When the Golden State Warriors play at the Wizards this month, the team will go on a private tour of an undisclosed locale.
Steve Kerr left it up to the players to determine how they would spend their time and they selected a venue in which local kids would join them. The session will be closed to the media.
"It's their championship. They got disinvited to the White House, so it's up to them what they wanted to do. So they made their plans," Kerr told ESPN. "I want the players to have a good day and to do something positive and to enjoy what they're doing."
Before Donald Trump revoked the Warriors' invite, the players were prepared to vote against visiting the White House, sources said.
"We're not trying to divide and separate this country," Curry said at the time of Trump's tweet. "We're trying to bring everybody together and speak about love and togetherness and equality. I think that was demonstrated in response to what happened this morning, which is a powerful thing for sure."
"At the end of the day, it's about us celebrating a championship, so there's no point in getting into the political stuff and all that," Draymond Green told ESPN. "It's about something we did great. Why make it about [politics]?"
