Even though Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry previously said he wouldn’t be interested in a trip to the White House, two California lawmakers extended an invite to Capitol Hill after his team scored another NBA championship title.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Barbara Lee, both Democrats representing the West Coast state, sent the invitation to the Warriors and head coach Steve Kerr on Tuesday.
.@Warriors & @SteveKerr, you have once again dazzled America with outstanding performance on the court & inspired leadership off the court. @RepBarbaraLee & I would be delighted to welcome you to the Capitol! #DubNation #WarriorsParade https://t.co/CarFxbPoFB pic.twitter.com/BlfwGFkoD1

The Democratic lawmakers congratulated them on their “triumphant back-to-back victory winning the 2018 NBA Championship!”
“With your third title in the last four years, the Golden State Warriors have once again dazzled America with your outstanding performance on the court and inspired leadership off the court,” the letter read. “You continue to make the Bay Area and indeed the country deeply proud.”
Pelosi and Lee also wrote that they’d be “delighted” to have the Warriors visit “publicly as a team or personally as families,” to Capitol Hill. “Please consider this as a blanket invitation whenever your individual schedules allow.”
It is unclear if the team will take them up on their offer, which came days after Curry agreed with his opponent, LeBron James, on not accepting an invitation to the White House following the NBA finals.
