Will the Golden State Warriors Skip White House Visit?

After the Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 in Oakland, many are wondering: Will the Warriors celebrate their 2017 NBA Finals victory at the White House?

It’s customary for championship-winning teams to go to the White House at the invitation of the president, but many believe the team will skip the visit.

On Wednesday, Warriors point guard Stephen Curry said he’s not exactly keen on visiting the White House: “Somebody asked me about it a couple of months ago, like a hypothetical, if the championship were to happen would I do it, and I think I answered ‘I wouldn’t go.’ I still feel like that today. But, obviously as a team, we’re going to have a conversation.”

The Warriors released a statement Tuesday saying the team hadn’t yet reached a decision, but it’s no secret how Warriors Coach Steve Kerr feels about the sitting president. Kerr has called Donald Trump “ill-suited” and a “blowhard.”

And Curry responded to UnderArmour CEO Kevin Plank calling Trump a “real asset” to the country with the quip, “I agree with that description, if you remove the ‘et’.”

It’s the second championship for the Warriors in three years. After their 2015 win, the California team visited President Obama at the White House.
