The 2017 NBA Champs have let their opinions on our current President be known: they will break from tradition and skip out on visiting the White House this year.
Numerous reports have confirmed that the team decided, as a whole, to not pop by the White House to visit Trump this year.
This is a bit different than what occurred when the NFL's Super Bowl victors dealt with in-fighting from teammates in regards to visiting 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
To be fair, disliking President Trump is something that is popular to do up and down the chain of command in the NBA team.
The Golden State Warriors' coach, Steve Kerr, once asked:
"Has anyone ever thought that Donald Trump was a great leader?"
He's also referred to the President as both "ill-suited" for his latest gig, and called him a "blowhard."
The announcement of the team's decision hit Twitter, and immediately went viral.

As woke as any team in sports.
Many folks cheered this decision, too.
They've spent all season chasing one rubbery orange ball. Who can blame them for dodging another?— Thom Dinsdale (@thomdinsdale) June 13, 2017
They should visit Obama's house and have a press conference on his lawn.— John McFerrin (@tarkus1980) June 13, 2017

I know all major political players; yet I know only 4 basketball players: AJabbar, Jordan; Magic & LeBron. After this news, I will know more— Edip Yüksel
Unrelated, but funny all the same!
Please warn Trump that if he doesn't pluck up the courage to visit the UK soon, we'll have sunk under the ice caps he's melting.— Will Lake (@WillLakeCopy) June 13, 2017
Proud of them yet, sad for them.— Michael Kull (@mkulltra) June 13, 2017
They're being denied a " once in a lifetime" experience!
trump just ruins everything for everyone!
I'm a Thunder fan so I dislike the Warriors, but if this is true...I just gained a lot of respect for them!— Heather Bratcher (@heatherbratch) June 13, 2017
How will President Trump respond to this epic slight?
And don't pretend he won't have a reaction. Of course he will! That's what we love (and hate) about him!
Looking forward to the 3AM tweets, that's for sure.
