Warriors met with Barack Obama in DC, skip White House visit

In 2016, Obama hosted the team in celebration of their 2015 National Basketball Association championship.

Before they even made it to last year's championship, both the Warriors' Steph Curry and the Cavaliers' LeBron James said their teams would refuse a visit to the Trump White House.

An Instagram photo posted by the Warriors' Draymond Green on Thursday showed him and his teammates meeting with Obama before the team's 126-118 victory against the Washington Wizards in the nation's capital.

"It was awesome", said Warriors star Kevin Durant, who scored 21 points against the Wizards.

Beal hit 23 points the last time the two teams met, in a 144-122 win for the Warriors at the Oracle Arena back in October, whilst Thompson only managed 19.

The Golden State Warrior clearly preferred hanging out with President Barack Obama over President Donald Trump.

Adding one more twist of the knife to Trump's ego was the presence of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whose congressional district includes the Warriors' future San Francisco home arena. Trump again declared that the team wouldn't be invited for a visit. "But this was about learning, and inspiring youth, and it was incredible". Curry attended a screening of the documentary Emanuel, which he produced, at Howard University.

Following a screening of the film, Curry took part in a panel discussion where he was asked about the criticism directed toward athletes who wade into politics. They're passionate about what they believe. And there's a reason when you say something there are headlines.

"We've done that. And we'll continue to get better". "We have a commissioner [Adam Silver] that supports us in using our voice to speak for those who can't speak for themselves". "Appreciate the question. Doesn't mean I have to answer it".
