Will the Golden State Warriors visit President Trumps White House now that theyve been crowned champions of the NBA?

Anyone who has paid attention to this group since Trumps ascent to power began knows where they stand on this front. From coach Steve Kerr and back-to-back MVP Stephen Curry on down, they have been vocal critics of the president and his principles " or perceived lack thereof.

Just last month, Kerr called Trump a blowhard and said he couldnt be more ill-suited for office. In early February, in response to Under Armor CEO Kevin Plank calling Trump a real asset for the country, Curry made his feelings known.

I agree with that description, Curry, who is the companys top NBA athlete and friends with former president Barack Obama, told The Bay Area News Group, if you remove the et from asset.

Considering the way the Warriors locker room is wired, with their leaders always setting the tone on this like-minded team, thats more than enough to eventually lead to them declining an invitation. As the Warriors were quick to point out on Tuesday in a team statement, no invitation had been extended and no formal decision had been made on their end. And as Warriors small forward Andre Iguodala said to USA TODAY Sports heading into Game 5, theres a chance the invite will never come.
