Oakland triumphant as parade celebrates Warriors' NBA title

NBA Finals: Cavaliers season ends with Game 5 loss to Warriors

NBA Finals: Cavaliers season ends with Game 5 loss to Warriors

They have spent the entire season criticising President Donald Trump, and now it appears the Golden State Warriors are about to snub him in sensational fashion.

Several media outlets, including CNBC and the New York Daily News, reported that the Warriors plan to skip the visit per a unanimous team vote.

The Golden State Warriors twirled T-shirts over their heads and waved to the crowd from atop double-decker buses as blue and yellow confetti rained down on them during a parade Thursday to celebrate the team's latest championship. The Warriors didn't cheat, they simply built a great team, and added a Hall of Famer to it, while he's in his prime to make sure mistakes like 2016 don't repeat.

Warriors Coach Steve Kerr has been openly critical of President Donald Trump, especially the President's proposed travel ban to six Muslim-majority nations. In January, Kerr called the administration's travel ban a "horrible idea" and likened Trump's campaign to "The Jerry Springer Show".

The news that the team would skip the invitation from President Donald Trump for the annual photo op wasn't much of a surprise, this after Warriors player Shaun Livingston went on record saying he meant to skip. "So we'll handle that accordingly and responsibly and do the right thing for us individually and as a group".

"I hear all the narratives throughout the season that I was joining, I was hopping on bandwagons, I was letting everybody else do the work", Durant said.

Warriors forward Kevin Durant, who battled pop singer Rhianna during the finals and copped a hug from his mum after they secured the title, got caught up chanting MVP with fans while holding his trophy aloft much to their delight. "But I'm going to enjoy this. We're going to do everything we can to keep this team together".

Since then, the New England Patriots and national college football champion Clemson Tigers made visits to Trump.

The Warriors went 15-1 in this year's postseason, with sweeps in the first three rounds before beating LeBron James and the Cavaliers in five games in the finals.

"And when Steph turned that corner, I think it was after Christmas Day, when he turned that corner, we became nearly unbeatable".
