The Golden State Warriors are on a roll, having won their last nine games after Thursday’s win over the Washington Wizards. Stephen Curry is still shooting the lights out. DeMarcus Cousins is fitting in with his new teammates. Adding to the good vibes, the Warriors met up with an old friend, President Barack Obama during their lone visit to our nation’s capital.
According to ESPN, the visit lasted for about an hour and took place in President Obama’s office. The trip was reportedly set up by Curry who has become friends with the former President over the last few years.

Traditionally, championship teams typically visit the White House when traveling to the nation’s capital. However, the Warriors have had tense relations in the past with President Donald Trump, who disinvited the team to the White House in 2017.
The Warriors have always had a positive relationship with Obama. He was the President when the team visited the White House after winning the NBA championship in 2015, and Curry has golfed with him on several occasions.
Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, talked with Curry and fellow Warriors after the game.

Good to see that the Warriors took advantage of their annual DC trip to check in with Obama, as well as chat with Pelosi. The Warriors are the clear favorites to win another championship in June, so expect another DC visit next year, just not at the White House.
