Golden State Warriors Deny Reports of Team Boycotting White House Visit

Less than 24 hours after winning the 2017 NBA Finals on Monday night, the Warriors unanimously voted to decline the White House ceremony honoring their Finals win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to several reports, including one by CNBC analyst Josh Brown.

As part of the Golden State Warriors' celebration, the team will be honoured with a street parade in Oakland on Friday, news.com.au noted. "We will make those decisions when and if necessary". In a written statement, the Dubs say they have not received an invitation yet: "Today is all about celebrating our championship".
