Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr ripped President Donald Trump and his decision to disinvite the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles to the White House, saying the president is trying to politicize everything.
Curry and the Cavaliers' top player, LeBron James, already have said they would not want to make the White House trip this year. "We're not going to invite either team, but we have other teams that are coming", Trump told reporters.
Trump specifically mentioned Warriors guard Stephen Curry at that time and said the invitation was withdrawn because he was "hesitating".
"What else do you expect Trump to do?" said Durant, according to The Washington Post. We'll see. My attitude, if they want to be here, it's the greatest place on earth. "If they don't want to be here, I don't want them".
Curry was referring to the Warriors' decision not to visit the White House after winning the 2017 championship.
"I just remember I had inside position for the rebound on John Stockton, Kerr said following shootaround Thursday".
"By not going, hopefully that will inspire some change in terms of what we tolerate in this country", Curry said. "We all look forward to the day we can go back to just having a celebration of athletic achievement".
After last year's National Basketball Association title victory, Trump withdrew an invitation to the Warriors after Curry said he was considering not going.
When asked about the WNBA Minnesota Lynx not even being offered an invitation for a White House visit after they won their title, James said it didn't surprise him. Most recently, LeBron James spoke on Trump dis-inviting the Eagles.
Stephen Curry says he won't be attending any White House party should the Golden State Warriors win the NBA Finals. "Let's not let someone uninviting you to their house take away from that moment..." "We get it at this point, but it's good that guys are sticking to what they believe in..."
