Curry and Durant want Warriors stay

Finals MVP Kevin Durant declined to say whether he would accept an invitation and teammate Andre Iguodala said he would follow Curry's lead.

Golden State denied that in a brief statement, saying "today is all about celebrating our championship".

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who represents San Francisco, which neighbors the team's Oakland, Calif., facility, seemed to embrace reports of the Warriors' decision before the team poured cold water on them. The team's coach, Steve Kerr, slammed the president's travel ban executive order in January as a "horrible idea", and forward David West called Trump's election "disheartening". A number of New England Patriots players opted not to visit Trump's White House in protest after they won the Super Bowl in February. But like I said, we'll all figure something out.

Durant's gesture would allow the Warriors a chance to use their Bird rights to re-sign their own free agents (mostly notably Iguodala and Livingston) to deals far more comparable to what they would likely see on the open market.

Durant then replied by saying, "I don't think it's fair to minimize what Kevin offers Golden State, and what they offered him, to say that it was the weakest move in National Basketball Association history". People are getting paid millions of dollars to go on TV and scream at each other, whether it's in sports or politics or entertainment, and I guess it was only a matter of time before it spilled into politics.


Curry embraced Durant's arrival after the Warriors dropped last year's finals to Cleveland in seven games, an unselfish attitude that reflected Durant's desires and created an inside-outside pairing that was almost unstoppable.

"All the tactics that he used to get elected are the very things that someone like me, who works with youth on a consistent basis, are the things that we try to talk our young folks out of being". "I mean, that's a long time from now", Lacob told moderator Molly Qerim. Some of us need to remove ourselves from the moment and remember there are some pretty awesome stories that have already been told.

"I personally will do the right thing for me", said Curry. "So you don't know what's going to happen".

The players were mostly guarded on Wednesday about their political beliefs, but when asked if President Trump texted him, Durant had this to say: "Say what?!"
