NBA Champs Visit White House

President Barack Obama welcomed the 2015 NBA Champion Golden State Warriors to the White House, Thursday.

The President recognized NBA MVP Stephen Curry, but also poked fun at his game.

"Obviously, watching Steph play is incredible, and for anybody who enjoys basketball, it is just a lot of fun. But it's not just Steph. There's the other "Splash Brother," Clay who dropped 37 points in a quarter - and whose jump-shot is actually a little prettier. I mean, I'm just saying," Obama joked.

The Warriors visit continued a tradition started by President Obama of honoring sports teams for their efforts to give back to their communities, a White House statement said.
