Warriors' Steve Kerr plans to coach for 'a long time'

The 2017 National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors pushed back against reports Tuesday that they had decided not to visit President Donald Trump's White House, a decision that would break decades of tradition for American sports teams.

"Today is all about celebrating our championship".

Comedian/actor Kevin Hart sent a congratulatory video on Instagram to Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant after getting his first championship in Monday's Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

Shortly before the team issued its statement, Warriors owner Joe Lacob was asked about a potential White House visit during an interview with ESPN's "First Take". A lot of people have been doubting him and hoping that he fails and that I fail, hoping that we fail as a group.

Durant was equally effusive in praise of Curry, saying they have grown closer as the season progressed. The brand has also readied a range of limited-edition product including customizable Air Force 1s with cork details - a nod to the champagne bottles that are a staple of National Basketball Association championship celebrations.

"I told him, 'When you play with force, I've never seen a player like you, '" Durant said of Curry. Golden State in 2015, the Cavaliers past year, the Warriors again this time.

James received his share of criticism in the move, but ultimately won a title without a "super team" a year ago.

"I remember exactly where I was this time past year, and it wasn't a great feeling", Curry told the crowd at a rally after the parade.

Durant is so dedicated to winning multiple championships that he is reportedly considering taking less money from the team in order to free up space to re-sign key reserves like Shaun Livingston and Andre Iguodala.

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.

The Warriors won in 2015 before the Cavs made their historic comeback previous year.

The parade wound through downtown Oakland, where fans in Warriors shirts and hats cheered their favorite players.

For all that chatter about chemistry on a super-team - some called them "supervillains" - how there might not be enough shots for all the big-time scorers, the Warriors kept winning as the world watched the every move of the East Bay franchise under the microscope.
