Warriors invited to Capitol
    2018-06-15  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE Golden State Warriors will not be celebrating their recent NBA championship with a trip to the White House.

But Nancy Pelosi hopes the team will opt to visit the U.S. Capitol instead.

In a letter addressed to coach Steve Kerr on Tuesday, Pelosi, the House Minority leader, and fellow California Representative Barbara Lee invited the Warriors to visit the Capitol building, according to a press release.

“We would be delighted to welcome you publicly as a team or personally as families to the United States Capitol,” Reps. Pelosi and Lee wrote in the letter. “Please consider this as a blanket invitation whenever your individual schedules allow.”

A Warriors spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment from USA TODAY Sports about the letter and whether the team has finalized any plans in lieu of a White House visit.

President Donald Trump told reporters before the conclusion of the NBA Finals that neither the Warriors nor Cleveland Cavaliers would be invited to the White House this year after leaders from both teams said they would not be interested in attending.

This will be the second year in which the Warriors do not celebrate their championship with a White House visit.

Pelosi tweeted an invitation to the team last season; the Warriors instead performed community service and spent time with local kids during their trip to Washington.

White House visits have long been a tradition for championship sports teams, but the practice has become less routine since Trump took office.

The president has not welcomed an NBA champion to the White House.
