The Golden State Warriors on Tuesday shot down reports saying they had already chose to not visit the White House after winning the 2017 championship, but apparently, Steve Kerr made his decision months ago.

The team rode buses along the parade route before players and coaches spoke to the crowd at a rally.

"Today is all about celebrating our championship", the Warriors said in a statement released Tuesday, hours after the team dethroned the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

But if the Warriors want to keep this lineup intact, they won't be done spending money once they get Curry's situation settled because Durant can opt out of his deal this summer. The reports did not specifically cite President Trump as a reason, but Warriors coach Steve Kerr and star Stephen Curry have been particularly critical of Trump since the election.

"It's different just because of what happened past year to be honest", Curry said. A lot of people doubted Steph, saying he wasn't going to be this good. He stated following the clincher, "I had a letdown last year and if KD was the consolation prize to loss, thanks for the loss, and we're the champs this year".

Following the victory Monday night, Warriors' fans danced in the streets in downtown Oakland and wildly honked their horns in San Francisco.

The Warriors' Andre Iguodala was less subtle, when asked before his team's title-clinching win Monday about a potential trip to Trump's White House.

Fans of the Golden State Warriors will celebrate their team's victory at a parade in downtown Oakland starting Thursday morning, according to the National Basketball Association.

Green had sat out game five just a year ago after being suspended because of flagrant foul point accumulation after he swiped at James' groin in game four.

James teamed up with All-Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on the Miami Heat to win his first championship in 2012. Klay Thompson, he was just supposed to be this OK shooter in the league, like that's what you thought of Klay Thompson when he came in.

Sheldon Glasgow, who has been living in Oakland for 10 years, said he wasn't angry the Warriors were moving. "Coach puts us in position to maximize our strengths".

"It's still in the Bay", he said.

Golden State missed becoming the first team to march through the playoffs undefeated, but they ended their playoff run with a 16-1 record, which still gave the Warriors the best winning percentage of any title team at.941.
