Warriors Expected To Decline Possible White House Invitation

Warriors Expected To Decline Possible White House Invitation”

Golden State and Cleveland have met in the NBA Finals each of the last three years, with Oakland hosting two parades and Cleveland getting one. It also features a black knit collar and tongue, as well as a translucent sole. Following Golden State's 2015 National Basketball Association championship, the team visited the White House in February 2016, when former president Barack Obama, an occasional golfing partner of Curry's, was still in office.

Curry's comment came two days after Golden State defeated Cleveland 129-120 to wrap up its series in five games and earn its second National Basketball Association championship in three years.

It's the team's second title in three years, and the last time the Warriors held a championship parade in 2015, there were about 1 million people witnessing the events. And while Curry said the Warriors would have to discuss what to do as a team - "We'll handle that accordingly and responsibly", Curry said, "and do the right thing for us individually and as a group" - that he was willing to state his position publicly is a pretty strong indicator of what direction the team's decision is headed.

As if the Warriors - the same Warriors who'd just choked up a 3-1 lead and a second consecutive title to the Cavs - were already all but guaranteed a ring in 2017 and Durant was just hitching a ride with them.

So Thursday was a rare chance for the city to celebrate. He got off his bus and hopped and shouted as he gave high fives to the crowd.

But several of the Warriors, including Curry, find themselves opposed to some of the philosophies espoused by President Donald Trump.

Surely Kevin Durant, the newly-minted NBA Finals MVP who joined the Warriors after their record 73-win season, has a different take on his own championship squad. "We have not received an invitation to the White House, but will make those decisions, when and if necessary".

"Just too much" is what one headline read in describing the victorious 2016-17 Warriors.

"We've overcome a lot of doubts", said Tulio Zelada, 28, a San Francisco resident who attended the parade.

The parade wound through downtown Oakland before the rally near Lake Merritt. This too often renders ineffective the rule allowing incumbent teams to pay more on maximum deals than other teams in free agency.

On Wednesday, Kerr was a guest on Lowe's podcast, "The Lowe Post," and admitted, "We probably ran it more in that game than we did literally all season long, combined". "You've got people of every race, color, religion, creed, whatever, and everybody's just coming together and loving this team". After losing to the Warriors in Game 5, The King said he's never played for a superteam in his career - not now, next to Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, and not years ago next to Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

"It's still in the Bay", he said. But it shows the Warriors' unbelievable depth and talent that their fall-back play in the Finals is a basic action 29 other teams would be giddy to use.
