After Winning NBA Championship, Did The Golden State Warriors Vote to Skip White House Visit?
The move to skip the ceremony would be a clear slap in the face to the Trump administration.
Within hours of capturing their third NBA crown, the team unanimously voted not to visit the White House, according to a report.
The decision would be in direct contrast with the team's 2015 win, after which they proudly posed alongside then-President Obama.
Following the report the team said in a statement that any decision not to visit the president would be premature, since they have not yet been invited to the White House.
"Today is all about celebrating our championship," they said. “We have not received an invitation to the White House, but will make those decisions when and if necessary."
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr as well as star player Steph Curry and teammate David West have all spoken out against Donald Trump since the election.
After hearing reports of a possible White House snub, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted, “The @warriors' leadership is inspiring. I'd be honored to welcome the team to the U.S. Capitol.”
The Warriors defeated the reigning champions Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the NBA Finals 129-120.
Kevin Durant was named MVP of the Finals and dedicated the award to his mother, who appeared alongside him on the court following the big win.
