NBA champion Golden State Warriors deny reports that they've decided against a White House visit with President Trump

Reports emerged on Tuesday morning that the NBA champion Warriors had already opted out of a visit to the White House, a decision the team is now denying ever happened.

2017 MVP Kevin Durant led the Warriors to their second title in three years on Monday night when Golden State took down LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120. According to several reports, the Warriors unanimously decided soon after their victory celebrations that they would not visit President Donald Trump at the White House to commemorate their championship win -- but the team has since said they have made no such decision.

"Today is all about celebrating our championship," the Warriors stated in responding to a Business Insider request for comment. "We have not received an invitation to the White House, but will make those decisions when and if necessary."

"NBA champion Warriors skipping the White House visit, as a unanimous team decision per reports," CNBC's Josh Brown originally tweeted on Tuesday morning.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has spoken out in the past against President Trump, describing him as a man who has "routinely used racist, misogynist, insulting words."

The Warriors attended the White House in 2015 when former President Barack Obama saluted their first title win.

President Trump has hosted the NFL champion New England Patriots, and NCAA football champion Clemson Tigers since assuming office in January.
