Stephen Curry was asked a couple months ago what he would do if the Golden State Warriors won the National Basketball Association championship and the traditional invitation to visit the White House was on the table.
Curry echoed many of those same sentiments, per Haynes. Nothing should distract from what we were able to accomplish together, the different kind of ceremonies and the traditions that have happened around championship-winning teams. "It's easier said than done, obviously, but that's the goal". There are decisions that need to be made every single year, and you have to assess the situation as it is.
Curry was sure to make clear that nothing was written in stone yet, and that the Warriors would talk the scenario over as a team before a final decision is made, but all signs now point to Golden State passing on the opportunity. "You don't want anybody to have to sacrifice in that sense, you don't want to force anybody to take that approach but at the end of the day we know what's best for us as a group going forward. And we are going to move forward with that when we have a chance to". We just won a championship, man. Let's see if we can do it again. "So, I'll have that mindset, KD's going to have that mindset".
Curry said he'd do "the right thing" for himself.
It is a tradition in the United States that professional sports teams visit the White House as the Chicago Cubs did in January when they spent time with President Barack Obama after capturing their 2016 Major League Baseball title.More news: Institutional Investor's Pro-Sucampo Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:SCMP) Sentiment In 2016 Q4

In response, Curry said, "Somebody asked me about it a couple months ago, like a hypothetical, if a championship were to happen what I'd do and I think I answered 'I wouldn't go.' I still feel like that today". "I still feel that way today".
The parade will go north on Broadway, turn right on Grand Avenue, then right on Harrison Street, turn left on 19th Street, continue on Lakeside Drive and end on Oak Street with a procession to the Henry J. Kaiser Convention center.
The players were mostly guarded on Wednesday about their political beliefs, but when asked if President Trump texted him, Durant had this to say: "Say what?!"
"How we handle things here, we talk about it as a team first", said Livingston.
