Warriors skip the White House, meet with former president Barack Obama instead
By Matt Bonesteel January 25 at 4:40 PM
The Golden State Warriors knew they would not be visiting the White House to celebrate their 2018 NBA title on their annual trip to Washington this week. They hadnít done so last year in recognition of their 2017 championship, with Stephen Curry saying he wouldnít have met with President Trump even if invited and Trump then withdrawing any invitation that may or may not have existed.

Instead, the Warriors this week met with the White Houseís previous resident, on Thursday paying a visit to former president Barack Obama at his Washington office ahead of their game that night against the Wizards.

1. Everyone in the photo looks so happy

Unlike, say, the gala event at the White House for the Clemson football team.

5. the "delayed" the trip due to the shutdown, until May 9th

and from what i've read most the of players are not interested in going. The manager, Alex Cora, is Puerto Rican and fiercely proud of his heritage. He took the trophy and many players there after the series to party with locals. Was a beautiful thing.

Cora can't stand drumpf.
