Warriors say no decision has been made on White House visit

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant hoists the Larry O'Brien Trophy after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers in game five of the 2017 NBA Finals at Oracle Arena.

4C Insights Goldman believes even though this year's Finals only went five games compared to seven a year ago, basketball fans used social media unlike ever before.

There is no doubt the Warriors are a super team, with a roster that features Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant - both league MVPs - as well as Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. "But like I said, we'll all figure something out".

"We're obviously just getting started", the two-time NBA Most Valuable Player said. The 7-foot (2.13 m) small forward and 2017 Finals MVP has said that after his controversial decision leave the Oklahoma City Thunder and join the Warriors last offseason, he is not eager to move again.

"It's encouraging. Quite encouraging", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

The Warriors followed up their 2015 title by winning a record 73 regular-season games in the 2015-16 campaign, but stumbled with a 3-1 finals lead and fell victim to the greatest comeback in finals history by Cleveland.

Tens of millions flocked to social media in anticipation of this year's NBA Finals, the third straight year the Warriors and the Cavaliers fought for the championship. Kevin Durant is a great guy.

Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob says the team hasn't decided yet if they would go to the White House to visit US President Trump.

"I [heard] all the narratives throughout the season that I was hopping on bandwagons, letting everybody else do the work", Durant said.

Meanwhile on Twitter, James, Durant and Curry were among the top names mentioned on the social network. We're going to do everything we can to keep this team together. He was incredible all season long. You went to sleep hungry.

"But we were disciplined, we had a message everyday - it was always just about us". "So, this is the culmination of a year where they grew together and learned each other's games and got better and better all year, and it was just phenomenal to be part of".

"He's so great. He's so great, joining that team, to me, was nearly unfair", Smith said per The Washington Post.

The group that recruited Durant in the Hamptons that day last summer has the same philosophy about winning more championships.

We got better when I got hurt.
