Warriors pay visit to Obama during D.C. trip

The Golden State Warriors met with former President Barack Obama on Thursday in Washington.

The visit, in Obama’s office, lasted about an hour. The Warriors contingent included the players and coach Steve Kerr.

Tony Banks, a member of the Warriors’ staff, posted a photo of the group on Instagram that has since been deleted, but a reporter for The Mercury News posted the photo on Twitter.

The Warriors visited Obama, a huge hoops fan, in the White House in February 2016 to celebrate their 2015 championship.

They did not go to the White House to celebrate their 2017 win. After some players on the team, including Stephen Curry, said they would not visit if invited, President Donald Trump tweeted that the invitation was withdrawn.

When the Warriors made their trip to Washington in 2018, they spent a day at the National Museum of African American History and Culture with youngsters from Seat Pleasant, the Maryland neighborhood where Kevin Durant grew up.
