Oakland triumphant as parade set to celebrate NBA's Warriors

Oakland triumphant as parade set to celebrate NBA's Warriors

The reigning two-time MVP reiterated Wednesday that he stands by his previous comments in response to the hypothetical question about whether he would visit the Trump White House if the Warriors were to win a championship.

"I'm sure as a team we're gonna have a conversation (about a potential visit)", he said.

CNBC sports personality Josh Brown reported on Twitter early this morning that the entire Golden State Warriors have unanimously agreed not to partake in the traditional White House visit, due to their opposition to President Trump: The two-time champions' distaste for Trump is no secret. "And I know he wants to be here and we want him here".

"We'll handle that accordingly and responsibly, and do the right thing for us individually and as a group". It sounds like, if Golden State does accept an invitation, it can expect Steph Curry to skip the chance to shake President Donald Trump's hand.

Let's be real, aside from it rudely hogging The Bachelorette's timeslot and leaving us episode-less this week, those little girls are the only reason we actually watched the National Basketball Association finals. "But I'm going to enjoy this". "That's not what's important, my take on that".

"Today is all about celebrating our championship", team reps said in a statement, according to Sports Illustrated. The 7-foot (2.13 m) small forward and 2017 Finals MVP has said that after his controversial decision leave the Oklahoma City Thunder and join the Warriors last offseason, he is not eager to move again.

That all spells trouble for the rest of the league, who saw the Warriors capture a title in 2015, win a record-setting 73 games the next regular season before Durant moved to the Bay Area and the team became a juggernaut.

It is a tradition in the United States that professional sports teams visit the White House as the Chicago Cubs did in January when they spent time with President Barack Obama after capturing their 2016 Major League Baseball title. "That doesn't mean I wouldn't want another championship", he added.
