He didn't cite any "reports" but mentioned to his 721,000 followers that he had seen the report from other verified Twitter accounts.

Erroneous reports came out Tuesday morning saying the Warriors had voted unanimously to decline if invited by President Donald Trump.

Which now brings us to the truth. The Cleveland Cavaliers also visited previous year after cinching their championship; Obama also called Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue personally after the win, and noted that he emailed Lebron James personally to congratulate him on the win.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr told Monte Pool of NBC Bay Area last November that he would not accept an invite extended by Trump if the team won a championship. On the heels of Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank calling President Trump an asset, Stephen Curry - who is endorsed by Under Armour - said Trump was an ass. Tuesday, Pittsburgh Penguins CEO/President David Morehouse said in a statement that the recently crowned National Hockey League champs would accept a White House invitation and that "any opposition or disagreement with a president's policies or agenda can be expressed in other ways".

"This whole fairy tale about this post-racial utopia that Obama supposedly created is all bull", West said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

At the moment, Durant said he was more engrossed in enjoying the championship and the upcoming parade Thursday in Oakland, Calif. Durant is from a Washington, D.C. suburb not too far from the White House called Seat Pleasant, Md.

But this isn't the first time controversy has sprung up over a sports team meeting Trump.

The 2017 NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers was as exciting as expected. "You feel me?" Rapper E-40 said. It's about the guys next to you, about the flag, about the kids out there who look up to you and the United States.

Though NBA commissioner Adam Silver has implied all champions should be honored to receive an invitation from the White House, regardless of the resident, the Warriors - players, coaches and beyond - have been clear in disavowing Trump's conduct and policies.
