Why NBA champion Warriors could skip visit to Trump White House

Why NBA champion Warriors could skip visit to Trump White House

That is because the Warriors boast an intimidating starting lineup featuring four All-Stars in their 20s who are likely to be with the team for years to come.

They will participate in a crowning procession in Thursday's parade through Oakland. Roughly 1.5 million people are believed to have attended the day's festivities.

Tens of thousands of fans had taken their places behind barriers set up along the route by early Thursday. One pregnant fan even painted the Warriors' logo on her stomach. The Warriors won the National Basketball Association championship over the Cleveland Cavaliers earlie.

On Wednesday, Curry said that "as a team", the Warriors will "have a conversation" about a possible White House visit. "Redemption, congratulations Warriors, you deserve it", Oakland resident Craig Bordi said.

At the start, Curry took a back seat to let KD get comfortable.

Fresh off winning their second NBA Championship in the last three seasons, the talk about the Golden State Warriors quickly turned to whether or not the team would visit President Donald Trump at the White House.

James received a lot of backlash when he left Cleveland the first time, but now that he's delivered a championship to the city, it makes sense that LeBron will focus on the best options for his career in the summer of 2018. So he and a friend headed to Oakland and snagged a prime spot by 3 a.m. Others had the same idea and came prepared with mats, umbrellas, tents and blankets.

"They're assembled as good as you can assemble, and I played against some really, really good teams that was assembled perfectly, and they're right up there".

Golden State Warriors players and coaches celebrate with the Larry O'Brien Trophy after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers in game five of the 2017 NBA Finals at Oracle Arena. He got off his bus and hopped and shouted as he gave high fives to the crowd.

Then, as the finality began to sink in that there would be a new champion, he pivoted and walked purposefully toward the other end of the court, making a beeline for Kevin Durant, a rare equal whom he had spent much of these finals battling. Meanwhile, Klay Thompson threw T-shirts to fans and waved from the top of an open, double-decker bus.

Shortly before the 2015 same-sex marriage referendum in Ireland he came out as gay during an interview with RTÉ . The government confirmed the speech setting out its priorities would take place next Wednesday .

The parade wound through downtown Oakland before the rally near Lake Merritt.

"Well, it's a two-sided question because for me personally - I don't know", said James.

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.

"First of all, if everybody wanted Steph, he would have been the No. 1 pick". The Dublin/Pleasanton, Pittsburg/Bay Point and El Cerrito del Norte stations were the busiest, they said.
