National Basketball Association champion Warriors skipping the White House visit, as a unanimous team decision per reports. "I think we handle (the White House situation) when it gets there".
Members of the newly crowned Warriors have been vocal about President Donald Trump in the past. He also confirmed that the team has yet to discuss the matter, which the Warriors made clear after an earlier report that the team had unanimously settled no not attending. Nothing should distract from what we were able to accomplish together and the different kind of ceremonies that have happened around championship-winning teams.
The 33-year-old swingman, known as a ferocious defender and dunker as well as being socially conscious, suggested it's possible Trump may not even be in the White House by the time the team potentially heads to Washington D.C. and that a scheduling conflict could eventually lead to the country's buzzy aspersion, "fake news".
As for a possible White House visit for the new National Basketball Association champions, Kerr said the unsubstantiated Tuesday report saying the Warriors unanimously voted following the game to decline an invitation from President Donald Trump was false.
"Steph Curry just said he probably wouldn't go to the White House". Now, in the aftermath of his second championship in three years, Kerr says he wants to coach the Warriors "for a long time". "I think it's just the ignorance, the convenient ignorance". I mean, are you insane?
"It's a fine line, but it's about how we're operating, how inclusive we are, what we stand for", Curry said, per Thompson. That's not going to happen.
"This is a moment we all need to enjoy together", he said. I feel like there are actions that occur, that continue the dividing of everyone.
As Iguodala sees it, the Trump administration has made matters worse when it comes to the racial divide in America. "And I think that's done on objective".
"There's a respect for the institution, for the office; there's a respect for our government that I think you have to take into account, regardless of people's opinions of the person sitting in that chair", Kerr said.
