Golden State Warriors To Spend Part Of D.C. Trip With Local Kids, As They Won't Be Going To the White House

February 22, 2018

OAKLAND, Calif. -- With President Donald Trump tweeting last September that a White House invitation for the Golden State Warriors was "withdrawn," the reigning NBA champs have decided to go on a private tour of an undisclosed locale on Feb. 27 in their lone visit to the nation's capital, league sources told ESPN.

Head coach Steve Kerr left it up to the players to determine how they wanted to spend their time, and the players selected a venue in which local kids would join them.

It will be closed off to the media, sources said.
The players wanted the outing to be a personal, intimate experience.

"It's their championship, they got dis-invited to the White House, so it's up to them what they wanted to do.
So they made their plans," Kerr told ESPN.
"I want the players to have a good day and to do something positive and to enjoy what they're doing."

Steve Kerr is a really smart guy outside of basketball. As are a lot of his players. Totally support this move.

This is exactly what they should be doing. Meeting with trump is a waste of time.
