Hours after winning the National Basketball Association championship, the Golden State Warriors answered the question about whether, after criticism of President Donald Trump by their coach and one of their star players, they will visit the White House.
Steve Kerr previous year said the Warriors wouldn’t accept an invitation from the White House.
Look, would it be surprising if the Golden State Warriors actually visited the White House as a team?
The Warriors won their second title in three years, but unlike the 2015 championship squad, this year’s team won’t be headed to Washington D.C., other than to face the Wizards next season. (Or even a new wave sparkler from the Golden State!) And throw in a Warriors Champions locker room towel for $17.99 and you can have a similar experience for a fraction of the price. The Golden State Warriors have not released an official statement on the issue, nor have any players, as of this writing, confirmed that they will be skipping a visit the White House.
After the reports surfaced, House Minority Leader invited the Warriors to the U.S. Capitol.
Curry responded to that asset quote, “I agree with that description if you remove the ‘et’”.
Kerr, who has visited the White House both as a championship player and coach, has also criticized Trump and his qualifications to be president.
The tradition of sports teams visiting the White House dates back to the 1800s.
On Monday, the Trump hosted the 2016 NCAA football champion Clemson Tigers for a title celebration at the White House.
Considering Steve Kerr’s comments on Donald Trump in the past, this comes as no surprise. (Sure, the first thing they did after Kevin Durant failed at crushing beers was to talk about the White House immediately-that’s sarcasm font).
