It didn’t take the Golden State Warriors long to decide to skip the traditional championship White House visit.

Less than 24 hours after winning the 2017 NBA Finals on Monday night, the Warriors unanimously voted to decline the White House ceremony honoring their Finals win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to several reports including one by CNBC analyst Josh Brown.

The Warriors attended the White House ceremony to honor their 2015 NBA Finals title when former President Barack Obama was in the White House.

The team has so far not commented or verified.

The Warriors had no such qualms when the United States had a real President.

And with any luck at all, we will never have to see abominations such as this with Trump and the Warriors.


SB Nation wondered if this would happen, six months ago, saying,

One of the great honors in America that comes with winning a championship in sports is the ensuing trip to the White House to meet the President of the United States. With the polarizing Donald Trump now taking over the White House, we may see a dramatic change to that long-standing tradition.
