Warriors say no decision has been made on White House visit

Star player Steph Curry, who has an endorsement deal with Under Armour, has been critical of Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank's support of President Trump.

"We're going to do what our leader (Curry) does", Iguodala said.

"Somebody asked me about it a couple months ago, a hypothetical, if a championship were to happen: 'What would I do?'" Curry said. It's all bull. That's the bottom line when you look at what the results say from last night.

Kerr has been a vocal critic of Trump since Trump's election. And he's used it to share his opinions of Trump, for whom he has little respect.

However, with today's political landscape, and the newfound social agency among games' top athletes, politics play a huge part. Maybe you're anxious about this or that. When the chief executive of Under Armour, his shoe partner, described the president as a "great asset", the National Basketball Association players said he would agree with that description if the "et'" from asset is removed. "I mean, that's a long time from now".

The Warriors issued a statement on Tuesday, saying they have not obtained an invitation to the White House, but will decide when and if needed.

Guard Shaun Livingston said he wouldn't visit the White House if the Warriors won the title.

At the moment, Durant said he was more engrossed in enjoying the championship and the upcoming parade Thursday in Oakland, Calif. Durant is from a Washington, D.C. suburb not too far from the White House called Seat Pleasant, Md. "You feel me?" Rapper E-40 said.

"We respect the office of the presidency of the United States and what it stands for".

That is, should they receive an invitation. CNN has reached out to the White House for comment.

President Trump has already welcomed members of the New England Patriots and Clemson Tigers football team to the White House after their championship runs this past winter. So when Golden State's players came to training camp, Kerr made sure there were presents in their lockers: their very own "Supervillains".
