Curry, Durant committed to keeping Golden State on top

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. "We have not received an invitation to the White House, but will make those decisions when and if necessary".

Coach Steve Kerr told KTVU-TV he was proud that the team came back from the heartbreak of losing last year's championship to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

NBA Finals champions, the Golden State Warriors, said earlier this week in a statement that no decision had been made on if they would visit President Donald Trump at the White House - if they were even invited to the White House - as is tradition of championship-winning teams. "But obviously as a team we're going to have a conversation. I might call him and say, 'If they ask, just say our schedules conflicted.' And then if y'all write something, we'll say, 'Fake News, '" Iguodala said. Though he also said "hell nah" when asked about his taking part in the visit. I mean, it may be different. "You don't want anybody to have to sacrifice in that sense, you don't want to force anybody to take that approach but at the end of the day we know what's best for us as a group going forward".

The down-on-its-luck city that always seems to take a back seat to San Francisco gets to celebrate Thursday in a parade and rally for the beloved hometown team and its second National Basketball Association title in three years.

Fired up teammate David West said snubbing a White House visit is something he would consider. "I think it's just the ignorance, the convenient ignorance".

Green interacted with the crowd on numerous occasions as the parade meandered through the streets of Oakland, where excited fans serenaded the players. I feel like there are actions that occur, that continue the dividing of everyone.

And in February, Curry took umbrage with the chief executive of one of his sponsors, who claimed Trump was a "real asset" to the country.

The Warriors attended the White House ceremony in their honour when they won the championship in 2015 while former President Barack Obama was in office.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr vocalized his disapproval of Donald Trump had won.

Curry responded to that asset quote, "I agree with that description if you remove the 'et'".
