    U.S. Reps. Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Lee on Tuesday invited the Golden State Warriors to Washington, D.C., days after President Trump said the NBA Finals winner would not be welcomed to the White House. Lee and Pelosi sent a letter to Coach Steve Kerr as the team celebrated its victory with a parade through Oakland. “In celebration of your victory, we would be delighted to welcome you publicly as a team or personally as families to the United States Capitol,” the Bay Area representatives said. “Please consider this as a blanket invitation whenever your individual schedules allow.”

    Talk show host and comedian Steve Harvey referred to the Golden State Warriors as “gorilla’s,” on ESPN’s NBA Finals pre-game show. During an interview with ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, Harvey was asked if there was anything his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers could do to derail Golden State? Harvey responded by saying that there wasn’t, because they had “800-pound gorilla’s” on their team: The caption of the video asks Outkick the Coverage’s Clay Travis whether Harvey’s comments constitute a Doug Adler situation. Adler, who is white, was part of ESPN’s coverage of the Australian Open in 2017. During coverage of the match...

    I’m not a guy who’s going to be trying to bash people over the head with the Bible. I want people to know when they see me play that something is different, that I play for something different, and whether I’m talking about it [or not], I just hope by the way I carry myself and by the way I play the game, they can see there’s something different about that guy. And they find out what it is and then they know. It’s part of who I am. Those are the words of Stephen Curry, the superstar point guard...

    LeBron James kept willing the Cleveland Cavaliers back into the game, and George Hill nearly won the game in regulation, but the Golden State Warriors found their offense in overtime and walked away with an unsettling 124-114 victory in Game 1 of the N.B.A. finals on Thursday...

    Game 6 star Klay Thompson picked up three fouls inside the first four minutes of Game 7 and was forced to take an early seat. It left Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green to carry the offensive load for the Warriors but they shot a combined 3/14 from the field for 13 points to trail 24-19 after the first quarter.

    Sunday, May 27, 2018 The Warrior's Tale Posted by Daniel Greenfield The warrior's tale is a simple enough thing. Strong as steel, but fragile as chance. It is the wind in his soul and the wall we build around ourselves to tell us who we are. Before there were cities or nations, and railways and airports, computers and telephones-- the tale was told around campfires. Acted out in pantomime, dressed up in animal furs and cave paintings. But the tale was the same. The people were confronted with a threat and they called upon the best and strongest of their...

    A Navy SEAL who led a rescue operation to retrieve a fallen teammate on a treacherous mountain peak in Afghanistan will receive the Medal of Honor, the White House announced Monday. Retired Master Chief Special Warfare Operator Britt K. Slabinski will receive the nation’s highest military award on May 24, the White House said. Slabinski is credited with rallying a team of SEALs for a counter-assault on al-Qaeda fighters, who had pinned down another SEAL, Petty Officer 1st Class Neil Roberts, during a firefight in the early morning hours of March 4, 2002. Roberts had been ejected from a Chinook...

    Warfare has plagued our history of death and destruction. Civilizations had to adapt to the war mongering way of life. These culture bored many warriors who’ve had to be bad asses in order for their tribe to survive. Whether they’re leading an army to victory or going down in defeat even some may have strayed off course of the righteous way – one thing in common is that they all had that fighting spirit. Here are some of the most fearless warriors (badasses) from our history: (not the complete list)Galvarino If you’re a Wolverine fan, you’re gonna like Galvarino, he...

    Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr won two of his five championships as a player under San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, and Kerr has often spoken highly of his mentor. So it might not come as a surprise that Kerr believes Popovich would make a good U.S. president.

    submit to reddit Given President Donald Trump‘s well-chronicled feud with the NBA’s Golden State Warriors, it doesn’t seem the one athlete — indeed the one person — to be mentioned by name in a key explainer for the new GOP tax plan would be Golden State’s star player. But lo and behold, Trump nemesis Stephen Curry — one of the faces of the NBA — makes a cameo. In a portion of the document addressing concerns about small business taxes, Curry’s name was invoked to try to assuage fears that high wage earners like the basketball star will be taxed...

    Just as the Golden State Warriors set out to defend their NBA title, a legal defense is ramping up over how much the team will owe for improvements made to Oracle Arena once the franchise makes its planned move to San Francisco. Lawyers for the Warriors, in an Oct. 6 letter to the American Arbitration Association, argue that the team has no obligation to pay any remaining debt once it leaves Oakland. The arena’s operator, the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority (OACCA), contends the team must pay all the remaining debt — estimated to be about $40 million — regardless of...

    Golden State Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr released a first-person essay statement as told to Chris Ballard of on US President Donald Trump's protest comments on Sunday, September 24. Kerr's NBA championship team was disinvited from the White House after the team deliberated openly about whether they'd be interested in meeting Trump, who in a Washington Post/ABC News poll published Sunday was considered by 66% of respondents to be dividing the country. Trump singled out the team's star guard Stephen Curry in a tweet, an incident which Curry called "surreal." Kerr wrote that Trump's comments against NFL players who...

    President Donald Trump is going to war with some high-profile African-American athletes who have political thoughts on their minds. The President said that fans should walk out when NFL players like Colin Kaepernick take a knee during the national anthem to protest our nation's inadequate response to racial inequities. After the NBA superstar Stephen Curry told the media that he did not want to go to the White House to be honored by Trump, the President decided to take time from his busy day to tweet a withdrawal of the invitation. It would be easy to see this as just...

    LeBron James called Donald Trump a "bum" after the US President rescinded an invitation for Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry to go to the White House. Trump tweeted Saturday that Curry is no longer invited to the White House because of what the president called hesitation by the two-time NBA MVP in deciding whether to make the traditional champions' trip to Washington. That prompted an angry response from Cleveland Cavaliers star James. James tweeted: "U bum. Stephen Curry already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honour until you showed...

    The offer hasn’t even been sent, but Kevin Durant is rejecting it anyway. “Nah, I won’t do that,” Kevin Durant, the 2017 NBA Finals MVP, said about the possibility of visiting the White House. “I don’t respect who’s in office right now.” Durant told ESPN on Thursday that he would stay away from President Donald Trump, skipping the traditional White House visit that so many championship teams have taken. The team is scheduled to visit Washington on Feb. 28 to take on the Wizards, and if the White House asks Golden State to stop by, Durant will be absent. “I...

    Thankfully, with his loss in the 2017 NBA Finals, I should never have to hear anyone attempt to elevate LeBron James above Michael Jordan in the GOAT discussion. Unfortunately, I now have to listen to people claiming that the 2017 Golden State Warriors would beat the Michael Jordan-led Chicago Bulls of the 1990s. That claim is more ludicrous than claiming that LeBron is better than Jordan. Below, I've listed three reasons why Michael Jordan's Bulls would beat the 2017 Golden State Warriors. 1. Defensive Matchups The 2017 Warriors are an offensive juggernaut, no doubt. However, Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, and...

    OAKLAND, Calif. -- Kevin Durant capped his spectacular first season with the Warriors by bringing home that coveted NBA championship he joined Golden State last July so determined to get, scoring 39 points in a fast-and-furious, Finals-clinching 129-120 victory over LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night.
