Warriors spend time with Barack Obama before Wizards game

Warriors Skip White House Visit and Meet with Obama in D.C Warriors spend time with Barack Obama before Wizards game

Logan Murdock of The Mercury News shared a picture of the meeting, with the Warriors surrounding a beaming Obama, who is a huge basketball fan.

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.

Members of the Golden State Warriors on Thursday spent time with former President Barack Obama while on the road. All-Star forward Kevin Durant said it was wonderful, and forward Draymond Green called it a "good private team meeting".

Only the players were part of the hour-long meeting with Obama and they weren't saying much about it afterward. Curry and Durant said their team wasn't planning on visiting Trump anyway.

Looks like the Warriors paid a visit to President Barack Obama during their visit to Washington DC. Players and coach Steve Kerr were reportedly reluctant to discuss the meeting, and an apparent photo of it posted to social media was later deleted.

It seems to make flawless sense that their paths would collide when Golden State visited town.

During last season, the team declined to visit the White House to see Donald Trump and instead took a trip to meet with local children. "Appreciate the question. Doesn't mean I have to answer it".

The Warriors are on a nine-game winning streak and sit atop of the Western Conference with a 34-14 record, the third-best in the league after the Milwaukee Bucks and the Toronto Raptors, who are 34-12 and 36-14, respectively.
