Golden State Warriors May Skip Pointless White House Photo Op

We have our first “sports team skipping White House visit” story in the Donald Trump era. The Golden State Warriors, who captured the NBA title on Monday night, will reportedly skip their visit to the White House.

The Warriors released an official statement that said, “We have not received an invitation to the White House, but will make those decisions when and if necessary.”

I hope Trump gets ahead of this and doesn’t bother the Warriors or any other sports team for a White House visit. It’s a dumb tradition anyway. You may recall the Patriots, sans Tom Brady, visited the White House after their Super Bowl victory. That whole thing turned into a mess that ended in a Twitter war. Because that’s how everything ends nowadays.

No word yet on what the Pittsburgh Penguins are going to do.
