NBA Champion Warriors Unanimously Decide to Skip Trump's White House Visit

Well, that was fast.

Published June 13, 2017

Well, that was fast. Really fast.

After defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers last night to clinch their second NBA title in the past three years, the Golden State Warriors didn't waste any time in reportedly announcing that they will not visit President Trump's White House, as reported by CBS Sacramento.

And according to sources, the decision by the 2017 NBA champion Warriors to skip the White House visit was unanimous.

Way before the Finals even ended last night, Steph Curry called Trump an "ass" after Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank praised the president. Warriors coach Steve Kerr also slammed the controversial commander in chief, saying the former reality TV star is "ill-suited" for the Oval Office. Warriors guard Shaun Livingston told local 95.7 FM's "The Game" that "I definitely wouldn't go," referring to the team visiting Trump at the White House.

After winning the championship, Warriors forward David West spoke out against Trump as well.

And people applauded the Warriors for their quick decision.

That being said, Warriors owner Joe Lacob may have not received the memo regarding the players' decision. Appearing on ESPN's First Take today, Lacob wouldn't definitively answer whether or not the Warriors will visit Trump's White House to have their championship honored.

"I can't believe we're getting this question already," Lacob said. "But honestly, that's something we'll worry about at the time. That's a long time from now."

Watch Lacob address it just past the 4:15 mark of the video below.
