It is tradition for championship teams of all sports to attend The White house after their wins. The Golden State Warriors have elected to not accept President Donald Trump’s Invitation, after winning four to one in their seven game series against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2017 NBA Finals. Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant are among
the most notable of players from the team to be in favor of not attending. The NBA Finals MVP, Kevin Durant expressed his rationale for his unwillingness to attend, in an interview with ESPN “I don’t respect who’s in office right now, so my voice will be heard by not doing that.”. The White House, under the Trump Administration, has already welcomed other teams such as The Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots, as well as The World Series Champion Chicago Cubs in order to honor their titles.
