Golden State Warriors Uncertain About Visiting White House

In the first 100 days of Donald Trump’s presidency, he declined any offer to involve himself with sports. The tradition of the president filling out a bracket for March Madness, a tradition started by Barak Obama in 2008, did not happen this year. While there was some controversy surrounding it, this was Donald Trump’s first couple weeks in office, he had far more important things to worry about.

Just under a month ago, we saw many New England Patriots players elect to not attend the white house reception to celebrate their Super Bowl LI victory.

Now, the Golden State Warriors are in the spotlight and everyone is waiting to see what they will elect to do.

“Today is all about celebrating our championship,” the team explained in a statement on Tuesday. “We have not received an invitation to the White House, but will make those decisions when and if necessary.”

Just before the organization released this statement, owner Joe Lacob was asked about the potential visit and responded by saying “I can’t believe we’re getting this question already. But honestly, that’s something we’ll worry about at the time. That’s a long time from now.”

For the most part, this entire situation has just been a plot by the news to try to get something controversial out of the players. The majority of the players have not even commented on what they plan on doing yet.

The one player who has spoken out is veteran forward David West.

“I don’t know. I probably won’t,” West said. “But I’m going to enjoy this. They’re going to have to get me down from this cloud. I can’t describe it.”

Regardless of what does happen this organization, along with all of the players and memebrs of the front office have the right to choose whether they want to attend or not. Of course, the media will dround them out with loaded queations trying to get a soundbite, but there it really not much to this situation.

Either they go or they don’t, it’s their choice.
