But if the Warriors do want to make a larger statement, they could theoretically take Pelosi up on her offer and skip the White House visit.

The Golden State Warriors say no decision has been made regarding a potential White House visit to celebrate their National Basketball Association title.

The Warriors claimed their second title in three years after defeating LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers 4-1 in the best of seven series. The statement added the organization would make those decisions when and if necessary.

While a Warriors spokesperson has denied these reports, that hasn't stopped anyone from asking questions about what it would mean for our team and for our state if the Warriors were to boycott their meet-and-greet with the prez.

The Warriors' rejection of the White House's invitation builds on the sentiment expressed by several New England Patriots who announced they would not attend the Trump White House ceremony in April.
