Draymond Green's shirt is the pettiest part of the Warriors parade

"We have not been invited to the White House".

"I hear all the narratives throughout the season that I was joining, I was hopping on bandwagons, I was letting everybody else do the work", Durant said.

I think that the first two games we talked about past year, you can go over all the shootarounds the walkthroughs you want to go through, but until you actually get on the floor and play against this team, it's tough.

Curry is an endorser for the Under Armour brand of shoes and athletic apparel and he expressed concern over Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank calling Trump an "asset" to the country in a CNBC interview. "I still feel like that today", he said. All three of their rotation centers (Pachulia, West and McGee) are unrestricted free agents with only non-Bird rights, so it will be hard for Golden State to keep any one of them without another significant pay cut and it will likely take the Taxpayer Mid-Level exception (worth $5,192,000 this summer) to produce an entire center rotation. I came in and tried to help my team. I thought we gave the right amount of fight, the right amount of physicality, and they beat us tonight. What the regular season did show was that it was laughably easy for coach Steve Kerr to incorporate Durant into a team that specialised in passing, shooting, and small-ball defence.

The team responded amid multiple reports that Warriors players have already decided unanimously not to meet with President Trump.

"I have no idea what kind of president he'll be because he hasn't said anything about what he's going to do", Kerr said after the election. He also said Trump is "the man who's going to lead you has used racist, misogynist words".

"As someone whose family member is a victim of terrorism, having lost my father - if we're trying to combat terrorism by banishing people from coming to this country, we're really going against the principles of what our country is about, and creating fear". If anything, we could be breeding anger and terror, so I'm completely against what's happening. "It's shocking. It's a frightful idea".

Fortunately for President Trump it's not too awkward for him.

There's little doubt that his comments have emboldened his players to take stands of their own. Trump's divisiveness has made it more acceptable for players to voice their opinions.

The Warriors did not deny the report when reached on Tuesday morning, but said they had yet to receive an invitation to the White House, a courtesy that has been extended to every National Basketball Association championship team dating back to when Ronald Reagan was in office.
