UPDATE:


The Golden State Warriors are the NBA Champions yet again, but they may not be making a familiar trip afterward. Most champions visit the White House and the President after they win a title, but it seems that the team has reportedly already decided not to do that:

Josh Brown is a reporter for CNBC who has never covered the Warriors or broken NBA news so this may be taken with a grain of salt. However, several Warriors have mentioned this season that they would not want to visit President Donald Trump’s White House.

Shaun Livingston said months ago that he would not visit the White House if they won the Finals and Steve Kerr has been pretty outspoken on the President’s policies as well as the Spurs’ Gregg Popovich. Kerr has even gone so far as to call those policies un-American and David West has said Trump’s approach is the opposite of what the forward teaches youth.

There are no other credible reports claiming the Warriors have already made this decision, but it’s not far-fetched to think that a consensus could have been reached considering everything that the players have already said this season. Tom Brady and several other New England Patriots players also skipped a White House visit this year. Some of them, Martellus Bennett, Patrick Chung, Malcolm Butler, James White, Danny Amendola, and others, did not go because of who’s sitting in office.
