The 2017 NBA champs have officially decided what they are going to do as a team instead of visiting the White House. According to all-star guard Klay Thompson, the Golden State Warriors made the collective decision to tour the National Museum of African-American History and Culture with local students in Washington, D.C.!
“The White House is a great honor, but there are other circumstances that we felt not comfortable going,” Thompson told reporters, according to the New York Post.
“We’re not going to politicize anything. We’re just going to go hang out with some kids and take them to the African-American Museum and teach them things we learned along the way, life lessons and hopefully give them some great memories,” he shared.
Y’all may remember Donnie uninvited the team to the White House after their hesitancy about going last year. In a recent Warriors statement, they said: “In lieu of a visit to the White House, we have decided that we’ll constructively use our trip to the nation’s capital in February to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion — the values that we embrace as an organization.”
