Warriors say no decision has been made on White House visit

Warriors say no decision has been made on White House visit”

Draymond Green #23 of the Golden State Warriors and LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers fall to the floor during the first half in Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on June 12, 2017 in Oakland, California. And we just unleashed it in Game 5. "This is something that we want to continue to do, but for us to have these conversations that we had nearly a year ago and now being in this position, worth every shot we took in practice, fighting through injuries that he had this year, and it's an unbelievable feeling". Coach Tyronn Lue and other players commented after the game.

On the day after Trump's election, Warriors coach Steve Kerr denounced the Republican for his "racist, misogynist, insulting words". Most of the team's players have not publicly commented on whether or not they will make the trip because they just won their second National Basketball Association title in the last three years, and probably want to enjoy it for a while.

Unable to defend their title despite the league's highest payroll, rampaging through the Eastern Conference playoffs and James' brilliance against the free-wheeling Warriors for five games, the Cavs are no longer the team to beat.

Durant said he has "no question" in his mind he will be back with the Warriors.

"I used to love back in the '90s, watching teams play differently", he continued.

Future Hall of Famers on team: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Oscar Robertson.

Durant, an eight-time All-Star who only needed a ring to cement his superstar status, scored 39 points in a championship-clinching 129-120 victory and averaged 35.2 points and 8.4 rebounds in these Finals. You had Utah with their 1-4 offense. DeMar DeRozan poured in over 27 points per game last season and Kyle Lowry added 22 points and seven assists per game as the Raptors soared to a 51-31 record and third in the East. The NBA champions have one of the best collections of talent in league history.

Aided by having James to build around and owner Dan Gilbert's willingness to spend, Griffin has assembled and overseen a roster that has made three straight Finals and is positioned to stay atop the East. When everyone is involved, touching the ball and cutting and screening, there's a magic that happens, there's something special where guys feel empowered, their defense gets better because they're involved. Even D'Angelo won an MVP! How does this team stack up against the Showtime Lakers or the Larry Bird Celtics?

And it came a year after an epic disappointment when the team blew a 3-1 lead against those same Cavaliers despite the best regular season in National Basketball Association history. Jordan led the league in scoring and Rodman in rebounding, and their three stars were perhaps the league's best defensive players at their positions, making it almost impossible to score against the Bulls at times.

The Warriors made one of the great playoff runs of all time.

Pressure Scale: 7. nearly all of the pressure actually falls on Durant, though it would be general manager Bob Myers picking up the pieces if the Finals MVP decides he wants his full maximum salary next season.

Future Hall of Famers on team: To be determined.
