Warriors say no decision has been made on White House visit

Damon Campbell | 18 June, 2017, 02:02

"We just won a championship", Durant said Wednesday.

Based on at least one report, from CNBC, the Warriors might skip the traditional trip to the White House to celebrate Monday night's NBA Finals-clinching victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Warriors won 129-120 to.

But it turns out Durant did have something to say about the Grammy-winning superstar, who is an unabashed fan of LeBron James and during Game 1 of the NBA Finals yelled "brick" when Durant was at the free throw line. For Stephen Curry and his family, they had another way of celebrating it. And he looks forward to the nice payday. "I still feel like that today", he said.

"It would mean everything". Let's take a vote on if we want to go to the White House. It's about us supporting this championship. It is a business.

"All the tactics that he used to get elected are the very things that someone like me, who works with youth on a consistent basis, are the things that we try to talk our young folks out of being", West said. We haven't even talked [about] it. Critics have called the Warriors a super team with the addition of Kevin Durant past year. "I'd be honored to welcome the team to the U.S. Capitol". It's easier said than done, obviously.

The group that recruited Durant in the Hamptons that day last summer has the same philosophy about winning more championships.

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green appears to be taking some shots at the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Kerr said he was proud that the team "came back from the heartbreak of previous year". "Just with everything that's going on right now, I just don't agree with a lot of stuff that's happening".

"We all know (that it is getting worse)", he said. We'll see what happens. "I can guarantee that wasn't on anybody's mind as we were enjoying it". Those people include President Obama and his former high school girlfriend.

However, controversial policies and statements by President Donald Trump have created uncertainty about the future of White House title celebrations under this administration in some leagues, including in the predominantly African American NBA.

"You don't see some of the qualities you talk about, the resilience, the ability to communicate, the compassion", Kerr said when asked if an National Basketball Association coach could succeed with a Trump-like approach.

Guard Shaun Livingston declared in February he "definitely wouldn't go" to the White House if the team were to win the championship.

James teamed up with All Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on the Miami Heat to win his first championship in 2012.
