Last month, Michele Roberts, Executive director of the NBA Players Association, said that if either the Cavs or Warriors won the NBA championship..neither team would accept the offer to visit the White House, suggesting that both teams were completely against the new president and administration.
And it looks like, a month later, that is EXACTLY what is happening.
After last nights game, where the Warriors beat the Cavs 129-120, NYC-based financial advisor and the CEO of Ritholtz Wealth Management, Joshua Brown, made an announcement on his Twitter account that our new NBA champs unanimously rejected the invitation to the White House.

Although there hasn't actually been an official team announcement YET, we can be pretty positive they won't be going.
