Golden State Warriors turn down traditional champion meeting with U.S. president

The Warriors beat LeBron James and the Cavaliers in five games in the Finals.

That is because the Warriors boast an intimidating starting lineup featuring four All-Stars in their 20s who are likely to be with the team for years to come. One pregnant fan even painted the Warriors' logo on her stomach.

The Warriors defeated the Cavaliers 129-120 Monday to win their second National Basketball Association championship in three seasons. The Cleveland Cavaliers met with President Barack Obama in November 2016, two days after the 2016 presidential elections.

The reigning two-time MVP reiterated Wednesday that he stands by his previous comments in response to the hypothetical question about whether he would visit the Trump White House if the Warriors were to win a championship.

"Trump couldn't be more ill-suited to be president, because he's a blowhard", Kerr told reporters in May. Going through this year was so much fun.

Warriors players on buses passed Cahambing and his family twirling T-shirts over their heads and waving to the crowd as blue and yellow confetti rained down.

Golden State was one game shy of completing a ideal 16-0 postseason run as the Cavaliers fought their way to a 137-116 win in Game 4.

The team is called the Golden State Warriors, but they don't belong to all of California.

It will start at 10 a.m.at Broadway and 11th Street, wind through downtown streets and end with a procession to the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center on Lake Merritt.

The Warriors made one of the great playoff runs of all time. The Warriors had never won a championship at Oracle until this year, making those sleepless three days after the Game 4 loss well worth it. "No matter where they go, it's still in the Golden State". Not if you ask Oakland. Three of the franchise's five titles were secured after the team moved to the Bay Area from Philadelphia.

Residents of Oakland, which recently learned it's losing one of its other beloved teams, the Raiders, to Las Vegas, are still reeling from a police scandal and mourning a deadly warehouse fire. The city of Oakland had their Dubs in a row and released the full parade route and schedule in the wee hours this morning, and the parade will be the morning of Thursday, June 15 - yes, the day after tomorrow -with a noonish rally afterward at the south end of Lake Merritt.
