Warriors say no decision has been made on White House visit

The Warriors beat LeBron James and the Cavaliers in five games in the Finals.

Green interacted with the crowd on numerous occasions as the parade meandered through the streets of Oakland, where excited fans serenaded the players.

Golden State won the series in five games and Green displayed a shirt that said "Quickie" with the Quicken Loans symbol.

James teamed up with All Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on the Miami Heat to win his first championship in 2012.

The Warriors drew criticism for becoming a "super team" with Durant's addition.

The Warriors issued a statement Tuesday saying that "today is all about celebrating our championship" and that they have not received an invitation to the White House.

And it came a year after an epic disappointment when the team blew a 3-1 lead against those same Cavaliers despite the best regular season in National Basketball Association history.

"We need to enjoy this to the fullest", star guard Stephen Curry said.


The Golden State Warriors said they have not yet made a decision whether to visit the White House to celebrate their 2017 NBA Championship win.

Curry hopped and shouted as he gave high-fives to the crowd after getting off a double-decker bus during the Thursday parade.

The championship was the first of forward Kevin Durant's career, and the NBA Finals' Most Valuable Player took in the moment.

"There's no doubt in my mind that (Kerr) will return as the coach of this team", Myers told ESPN.

The Warriors attended the White House ceremony to honor their 2015 NBA Finals title when former President Barack Obama was in the White House.

Warriors players on buses passed Cahambing and his family twirling T-shirts over their heads and waving to the crowd as blue and yellow confetti rained down. The Warriors won a league-record 14 consecutive games during this year's playoffs and went 16-1 overall in the postseason. It was the second parade in three seasons for the Warriors. Not if you ask Oakland.

Spectators can line up for the parade and rally as soon as 5 a.m., and taking public transportation is encouraged.

Residents of Oakland, which recently learned it's losing one of its other beloved teams, the Raiders, to Las Vegas, are still reeling from a police scandal and mourning a deadly warehouse fire.
