Warriors forward Draymond Green shared the following photo of the team’s gathering.
He writes, “Whole gang with the 44th president of the United States today.”
According to the San Jose Mercury News, the meeting lasted about an hour. “It was good,” said forward Draymond Green. “Private team meeting and team event.”
The Warriors previously made a traditional White House visit back in February 2016 when Obama was still in office, but they have not returned since Donald Trump took his seat in the presidency.
Back in 2017, Trump made his feelings clear about the team in a tweet saying, “Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team. Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!”
So, it came as no surprise when the NBA Finals champs were preemptively disinvited in 2018 as well. In fact, the Warriors gladly skipped the traditional White House visit last season and instead toured an African American history museum.
Clearly, this year is no exception as the team didn’t hesitate to snub Trump and his politics by having a private meeting with Obama instead.
