NBA champion Warriors undecided on potential White House visit

"Warriors unanimously decline White House visit, per reports", shouted the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

"We try to talk our young people out of being bullies", he said. "I might call him and say, 'If they ask, just say our schedules conflicted.' And then if y'all write something, we'll say, 'Fake News'".

While the rumor has yet to be confirmed, it falls in line with past statements expressed by the team. The Golden State Warriors have not released an official statement on the issue, nor have any players, as of this writing, confirmed that they will be skipping a visit the White House.

MANILA, Philippines - The Golden State Warriors have yet to receive an invitation from US President Donald Trump's White House, but as early as now there is already a chance they would skip the visit.

It was no problem for Trump to welcome the New England Patriots to the White House.

The Clemson Tigers national championship team visited President Trump on Monday without much incident or protest. "There were times where I was just stunned looking at the talent on the floor between both teams".

Sessions: 'I did not recuse myself from defending my honor'
His refusals to comment, including about conversations with Trump on Comey's firing, repeatedly irked committee Democrats. Sessions requested an open hearing, though it's not clear what he will and won't address in his televised testimony .

"Today is all about celebrating our championship".

Iguodala says the basis of his decision is centered on racism and the divide he believes the Trump administration has widened since taking over as president.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr has ripped Trump as a "blowhard" and "ill-suited" for the office, and player David West said the president was a poor role model.

Livingston also said that the decision to visit the White House would ultimately rest in the hands of head coach Steve Kerr. "We have not been invited to the White House". Johnny Damon sat in for him, explaining to the president that the slugger's grandma was sick.

A precedent has been set that outstanding performers in sport will be honoured at the White House. And after the Tar Heels had won, he was more respectful of the honor, saying, "The office of the presidency of the United States is the most fantastic place you can be".

In case Steph Curry, Kevin Durant & Co. still want to make a trip to the nation's capital, however, Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sent out an invitation of her own.
