Golden State Warriors: Kevin Durant won't visit White House

"Nah, I won't do that", Durant told Haynes.

But on Thursday, NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant made his stance on the issue clear: he would not go and does not want to meet President Trump.

"I don't respect who's in office right now", he said, referring to President Trump.

Liekwise, there's been no backlash against Trump from the Pittsburgh Penguins, who have said that, if invited, they will go to the White House. He will be choosing to sit out the visit, if the invite does occur. Russell Westbrook also said something in his speech. "When (Barack) Obama was president, we had so many hopes for our community", said During.

Durant is not the only National Basketball Association star to have come out against the president; earlier this week LeBron James made what is likely his strongest rebuke of the president yet.

That incident, and the president's highly criticized response to it and the people responsible, apparently led to Durant making public his opinion.

LeBron has been among those that have been the most vocal about his disdain for Trump and problems with the president's handling of this situation, but he hasn't been alone.

That visit, is a ritual for teams who come off of winning a championship the previous season.

The tradition of inviting sports teams to the White House dates as far back as 1865, but it was an infrequent occurrence.

Durant added that he believed Trump's time in office has escalated racial tensions in the U.S, calling the events that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia "unfathomable".

It should be noted that he last team to visit the White House, the New England Patriots also had players skip the visit with the commander-in-chief.

Price of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was below the predicted
Later this month, Samsung is expected to reveal the Galaxy Note 8 to the world, in a bid to take on Apple's upcoming iPhone 8 . Blass said pre-orders will come with either a 256GB microSD card and a wireless charger or Samsung's cute Gear 360 camera.

"So, to see that, and to be where we are now, it just felt like we took a turn for the worse, man".

"For us to move forward, we need more athletes and people of power and influence to come out and speak", Durant continued. "I knew it all along", he said. "I'm exhausted of you hearing whether you want to hear", Cain said.

"You can do that because you control that mechanism that says: 'no I am going to endorse or I am not going to endorse.'"
