Steve Kerr 'on a good path' and 'confident I'll be 100 percent'

Stephen Curry

"I don't want to go". "I could think "hell no I'm not going, ' or I could think "hell yeah I want to go" at the end of the day we're going to decide as a team", Green said. That's my nucleus of my belief". So has Warriors veteran forward David West, who "I will let everyone know my opinion".

The Finals MVP told The Mercury News' Mark Medina that he feels "blessed" to be earning what he's earning, although didn't go so far as to say he's willing to take another discounted salary in the future.

The big question of going to the White House is going to remain a relevant talking point until the Golden State Warriors officially make their decision. Rather than dodge the subject of whether he was willing to attend the White House then - something he easily could've done - Curry spoke his mind: if it was up to him, he said then, he wouldn't be making the trip.

The Warriors don't visit Washington until February 28, when they play the Wizards.

"I$3 t's not just me going to the White House", Curry said. "I really enjoy it and it's a good way to connect us all, but I'll scale back a little bit right now and just focus on playing basketball".

"This year reminds me of two years ago, training camp, with the continuity, nearly the exact roster coming back", Kerr said. "But I think what we're going to focus on in the near term is the process we employed to make that decision".

We live in an era now more than ever where athletes are using the platform they have been given to make their voices heard and to stand up for what they believe in.

"[But] it's not just me going to the White House ... if it was, this would be a pretty short conversation". Everybody else was telling me to relax, to snap out of it, but I was really, really upset with myself more than anything. We have an opportunity to send a statement that hopefully encourages unity, encourages us to appreciate what it means to be American and stand for something ... we want to take advantage of this opportunity [by not going].
