In the absence of Tony Parker, Mills was catapulted into a starting role for the Spurs in their Western Conference Finals clash against Golden State. "It's fueling me inside right now, I can feel it".

Several media outlets, including CNBC and the New York Daily News, reported that the Warriors plan to skip the visit per a unanimous team vote.

Fans react at Oracle Arena after the Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of basketball's NBA Finals in Oakland, Calif., Monday, June 12, 2017. "Hell, nah", he said (via USA Today).

Still, with the anti-Trump sentiment coming from so many inside the team, it would not be much of a surprise if the offer to visit the White House was declined.

"We never had any discussion about it either during the season - that obviously would have been premature, that'd be bad karma to talk about that".

Presidents have hosted world champion sports teams for decades, but the tradition has become a hot-button topic for athletes in recent years. "We will handle that accordingly and responsibly, and do the right thing for us individually and as a group".

"So I saw these reports, and I'm picturing we're going insane in the locker room and pouring champagne on each other's heads".

"I can't believe we're getting this question already", Lacob said. "Super team? No, we just work extremely well together". Dub Nation hooted and cheered for its favorite basketball players, toting signs like "We are the champions", "Gold blooded", "Splash bros are my heroes", "Draymond's got his game on" and "All hail JaVale".

"We're going to do what our leader [Curry] does", Iguodala said earlier in the week.

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry said Wednesday that if the team is invited to visit the White House after winning the National Basketball Association championship then he probably won't go.

"We dealt with a [expletive] ton of adversity, excuse my language, but, I mean, the daily evolution of what can you accomplish on a day-to-day basis when you are around so many different individuals, that makes up an organization".

Another Cleveland player, Iman Shumpert, was more direct, saying in November, "I'm not going to the White House".
