Per reports, less than 24 hours after becoming the 2017 NBA Finals champions, the Warriors have decided to decline the White House visit.
With President Trump in office, there have been many conversations about if athletes should take political stands by choosing to refuse traditional championship White House visits. Many of the Patriot players skipped out on their visit with Trump after winning the Super Bowl.
While no one from the Warriors organization or the White House has released a statement about the report, reporter Shaun King and CNBC analyst Josh Brown have both shared the information.
It should be noted that the Warriors did attend the White House ceremony when Obama held office in 2015 after their Finals win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Not only did he win his first NBA Finals, but Kevin Durant was named the MVP on Monday (June 12) night.
The Warriors baller averaged 35.2 points per game, and was an integral part of Golden State walking away with the championship this year.
