For now, Stephen Curry not interested in a White House visit

Typically, American teams that win championships in American major team sports get invited to the White House. Why? It’s tradition. And it’s fun. So, it happens. (Is there more to it?)

But right now, the current political climate in the United States (and the world, really) is… shall we say… complicated.

It’s not yet known if the Warriors will receive an invite to visit the White House, to pal around with President Trump. It’s also not yet known if the Warriors, either as individuals or as a group, would accept the invite.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle: “Somebody asked me about it a couple months ago, a hypothetical, if a championship were to happen: ‘What would I do?’” Curry said Wednesday afternoon. “I think I answered that I wouldn’t go. I still feel like that today.”

Some would suggest if you disagree with a politician, it’s best to engage, discuss matters, see if you can affect change. Others would simply want to avoid that politician altogether, using absence as a statement. It’s too early to speculate on what may happen. We’ll see.
