Durant Says He’ll Pass on the Opportunity to Celebrate Title Victory at the White House

A star of the Golden State Warriors says he wont go to the White House if invited.

FOX’s Jared Max reports:

The Most Valuable Player of the recent NBA Finals, Kevin Durant, says if Golden State Warriors “get” invited by President Trump to the White House, Durant won’t go.

He said he doesn’t agree with what the President agrees with and that by not attending, “my voice is going to be heard by not doing that.”

While several members of the Warriors have been outspoken against President Trump, head coach Steve Kerr may be atop the list, although in late June, he said it might be best to not boycott:

(Kerr) “Cause I think it could have really positive ramifications if we did go.”

How so, coach?:

(Kerr) “In a time where there’s so much divide and everybody seems to be angry with each other, it might be a good statement for us to go.”


(Kerr) “One of you players wants to voice your concerns over what’s happening, what better opportunity to do so.”

Warriors coach Steve Kerr one the “TK Show” podcast in June.
