Steve Kerr Says He Plans To Coach Warriors ‘For A Long Time’

Following the victory Monday night, Warriors’ fans danced in the streets in downtown Oakland and wildly honked their horns in San Francisco.Golden State already looked the part of a dynasty in the making after back-to-back NBA Finals appearances, a championship in 2015 and a record-breaking 73-win regular season effort the following season.A report surfaced shortly after Game 5 claiming that the Warriors would unanimously refuse any invitation to the White House, but that report was clearly debunked by the organization’s statement.Warriors coach Steve Kerr expressed his disappointment with the election results last November saying after the election that President Donald Trump regularly used “racist, misogynist, insulting words” during his campaign. And forward David West made it clear Trump went against his belief system.After hearing reports of a possible White House snub, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted, “The @warriors’ leadership is inspiring”.The @Warriors’ leadership is inspiring.On August 30th, 1865, President Andrew Johnson invited the Brooklyn Atlantics and Washington Nationals baseball teams to the White House-and so began the ritual of melding America’s sports and its highest elected office.The party began as soon as Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and the Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers, 129-120, at Oracle Arena to clinch their second championship in three years. I’d be honored to welcome the team to the U.S. Capitol. Several New England Patriots players declined to attend the Trump White House ceremony in April, though a significant amount of the team still made the trip. Both championships came during the Obama administration.
