UPDATE: Tuesday June 13 3:00 P.M.
The Golden State Warriors have confirmed that the team hasn’t made any decisions about attending the traditional White House ceremony, reports ESPN.
“Today is all about celebrating our championship,” the team said in a statement released Tuesday. “We have not received an invitation to the White House, but will make those decisions when and if necessary.”
The champagne-drenched Golden State Warriors have pulled off yet another NBA Finals win against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and it looks like the champs have made the sober decision to not visit 45.
Josh Brown of CNBC tipped off the public early this morning.
The Warriors organization hasn’t commented yet, but remember: Warriors point guard Shaun Livingston said months ago that if the squad won, he wouldn’t go the White House…
And head coach Steve Kerr went on record to call Trump’s policies un-American…
And Steph Curry pretty much called POTUS an ass…
And David West said that Trump’s approach is the total opposite of what he was told as a kid.
The Bay Area team did attend the White House ceremony to celebrate its 2015 Finals title back when Obama was still POTUS.
If the Warriors do in fact decide not to the visit Trump, the team won’t be the first. Super Bowl winning New England Patriots Tom Brady, LeGarrette Blount, Martellus Bennett and Danny Amendola deflated their relationship with the current administration by skipping out on a White House visit.
Hopefully the only visit Kevin Durant makes to the Washington D.C. area is to bring the Larry O’Brien Trophy back to his hometown.
