Oakland triumphant as parade set to celebrate NBA's Warriors

"Has anyone ever thought that Donald Trump was a great leader?"

Last night, the Golden State Warriors defeatedLeBron James and theCleveland Cavaliers in five games on their home court in the Bay Area. Critics have called the Warriors a super team with the addition of Kevin Durant previous year.

Though the team has publicly said it has yet to receive an invitation to meet President Trump and would make a decision only if invited, two-time MVP Steph Curry sounds like he would vote against the meet-and-greet.

An estimated 1.5 million fans were on hand as the Golden State Warriors celebrated their second National Basketball Association title in three years with a parade through downtown Oakland. The visit featured a few moments of brevity and lightheartedness that showed how good of a sport Obama was.

General Manager Bob Myers, who helped assemble the Warriors lineup after the franchise spent years as the league's laughing stock, and savvy owner Joe Lacob fill out the rest of the team. "I'm confident we'll have him back. That's a long time from now".

"I'm sure as a team we're gonna have a conversation (about a potential visit)", he said. In making his point, he directed attention to the organization's drafting prowess and recruiting targets rather than just focusing on the fact that the team has four All-Stars in himself, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

Cleveland had a lot of defensive breakdowns, and this play I saw in the fourth quarter was really indicative of how Golden State's offensive weapons can be used to get a defense all jittery and nervous as a means to produce simple buckets, thus upping their efficiency. "I have a take, but I'm going to leave that to myself right now". They're going to have to get me down from this cloud.

The Bay Area is a well-known hotbed of civil disobedience, as it served as the birthplace of The Black Panther Movement and has been a place where protests live to fight against a corrupt system.

While it isn't yet known if the Golden State Warriors will visit the White House as a team after winning the 2017 NBA Finals on Monday, Andre Iguodala made it clear that he won't be part of it.
