity is what makes this country so great."

Not only did James win the NBA championship with his Cleveland Cavaliers, but the athlete also donated $2.5 million to the Muhammad Ali exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. On top of that, the ball player also announced he'll be an executive producer on an HBO documentary about Ali, and has spoken out about gun violence on multiple occasions.

Though we LOVED last year's pick of Serena Williams, the Cavs star's selection is pretty special too because it's the second time he's been honored with the award. Tiger Woods is the only other person to ever have won the award twice!

Rapper Jay Z presented the All Star athlete with the award as LeBron began his speech saying:

Every award show has its fair share of snubs, and that includes the recently deceased stars who didn't make it into the "In Memoriam" segment.

At the 2016 Emmys, Christina Grimmie's fans noticed the late singer was not featured in the emotional tribute, which honored stars from the television screen to the worlds of sports and music.

Fans flocked to Twitter to make their disappointment known in regard to The Voice star not being mentioned among the legendary stars who passed away this year, including Gene Wilder, Garry Marshall, Muhammad Ali, Garry Shandling, Doris Roberts, and more.

Because The Voice earned a trophy for Best Reality Competition Show, fans were especially upset over Grimmie's absence — but this isn't the first time the 22-year-old has been left out of an award show since her tragic slaying this June.

In August, fans were upset that the singer wasn't mentioned at this year's Teen Choice Awards, and even started a petition for Fox to formally apologize to her family for "disrespecting" the late star.

Do YOU think Grimmie's fans have a right to be upset over her absence at the Emmys In Memoriam segment?
