The Miami Heat finished fifth in the Eastern Conference when James announced he was joining them, when KD joined the Warriors, they had just set a new National Basketball Association record for wins in the regular season. The Cavs seemed like they could pull off the comeback but fell short and everyone on the team felt the pain of losing in the Finals.
Most of the Warriors in the immediate aftermath of their game five victory did not publicly comment on a trip to the White House. "'I've never played on a super team.' You started the super team, bro". They signed Klay Thompson and Draymond Green to extensions and were still able afford to bring in free agent Kevin Durant for more than $26 million this season. "I think I answered that I wouldn't go".
"I know our front office is going to continue to try to put our ball club, put our franchise, in a position where we can compete for a championship year in and year out", James said.
The Warriors' statement comes less than 24 hours after Clemson visited the White House to honor a national championship win against Alabama in January, in which President Trump said the Tigers "won a championship game for the ages". It sounds like, if Golden State does accept an invitation, it can expect Steph Curry to skip the chance to shake President Donald Trump's hand.
Durant was once again the best player on the floor for the Warriors on Monday, hitting some timely three-pointers en route to a team-high 39 points. This is a moment that we all need to enjoy together. Coach Steve Kerr also has been outspoken about issues with Trump. And the different kind of ceremonies and traditions that have happened around championship-winning teams, we don't want that to taint what we've accomplished this year. I didn't go bald like Mike, but I'm getting there.
"We've overcome a lot of doubts", said Tulio Zelada, 28, a San Francisco resident who attended the parade. "So we'll handle that accordingly and responsibly". "I might call him and say, "If they ask, just say our schedules conflicted.' And then if y'all write something, we'll say, 'Fake News".
