Rihanna, Snoop Dogg, Others React to Golden State Warriors Victory

"Somebody asked me about (going to the White House) a couple of months ago, like a hypothetical, if the championship were to happen would I do it and I think I answered "I wouldn't go".

Kerr criticized Trump before the election, accusing him of using "racist, misogynist, insulting words".

The Warriors' rejection of the White House's invitation builds on the sentiment expressed by several New England Patriots who announced they would not attend the Trump White House ceremony in April.

Curry isn't the only player who feels this way.

The team issued the statement following multiple reports that the Warriors had voted unanimously against making a White House trip.

"It's a bittersweet moment today", said Carolina Gallegos, 32, an Oakland resident.

"Honestly, after that Christmas Day game, I kind of understood that we have such high IQ players that if I could be aggressive, do what I do and need to do every single night, everything will kind of flow from that", Curry said.

'All the tactics he used to get elected are the very things that someone like me, who works with youth on a consistent basis, are the things we try to talk our young folks out of being, ' West said. American teams and individual athletes from all sports have traditionally visited the president after winning a championship or medal. "We will handle that accordingly and responsibly, and do the right thing for us individually and as a group". "I don't believe we're a super team here".

"Of course, over time, we'll continue to look at the CBA", Silver said. We know it wasn't easy and we are just as happy for them as we are for the players themselves. "Let us enjoy that and we will figure it out". "So, I'll have that mindset, KD's going to have that mindset". It's about us supporting this championship. "The team will have a conversation about what's going on going forward".

"We're going to do what our leader [Curry] does", Iguodala said earlier in the week.

Durant did indeed join a ready-made contender by teaming up with two-time reigning league MVP Stephen Curry on a team that won it all in 2015 and were runners-up previous year after a season in which they had a record 73 wins in 82 games.

The down-on-its-luck city that always seems to take a back seat to San Francisco will get a rare to sit back and celebrate itself Thursday in a parade and rally for the hometown Golden State Warriors and their second National Basketball Association championship in three years.

Of course, none of this is meant to diminish the roles of other players and their families; this was just one I wanted to highlight. The team didn't even make the playoffs, much less threaten for a title, for almost two decades.
