Major takeaways from Golden State Warriors' 2017 NBA championship

"Somebody asked me about it a couple months ago, a hypothetical, if a championship were to happen: 'What would I do?' " Curry said during his exit interview at Golden State's practice facility Wednesday afternoon. The other reasons I like him is because he is a good dude and I have a buddy that coached him in high school and always said what a nice dude he was.

The team issued the statement following multiple reports that the Warriors had voted unanimously against making a White House trip.

The tradition of sports teams visiting the White House dates to the 1800s.

"But obviously, as a team, we're going to have a conversation", Curry said. We want to keep this thing together and see how we can continue to keep getting better. "I think we'll do it again next year". That's a realistic thing to say though, right?

But even though the Warriors are yet to make a decision, it seems many of their players have. The Warriors made a visit after winning the 2015 National Basketball Association title, while the Cavaliers went to the White House previous year after beating Golden State in seven games. However, more than a few members of the team have been openly critical of Trump since he was elected in November.

Even Warrior's head coach Steve Kerr has spoken out against Trump's bigotry, so it isn't likely that he would so much as bat an eye if his players made a decision to skip the visit. Curry basically called Trump an ass.

Spain striker Diego Costa on Palmeiras radar
AC Milan are targeting a move for Diego Costa from Chelsea in a deal that would perhaps grab Celtic's attention. I care a lot for Atlético and I will continue to care for them very much whether I join them or another team.

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.

"Hell nah", Iguodala told usatoday.com on Tuesday.

In 2010, Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas refused to visit then-President Barack Obama in the White House, citing his personal political beliefs.

"Hell nah", Iguodala told USA TODAY's Sam Amick about a potential White House visit.

For that reason, and many other terrible decisions and statements from this administration, we urge the Warriors to decline any invitation from the White House to celebrate this victory. "That doesn't mean I wouldn't want another championship", he added.
