USA: ‘Golden State Warriors always welcome in this White House’ – Biden honours 2022 NBA champions

US President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris honoured NBA champion Golden State Warriors at the White House on Tuesday.

Biden commended the Warriors for their performance stating “the Golden State Warriors are known as one of the most successful franchises in basketball and all sports. And four NBA titles, six finals, and — in the last eight seasons. That ain’t bad, man. That ain’t bad.“ The President also told the team, that they are always welcome in the White House.

The Warriors have won four championships in eight years, but they didn’t visit the White House during Donald Trump’s presidency as he publicly disinvited them after Steph Curry had stated he had no interest in attending the event.
