"Today is all about celebrating our championship", the Warriors said in a statement Tuesday.

There's a very thinly sourced rumor swirling around Twitter this morning that in the midst of spraying each other with champagne, the Warriors players called a team meeting to unanimously vote to not visit Trump at the White House.

Multiple members of the Warriors have expressed displeasure with Trump, including coach Steve Kerr's objection to Trump's immigration ban and Stephen Curry's assessment of the president.

Less than 24 hours after securing the title, the Warriors are rumored to skip the visit, according to Josh Brown, who hosts CNBC's "The Halftime Report". "We have not received an invitation to the White House, but will make those decisions when and if necessary".

Golden State Warriors fans are breakdancing in downtown Oakland and honking their horns in San Francisco to celebrate their team's latest National Basketball Association title. He also said Trump is "the man who's going to lead you has used racist, misogynist words". Steph Curry, in response to Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank's comments that Trump was an asset to the business community, quipped that he agreed if "you remove "et" from asset".

Warriors forward David West told ESPN that he "probably won't" go to the White House if extended an invitation.

Clemson visited the White House this week after winning the College Football Playoff championship in January. Several New England Patriots players declined to attend the Trump White House ceremony in April, though a significant amount of the team still made the trip.

In 2010, Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas refused to visit then-President Barack Obama in the White House, citing his personal political beliefs.
