  • The Golden State Warriors reportedly decided to skip White House visit

The Golden State Warriors said they have not yet made a decision whether to visit the White House to celebrate their 2017 NBA Championship win. Oh, there would be more partying, for sure. He won a championship, and then we were close and didn't win one.

An advice for The Game: He may want to be careful next time he's in Cleveland!

But Business Insider pointed out Warriors coach Steve Kerr - who has openly criticized the Trump administration's proposed travel ban - reportedly decided in November that he wouldn't accept an invitation to the White House if the Warriors won the championship.

"Somebody asked me about it a couple months ago like the hypothetical if a championship were to happen what would I do and I think I answered I wouldn't go".

After Golden State general manager Bob Myers said Monday he fully expects Kerr to be the team's coach next year, Kerr said Wednesday he is "planning to coach for a long time". "So you have a clear sense of what matters when you go through that stuff".

Owner Joe Lacob will be pulling out his pocketbook to potentially give Curry a $200 million deal.

Warriors' Game 5 win wraps up highly-watched NBA Finals
Each year at the start of the playoffs, James swears off social media until a day (or more ) after the postseason ends. It is a business. "It's hard to compare to what that feeling was the first time, but it's pretty close", Curry said .

Unless the team can find a way back in, the Warriors will have no draft picks this year.

"It's so rare so I know exactly how lucky I am", Kerr said.

Golden State used a 28-4 second-quarter run to take charge - just after it appeared Durant should have been called for a third foul on a basket by James - and got to celebrate right at home in Oakland surrounded by a deafening home crowd waving yellow rally towels and holding up phones to shoot video and photos as the final minute of the clock ticked away.

One moment late Monday captured the camaraderie that evolved. The Warriors won 129-120 to win the National Basketball Association champion.

"I left everything on the floor every game", James said after averaging a triple-double in his eighth Finals.

"It's kind of insane to think about the conversations we had this summer and going into the year about how we can both mesh and do what we do and be the players that we are".
