Contrary to early reports, the Golden State Warriors have not made a decision on visiting the White House after winning the 2017 NBA championship.
Early on Tuesday, word began spreading that the Warriors had “unanimously” decided not to visit the Donald Trump White House.
The Warriors also responded to Business Insider’s request from comment, saying, “Today is all about celebrating our championship. We have not received an invitation to the White House, but will make those decisions when and if necessary.”
It’s unclear whether the Warriors would decide to skip an invitation to the White House, but there are signs to suggest they may.
Head coach Steve Kerr has been a vocal critic of US President Donald Trump since the election, slamming his proposed travel ban. Stephen Curry also said of Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank’s assertion that Trump would be an “asset” to the country, saying, “I agree with that description, if you remove the ‘et.”
Additionally, according to Letourneau, backup guard Shaun Livingston said he “definitely” wouldn’t go to the White House, while reserve big man David West also criticised Trump’s election and called it “unnerving.”
