What do the Warriors think of Trump?

15 June, 2017, 01:36 | Author: Felix Jensen

NBC Sports reported simply that the "Warriors will skip White House visit", while the Independent reported that the "NBA Champions Golden State [sic] unanimously decide they will not be visiting White House". "I've never been on a team without an identity - without a toughness identity". Other prominent figures across the NBA have not been shy about criticizing Trump either, which only served to further heighten uncertainty about whether pro basketball's champs would visit the White House whether or not the Warriors or another team ended up winning the title.

"We have not been invited to the White House".

Several members of the reigning National Football League champion New England Patriots opted to skip the team's post-Super Bowl White House visit last April for various reasons.

"Trump couldn't be more ill-suited to be president, because he's a blowhard", Kerr told reporters in May.

Steve and I have a great relationship from our time together in Phoenix while I was general manager, and we share a lot of beliefs about how the game should be played and about the work ethic that goes in to being great.

Later Tuesday, the CEO of the reigning Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins said his team would accept an invitation to the White House.

Although Penguins owner Ron Burkle has been a Democratic donor and Morehouse worked for the Clinton Administration and for Al Gore during his 2000 presidential campaign, Morehouse added that celebrating at the White House has little to do with its occupant.

"I agree with that description, if you remove the 'et, '" Curry said, in response to Plank calling President Trump an "asset". He also said Trump is "the man who's going to lead you has used racist, misogynist words".

While such a decision would hardly be a surprise given several team members' public criticism of Trump's actions as president, the team insisted such speculation was premature. People are getting paid millions of dollars to go on TV and scream at each other, whether it's in sports or politics or entertainment, and I guess it was only a matter of time before it spilled into politics. The team is right - today should indeed be all about celebrating their championship, but it just so happens that that championship was won in 2017, in one of the most politically charged and polarizing periods in modern American history.
