Will the NBA Champion Warriors Visit the White House?

Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry, left, and Shaun Livingston speak with reporters during a news conference Wednesday, June 14, 2017, in Oakland, Calif. All the pieces that we have are important to the equation of winning a championship and competing for a championship every single year.
Much of this perceived step back from Curry lies with the adjustment period of playing alongside Kevin Durant. Most of the team's players have not publicly commented on whether or not they will make the trip because they just won their second National Basketball Association title in the last three years, and probably want to enjoy it for a while.
If so he will have help from shooting guard Klay Thompson and do-it-all power forward Draymond Green, who are already locked into long-term contracts with the Warriors.
Nancy Pelosi tweeted that she we would "be honored to welcome the team to the U.S. Capitol". We're going to do everything we can to keep this team together.
"Somebody asked me about it a couple months ago, the hypothetical, 'If a championship were to happen, what would I do?' I answered, 'I wouldn't go.' I still feel like that today". Odds are, this is not the last we see of them.
With winning a championship routinely comes the opportunity to visit the White House, but it's not clear if the newly-crowned Golden State Warriors will pay a visit to President Donald Trump just yet. "I think we handle (the White House situation) when it gets there".
That all spells trouble for the rest of the league, who saw the Warriors capture a title in 2015, win a record-setting 73 games the next regular season before Durant moved to the Bay Area and the team became a juggernaut. "But I'm going to enjoy this". But obviously as a team we're going to have a conversation.
"We had a moment".
