Warriors have their plans in place for skipping White House visit

Ultimately, the team chose to visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. with local students from Durant's hometown of Seat Pleasant, Maryland to attend along with them.

"Yeah, that's from a bunch of people that don't understand basketball", Durant said after his Golden State Warriors held their shoot-around at Capital One Arena on Wednesday morning before facing the streaking Wizards. And it might take 24, 26 minutes to really create that separation and gain that momentum, and we come out of the halftime with some juice, some energy and it's winning time. I think one time I retired, when I was with the Spurs, after 2003. We've done our part to try to further that message.

We also go through the top Warriors headlines of the week including Curry's comments about the Rockets confidence after going 13-0 in the month of February.

Just don't tell that to Kevin Durant. "So hopefully it inspires them to just be whatever they want to be in life". "We wanted to give them an opportunity to experience that and experience us in that kind of environment would be most impactful".

"They took a lot of my shots away". Those guys are just unbelievable people.

"If you haven't gone before, you have to go", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. They got disinvited to the White House, so it's up to them what they wanted to do. Green said. "It got everybody going by an incredible shooter". "When we walked in all they screamed was, 'Steph!"

"It's kind of amusing that [the president's] tweet was sent out before we had a chance to get together as a team". I'm doing whatever the organization wants to do.

When a few students asked where they could learn about Tupac Shakur, West tracked down an exhibit toward the end of the tour that featured the likeness of the late rapper. For the Wizards to have a shot tonight, they'll have to defend the 3-point line and make sure they defend in transition, an area Golden State can really make teams pay.

"Not at all. Because my view of the championship was exactly what we did. I think everything turned out great". Visiting the White House is an wonderful experience. "The White House is a great honor, but there's extenuating circumstances that we felt that we're not comfortable doing", Thompson told reporters. But the Warriors, who were famously disinvited by President Trump past year, chose to spend their time alongside young D.C. -area students at the museum.

"If you've never been before, you have to go", Kerr said. "It was a great day". They followed up their complete and utter 32-point annihilation of the Oklahoma City Thunder with another easy 125-111 win over the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.

His teammates say that's typical Thompson.

The museum was attractive, Durant said, and he echoed Kerr's opinion that "everyone needs to see it". "It's all good. I'm sure somebody would have figured it out".
