The Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers to take home the NBA championship Monday night in a 129-120 victory. It was the Warriors’ second title in the three seasons, and the third consecutive year Golden State and Cleveland faced off for the NBA Finals trophy.
Championship titles generally come with a visit to the White House, however, Raw Story reports the team plans to skip that custom.
Golden State has yet to confirm the decision.
A team representative declined to comment on the news, which started circulating online early Tuesday.
NBA champion Warriors skipping the White House visit, as a unanimous team decision per reports.

If the allegations are true, the Warriors wouldn’t be the first group of pro athletes who have opted to distance themselves from Trump. Following the presidential election in November, three NBA teams took a political stand by refusing not to stay at Donald Trump-branded hotels.
