“Why would any team go to the White House?” Or more specifically, “Why would any team in any sport go to the White House to see any president, ever?”
These are a few of the questions posed by Sportswriter Mark Purdy in today’s Santa Cruz Sentinel. It would be laughable if it weren’t so infuriating. He’s specifically referring to the NBA Champion Golden State Warriors. They supposedly voted unanimously last week to refuse an invitation to visit the White House, which was fake news because as of today they haven’t even been invited. Steph Curry, Andre Igoudala and Coach Kerr have all expressed negative feelings about President Trump.
Two years ago when the Warriors won the NBA Championship they busted their tails to make it to the White House to visit Barack Obama. Thrill of a lifetime I think they put it. Steph Curry has publicly stated that Obama is one of his biggest hero’s of all time, but of course Obama’s a big basketball fan so I’m sure that’s what all the gushing was about.
Barack Obama’s no longer in the White House, the thrill is gone and the current President is chopped liver. So now no team in any sport should ever visit the White House again, ever.
Funny how that works.
